Jan. 14, 2016

Jan. 14, 2016—The Automotive Service Association (ASA) announced a partnership with the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) on Wednesday. The partnership will promote and support ASA’s 2016 regional management and technical training initiative for automotive service facility owners and repair professionals.

Those attending the two-day training sessions will receive credit from the Automotive Management Institute (AMI) toward earning their Automotive Accredited Manager (AAM) designation.

Planned training events will be held in Orlando, Fla. Feb-26-27 and Philadelphia April 8-9. Other events will be held in Southern California, Chicago, and Las Vegas.

“The partnership and ongoing collaboration among the associations is a defining moment for the industry,” said Dan Risley, ASA president and executive director. “Working together and leveraging each other’s strengths will benefit service repairers, suppliers and consumers. We are committed to continue exploring ways to deliver value to our members and helping the industry.”

“Delivering quality education and training at convenient times and locations for repair shop owners and managers is more important than ever,” said Bill Hanvey, Auto Care Association president and CEO. “Faced with rapidly developing vehicle technology, advanced management systems and higher customer expectations, these professionals must possess the knowledge and skills necessary to run efficient and profitable businesses. We look forward to collaborating with ASA on this and other initiatives to further enhance educational opportunities for the auto care industry.”
