June 24, 2016—CARS, the Congress of Automotive Repair and Service, announced Thursday that the Young Technicians Symposium (YTS), powered by CARQUEST, will take place on Aug. 12 at the 2016 NACE/CARS Conference & Expo. 

Jim Cokonis, senior curriculum developer with CARQUEST Technical Institute and ASE Certified Master Technician, will lead the Symposium. It will bring together young technicians with at least two years of experience for a full day of intensive training, utilizing the latest teaching techniques. This year’s YTS will feature a scan tool diagnostic class on how to read and interpret scan tool data. 

"ASA and CARS are very excited about this year's installment of the Young Technicians Symposium," Donny Seyfer, Automotive Service Association chairman, said. "Our partners at CARQUEST Technical Institute have a really great program lined up for working technicians who are ready to make that next level jump from maintenance and light repair to diagnostician. Repair shop owners can reap great benefit by investing in their future and CARS and CTI promise a program that is very affordable thanks to support from CTI."
