I used to have a guy thay worked for me that had the same attitude you do. I am not trying to be rude by real world truth is you should not be in a van and out on your own after 10 months. If your company thinks you are above average learner and wants to put you in a truck you should be following another tech from job to job, which would not make sense sine it would be a waste of money (gas). My guess is you are in a truck because they need a body. The guy that used to work for me was in an apprenticeship program (4th year of a 5 year union program) used to complain about the other techs to me and thought he could do better. He was a hard worker so I gave him a truck to see what he could do. Too many call backs later I gave him a choice. Come out of the truck, ride with another mech and take his lead from him to refine his skills or find another company to work for. He chose to leave. Since then his attitude has not improved and and due to that fact he has worked for 5 different companies in two years. You need to change your attitude, go to school and get some training. Word of advice, you will only get out of school what you put into it.
