ASA Announces Regional Training Programs
Nov. 19, 2015—The Automotive Service Association (ASA) announced on Wednesday a new initiative to bring management and technical training to several regions of the U.S. in 2016.
ASA has scheduled a training event with ASA-Florida for February, which will be held in Orlando, Fla. A few months later, a similar event will be scheduled in Illinois in cooperation with ASA-Illinois.
More details on the training are still to come.
These training events will be delivered in a two-day format, with management training on Friday and technical training on Saturday.
“We understand the value of a shop’s time, but we also understand its need for ongoing training if it’s going to remain viable and profitable,” said Tony Molla, ASA vice president.
Shop owners and managers attending the training will receive credit from the Automotive Management Institute (AMI) toward earning their Automotive Accredited Manager (AAM) designation.
“AMI has quickly re-established its presence in the industry as the only nationally recognized degree for automotive managers for the collision and service repair industries,” said Jeff Peevy, AMI president. “This is an ideal opportunity for shop owners and managers to earn credits toward their AAM in a single weekend.”
