Garage Gurus Resumes Training
August 4, 2020—Garage Gurus, an automotive training institute, has officially reopened all of its in-person, hands-on training locations, according to a press release.
According to the release, this includes the Mobile Automotive Training Center (MATC), which is on the road this week with its first series of training sessions for students in Maine and New Hampshire.
The relaunched program will feature instructional classes with Garage Gurus' ASE-certified master trainers and will cover topics such as ASE test prep, electronics, service writer, ignition, braking, drivability, steering and suspension, exhaust, and engine.
Created earlier this year, the MATC takes place in a 53-foot double-expandable trailer converted into a mobile automotive training center. All attendees and trainers will be equipped with the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE), while total class capacity has been reduced to a maximum of 12 students. Other safety improvements include the addition of interior dividers between workstations, an upgraded ventilation system, and a UV lighting package to aid sanitization practices. The trailer also is equipped with a vehicle lift so that attendees will experience applied learning outside the trailer during each training class.
Aside from this, Garage Gurus technical education centers are located in 12 areas: Atlanta; Baltimore; Boston; Chicago; Dallas; Houston; New Hyde Park, N.Y.; Rancho Dominguez, Calif.; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; St. Louis; Detroit; and Van Nuys, Calif.
