ATMC seeks Training Award nominees

May 22, 2012

The Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC) has issued a call for entries for the 2012 National Excellence in Training Awards.

The annual program honors outstanding or innovative training programs designed for service or support in the transportation industry. The awards are open to any person or entity providing training in the industry.

“These awards serve to recognize the important function that training and trainers serve in the complex business of transportation service and repair,” said Dave Milne, president of the ATMC. “The technology in the industry is constantly changing, and without talented trainers and effective programs, the ability of technicians and other support personnel to keep vehicles on the road would be greatly diminished.”

The application process is free to all ATMC members and requires a $150 application fee for non-members. The deadline to apply is Sept. 1, 2012. Awards will be presented in a special ceremony during the ATMC reception at Industry Week in Las Vegas, Nev., Oct. 31, 2012.

The 2011 recipients include: Bridgestone Retail Operations, LLC, Delmar Cengage Learning, Delphi Product and Service Solutions, Jiffy Lube International, and Volvo Cars North America.
