The Toronto stop of the six-date Jobber News Partners In Training (P.I.T.) Tour for auto parts wholesalers is sold out. 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. There are still a few spots open for all locations except Toronto. 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. "The response, particularly to Toronto, has been really gratifying," says Jobber News publisher and editor Andrew Ross. "People have often said that Toronto is the worst place to organize training and this response has, at the very least, shown that it is not always true. "I have to give a lot of credit to the field sales efforts of our sponsors who have helped immeasurably in getting the word out for all our locations," says Ross. "Of course, credit has to also go to the jobbers who have signed up. They have taken an important step toward improving their business." "The student manual for the Partners In Training tour is 70-pages," says course leader Bob Greenwood. "These guys won’t know what hit them, but they will feel it!"
