SKOKIE, Ill. (April 24, 2015) — Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holding Corp., has launched Garage Gurus, an extensive network of technical training and product support resources — including multiple training facilities — designed to provide its service shop customers with a competitive edge.
The Southfield, Mich.-based automotive supplier called Garage Gurus a “first-of-its-kind comprehensive technical education platform” that offers “onsite, online and on-demand training” for technicians, service writers and shop owners. The program, which debuted in April, is a key element of the firm's “Tech First” initiative aimed at strengthening the automotive service industry's support of repair and maintenance professionals.
