Training may be the new recruiting of the future.

Oct. 11, 2021—The Automotive Management Institute has launched a new professional designation focused on the technician in a leadership role: AMi Accredited Shop Foreman. 

The new designation is designed to provide training focused on the unique requirements of the foreman/mentor role.

This new designation requires multiple categories of training, including shop management basics; coaching, mentoring, team building, and five all-new courses focused on the shop foreman role.

"Often, mentors in the shop environment receive technical training and that’s it,” AMi President Chuck Searles said in a statement. “To be successful as a leader, they have to pick up the rest as they go. The shop foreman accreditation fills that gap with soft-skill courses from AMi approved industry training providers.”
