The 2004 Partners In Training (P.I.T.) Tour, which offers Canadian automotive jobbers concentrated business training, reports that registrations for the six dates are proceeding well. "Despite the fact that we have barely begun our awareness campaign, we have registrations for every date," says Andrew Ross, publisher and editor of Jobber News Magazine. "And Toronto is already half full." The training program was created for the Jobber News Magazine P.I.T. Tour by leading automotive aftermarket business consultant Bob Greenwood, kicks off in mid-February and hits six cities across Canada in February and March. Sponsored by Blue Streak-Hygrade Motor Products, Dana Automotive Aftermarket Group, Federal-Mogul Canada, Gates Canada, Mark IV Industries (Dayco), NGK Spark Plugs Canada, Specialty Sales & Marketing and Tenneco Automotive, the P.I.T. Tour for jobbers hits Halifax February 16, Montreal February 17 and Toronto February 18. The tour makes its way to Winnipeg March 3, Calgary March 4 and Vancouver March 5. The one-day courses are being offered for $249 per person and will focus on business issues that jobbers need to understand about their operations and those of their customers. “I am really excited and looking forward to presenting these one day courses across Canada," says Greenwood. "They will be intense and they will be really informative. The participants will leave with comprehensive business tools to understand their shop customer’s business and point of view. The participants will end up with an edge in their marketplace and they will be fun." For more information and to register visit www.autoserviceworld.com, or call Maria Carlesimo at 416-442-2254.
