Jobber News Magazine has launched a 2005 Partners In Training Tour. Building on the successful 2004 P.I.T. Tour, the one-day jobber training session will hit six Canadian cities this September. The tour is hosted by Canadian aftermarket business consultant and Jobber News columnist Bob Greenwood. Greenwood created the training program specifically for the P.I.T. Tour. The 2005 P.I.T. Tour is sponsored by Affinia Brake & Chassis, Blue Streak-Hygrade Motor Products, Federal-Mogul, Gates Canada, Dayco Canada, NGK Spark Plugs of Canada, Tenneco Automotive, and, new this year, Castrol Canada. Sponsorships make it possible to offer the course for the same $249 as in 2004. The P.I.T. Tour will be offered in Moncton, N.B., Toronto and Kingston, Ont., Edmonton, Alta., Kelowna and Vancouver, B.C. This year’s course adds important jobber operations modules in response to feedback from attendees of the 2004 course. "While the reviews were overwhelmingly positive, when pressed, some of the attendees wanted additional material to help them manage their own businesses, in addition to understanding their customers’ business,” says Jobber News publisher and editor Andrew Ross. "Accordingly, we have added sections on ROI, employee communications and evaluation, and more," says Ross. With the additions, the course offers attendees of the 2004 edition reason to come back for a refresher, as well as providing even more for new attendees.
