Tennecos Monroe Ride & Drive program adds key industry training events in 2013

Training seminar provides extensive knowledge and drives confidence of shop owners, service & parts professionals

Tenneco, an innovator in undercar training programs, announced its plan to attract nearly 10,000 attendees to its 45-stop calendar for 2013. The Canadian cities that have been chosen are:

*June 11 – Chicoutimi, Que.

*June 13 – Longueil, Que.

* June 18 – Ottawa, Ont.

*June 20  – Mississauga, Ont.

*June 25 – Welland, Ont.

Now in its 12th year, the Monroe Ride & Drive program was designed to help technicians identify the characteristics and differences of worn versus properly functioning ride control components and to recognize the impact these components have on overall vehicle safety.

“We’re proud to continue to offer such a critical educational initiative to the aftermarket,” said Chuck Osgood, manager of training and sales operations, North American aftermarket, Tenneco. “It’s such a small investment of time compared to the remarkable value you’ll bring back to your customers.”

The 2013 Monroe Ride & Drive program also features enhanced curriculum, including key new ride control trends, exclusive training in innovative undercar technologies and the industry’s only hands-on ride and drive training experience. This driving experience gives service technicians an opportunity to compare the steering, stopping and stability characteristics of vehicles with worn OE ride control components and new Monroe ride control replacement components.

The Ride & Drive program was designed to help improve replacement diagnosis and confidence when recommending ride control components to consumers. The program is led by several highly acclaimed automotive industry veterans and Monroe ride control training experts.
