SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (July 9, 2015) — Federal-Mogul Motorparts will expand its Garage Gurus technical education network with the opening of four regional training centers in Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Rancho Dominguez, Calif.
The company, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp., currently operates training centers in Skokie, Ill.; Van Nuys, Calif.; and the Bronx, N.Y.
Garage Gurus, launched in April, is a “Tech First” initiative designed to help repair professionals keep pace with the latest automotive technologies, according to the company. Each Garage Gurus training center offers more than 100 onsite, online and on-demand courses taught by the company's team of more than 100 ASE-certified experts. The network also reaches thousands of additional repair professionals through Web-connected “Gurus-On-The-Go” product technology vans, the company said.
“The Garage Gurus concept has been extremely popular in each of our initial markets,” said Dan Ninivaggi, CEO of Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “The demand for technical education and advanced product support at the shop level has never been greater. I believe it is our responsibility as a leading manufacturer to help these front-line professionals better understand, diagnose and repair the latest vehicle technologies.”
The four new centers will expand the network to seven major markets with a combined reach to more than 45,000 automotive repair businesses, said Southfield-based Federal-Mogul, which plans to open eight more training centers later this year.
