AMI Launches Training Web Site - BodyShop Business

AMI Launches Training Web Site

A new Training On Demand Web site that will feature interactive Webinars, pre-recorded archived classes, DVD-quality video downloads and other training resources has been launched by the Automotive Management Institute (AMI).

The new site,, will initially offer monthly Webinars on a variety of topics, including sales and marketing, customer service, telephone skills, employee management and more.

Students can register for upcoming live, interactive Webinars or take advantage of previously offered sessions in the on-demand archive. Participants of the 60-minute Webinars will earn two credits toward the institute’s Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) designation.

“Shop owners and managers should be aware that ‘business as usual’ and minor improvements are not going to set their business apart in the future,” said AMI Board of Trustees Chairman George Witt, AAM. “In fact, change in the business environment comes faster and faster with each passing year. Businesses that become complacent will quickly find their customers being targeted by more innovative competitors.”
