S/P2 Adds Course To Help Schools Meet ASE Accreditation
Nov. 20, 2018—S/P2 added a new course written specifically to help automotive service, maintenance and light repair, collision repair, and medium/heavy-duty truck programs meet ASE accreditation requirements.The new course is called “Preparing a Vehicle for Service and Working with Customers.”
The ASE Education Foundation Task Lists provide required a list of supplemental tasks ASE accredited schools are to meet. By providing this course to schools, S/P2 sees this as one more way they can help schools achieve and retain ASE accreditation.
“Achieving and maintaining ASE accreditation is a commitment to excellence that schools make,” said Kyle Holt, president of S/P2. “We are proud to help schools meet the required supplemental tasks on safety and environmental, personal standards, and ethics. This new course helps schools meet the tasks regarding preparing a vehicle for service and for the customer. It feels pretty good to expand our support of education and the next generation of technicians.”
“Preparing a Vehicle for Service and Working with Customers” helps students identify the information needed and the service requested on a repair order, review vehicle service history, demonstrate concern, cause, and correction in the repair process, and meet the requirement of completing a work order. It also covers topics ensuring the vehicle is prepared to return to the customer per school/company policy.
The new course has already been added, at no additional cost, to any schools with an active S/P2 Automotive or S/P2 Heavy-Duty/Diesel account. Any schools who sign up for a new S/P2 Automotive or S/P2 Heavy-Duty/Diesel account will also receive the course at no additional cost.
“Our schools are committed to improving the industry. This course is one small way we can continue to show a commitment to the future success of automotive education,” Holt said. “For those schools who have achieved or are seeking ASE accreditation, this should make their lives a little easier. For those who aren’t, it’s a valuable course they can use to help prepare students for their careers ahead.”
