SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (July 26, 2016) — Garage Gurus, a technical education platform offered through Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp.'s Mortorparts division, has received reaccreditation from the Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC) and National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
The educational program has met Continuing Automotive Service Education (CASE) standards, according to Federal-Mogul.
CASE represents voluntary standards which help to ensure training programs align with the industry's best practices in all facets including course development, facilities, instructors and related resources. ATMC representatives oversee the accreditation process, which includes on-site reviews and a program self-assessment.
Garage Gurus received several commendations from the ATMC assessment administrators, including praise for Federal-Mogul's investment of “time, personnel and money to expand their training centers, introduce online training, enhance tech hotline service, and add tech vans. They have significantly raised the bar for others.”
Federal-Mogul Motorparts first received CASE accreditation for its technical programs in 1998 and launched its Garage Gurus program last year in an effort to help technicians and service professionals keep pace with the latest vehicle technologies. The program offers more than 100 workshops and a network for technical support as it continues to grow and implement learning centers throughout the country.
“We launched Garage Gurus to establish a new benchmark for technical training excellence within the auto care industry,” said Laura Soave, senior vice president and chief marketing and communications officer, Federal-Mogul Motorparts.
“The rapidly growing popularity of our courses, training centers, on-demand programs and product technology vans has told us we're making a real difference for technicians and other front-line professionals. CASE reaccreditation and the positive comments from the accreditation team provide further validation of this unique approach to customer support.”
