SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (Oct. 16, 2015) — Vehicle components maker Federal-Mogul Motorparts will extend its Garage Gurus network to south Florida with the opening Oct. 17 of a training center in Miramar.
Automotive repair professionals throughout the Miami area are being invited to tour the new facility, which will offer onsite, online and on-demand training and related support to professionals from the region's thousands of vehicle repair businesses.
“Today, more than ever, front-line automotive repair professionals are demanding more training to stay current with ever-changing diagnostic and repair requirements as they work tirelessly to keep consumers safe in their vehicles,” said Dan Ninivaggi, CEO, Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp.
“We are committed to filling our responsibility as a leading manufacturer to provide the training and support these professionals require. Garage Gurus will help them obtain the skills they need to stay current with changing vehicle technologies and consumer needs.”
According to Federal-Mogul, accessing diagnostic and repair information and related skills-based training has long been a challenge for the nation's auto repair businesses. The company is seeking to answer this need through more than 100 onsite, online and on-demand courses taught by its 100-plus ASE-certified “Gurus.”
Each course offered through the Garage Gurus training centers are available in English and Spanish.
Federal-Mogul debuted the Garage Gurus concept in April with the opening of its first three regional training centers — in New York City's Bronx borough; Skokie, Ill.; and Van Nuys, Calif.
In July, the firm expanded the network with training centers in Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas/Fort Worth and Rancho Dominguez, Calif.
The new Florida training center is the eighth of up to 15 Garage Gurus locations scheduled to open this year, according to Federal-Mogul.
