Tekmetric Partners With Automotive Training Program

Aug. 3, 2023
Tekmetric has partnered with APAC ATI to provide shop management software for training facilities.

Tekmetric, a company that provides software for the automotive repair industry, has partnered with APAC ATI (Automotive Professionals Advancement Center for Automotive Technical Instruction) to provide shop management software for training facilities, according to a press release.

APAC ATI is a nonprofit affiliate of Star Motors European Service that was founded in 2020. It seeks to help at-risk populations–such as veterans, the formerly incarcerated and individuals who have completed recovery programs–find a fulfilling career in the automotive industry.

Students were first accepted into the 10-month program based on referrals, beginning in June 2022 with a group of six students. Those in the program learn both technical and soft skills through a combination of classroom instruction and performing hands-on work in real auto shops.

The program aims to utilize Tekmetric’s software to help students gain insight into how important collaboration, efficiency and customer transparency are in a shop’s daily operations. 

Additionally, Tekmetric will provide shop owners with resources for creating a safe work environment, as well as up-to-date tools and equipment, strong benefits and education opportunities.

“The training we offer is about more than just turning a wrench; we are truly breaking down barriers to build a national network of skilled technicians,” said APAC ATI Founder Chris Knuth.
