Federal-Mogul Motorparts Brings 'Garage Gurus' to Los Angeles
April 17, 2015—Federal-Mogul Motorparts on Friday announced that it has brought "Garage Gurus," its nationwide technical education network, to the Los Angeles market.
Technicians, service writers, shop owners and other representatives of the region’s more than 15,500 repair businesses were on hand to celebrate last night’s grand opening of the Garage Gurus training center in Van Nuys, Calif.
The new Van Nuys training center offers more than 100 onsite, online and on-demand courses designed to help technicians, shop owners, service writers, and other front-line professionals enhance their skills.
As part of the “black carpet” grand opening celebration, guests were able to swap stories with reality TV star Danny “The Count” Koker, a self-taught mechanic whose Las Vegas-based vehicle restoration and customization business is featured in the “Counting Cars” series on History.
Repair professionals and other guests had the opportunity to tour the new, 15,000-square-foot training center, meet several of Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ ASE-certified “Gurus,” inspect two of the network’s Web-connected “Gurus-On-The-Go” product technology vans and try a variety of new eLearning modules.
