LEESBURG, Va. — The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) is hosting a free webinar on June 12 entitled: "What to Expect When You're Expecting (an Entry-Level Technician)."
Kyle Holt, president of S/P2.org — an Overland Park, Kan.-based skilled trades training institute — will host this webinar, during which he is expected to discuss how career tech schools are going to be reshaped in the years to come. The webinar will air at 4 p.m. EDT.
Many of this year's graduates of automotive, collision and/or diesel servicing programs didn't put their hands on a vehicle for the last two months of school, a situation the ASE said it expects will affect service technicians and their shops.
The technician shortage is getting worse, the ASE said, but it doesn't have to be a problem if dealt with appropriately.
During the webinar:
• Technicians can find out how they can make more money and be more productive by mentoring young technicians.
• Shop owners and managers will learn how to prepare their shops to beat the competition by building a pipeline of young technicians with mentoring programs and seeking out young techs with ASE certifications and industry-recognized credentials.
