AMI Announces Applications for $1,000 Scholarship to Attend the AVI Training Conference in Las Vegas

Application deadline is Sept. 10.

The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) is accepting applications for the $1,000 Automotive Video Inc. (AVI) Education Scholarship. AMI’s resource development effort, EXCEL, in conjunction with AVI established the scholarship to help automotive service professionals obtain the management education and technical training essential for success in today’s ever-changing industry.

AVI, a leader in automotive diagnostic and repair training programs for automotive repair professionals since 1994, will fund the scholarship using proceeds from its “Casino Night,” a fundraising effort held during AVI’s Annual Training Conference.

The educational scholarship program is aimed at helping to develop quality technicians, managers and shop owners. The scholarship will be applied toward the recipients’ expenses to attend the 2010 AVI Training Conference in Las Vegas, Nov. 4-5. The conference offers an educational lineup of technical training courses, AMI management seminars, a vendor area and the opportunity to network with other automotive professionals.

To be eligible for the award, applicants must be a minimum of 21 years of age; must have a minimum of two years work experience in the mechanical repair industry; must demonstrate an interest in self-improvement through education and training; and if the applicant is not the business owner, must be recommended by the owner. AMI trustees and their employees, and AVI employees, are not eligible to apply.
