Garage Gurus has been reaccredited to Continuing Automotive Service Education (CASE) standards by the Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC) and National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
Garage Gurus, the technical education platform for technicians from Federal-Mogul Motorparts, initially earned CASE accreditation in 1998 and also earned several commendations from the accrediting team.
CASE is a voluntary standard developed to help ensure training programs – including course development, instructors, facilities and related resources – are consistent with industry best practices. ATMC administers the accreditation process, which includes a self-assessment and on-site reviews by an evaluation team. Accreditation is granted by ASE based on the findings of the evaluation team.
“We would like to congratulate Federal-Mogul Motorparts on the success of their training initiatives,” said David Milne, president, ATMC. “As automotive technologies continue to rapidly evolve, so must the knowledge and skills of today’s automotive service technicians. The Garage Gurus program is clearly leading that evolution and setting new standards of training excellence in the auto care industry.”
The Garage Gurus curriculum is available through each of 12 regional training centers; online via www.FMgaragegurus.com; on-demand through the Garage Gurus app; and on the job via Web-connected “Gurus-On-The-Go” product technology vans that visit repair locations throughout the workday.
“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.”
