Feb. 23, 2015—AAMCO has announced the opening of AAMCO University, a training facility in Newnan, Ga.

The center, 30 miles southwest of Atlanta, will provide current and future AAMCO technicians, managers and franchisees with service training through a best-in-class curriculum within its high-tech training facility and repair center.

"The automotive repair industry is increasingly more complex as the car industry continues to evolve, and it's essential that our AAMCO technicians continue to offer best in class service. We are committed to ensuring that our technicians have the training and expertise that our customers expect from our brand," AAMCO president and CEO Brett Ponton said in a release.

The complex will house training activities for AAMCO technicians, managers, as well as prospective, new and current franchisees. The educational facility offers both lecture and hands-on technical instruction with a state of the art theater-style classroom, as well as a full-service AAMCO center.  The facility promotes "distant learning" via webcasts and ability to record detailed hands-on "how to" videos for the thousands of employees that may not be able to attend a class at any given time.

In addition to courses at the Newnan headquarters and training complex, AAMCO University offers over 300 interactive courses via its online learning management system.
