ACDelco Presents Technician Training Recognition Program
July 2, 2015—ACDelco has unveiled a training recognition program for technicians. The ACDelco Technician Training Recognition Program awards technicians with a special medallion for each core ASE training path completed.
“Technicians and service centers that go the extra mile to provide service expertise to their customers deserve to be recognized,” said Dale Tripp, manager of ACDelco aftermarket training. “In this business, training is a vital investment for keeping technicians engaged and growing your customer base.”
The ACDelco Technician Training Recognition Program is open to members of ACDelco’s Professional Service Center, Regional Service Center and Key Fleet Repair and Maintenance programs. The program gives technicians the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in each of the core automotive ASE areas.
The core ASE areas are represented on a training path, each of which includes about 40 hours of combined web-based and face-to-face training. This allows participants the opportunity to compete a portion of the training online. The other portion, completed in the classroom, provides valuable networking opportunities with an experienced instructor and other skilled technicians.
The training path courses represent the latest automotive technologies. Ten available training paths offer technicians the ability to achieve their “Specialist” status:
- A0 – Alternative Propulsion
- A1 – Engine Repair
- A2 – Automatic Transmission/Transaxle
- A4 – Suspension and Steering
- A5 – Brakes
- A6 – Electrical and Electronics
- A7 – Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning
- A8 – Engine Performance
- A9 – Light Duty Diesel
- A10 – Body Electrical and Communications
These paths also contain a professional or elective portion, where participants can choose which courses to complete.
Upon completing a path, technicians are awarded with a professionally designed and cast medallion. Service Centers will receive an equivalent medallion and a plaque to display in the front of the shop. All award recipients will also receive a printed certificate summarizing the courses on the path they’ve completed and a letter acknowledging their “specialist” status.
