ASRW 2010 Attendee Registration Opens, Educational Program Revealed

The 2010 educational program at the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) and the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS) will feature more than 80 educational sessions divided among three tracks: Management, Technical and Women’s Professional Development. Many of the management sessions are accredited by the Automotive Management Institute (AMI), while the technical sessions are focused on today’s most relevant technical topics. Additional add-on education will be presented by I-CAR, the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). These industry events, sponsored by the Automotive Service Association (ASA), are co-located at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., starting Sunday, Oct. 10, during the third annual Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW).

Online attendee registration opened today, and attendees can now register for the expo and all educational sessions. Attendees can register at early-bird prices between now and Aug. 17.

"Today, automotive professionals need relevant and timely information on topics to address the business challenges they deal with on a daily basis,” said Bill Haas, ASA’s vice president of education and training and creator of the 2010 educational program. “Our goal in developing this year’s sessions was to have subject matter experts provide true ‘take-away’ value so attendees can put what they learn at ASRW to work immediately upon returning to their collision repair or automotive service shops.”

Sessions will be offered in both 90-minute and 3-hour timeslots. Tracks are specific to NACE and CARS with emphasis on either management or technical topics, but all ASRW registered attendees have access to any session they wish to attend.

Session highlights in the management track include:

• Advanced Production Management (Bernie Blickenstaff)
• The Human Side of Lean Management (Kathi Hanley)
• Recruiting and Retaining Quality People (Richard Flint)
• The Best Pay Programs on Earth (Bob Cooper)
• What Women Want (Jody DeVere)

Detailed technical instruction will also be offered, including:

• Vehicle Security Systems (George Lesniak)
• Green Bullets: Hybrid Vehicle Service (Parts 1 and 2) (John Forro)
• Body Control Systems Diagnostics with ACDelco
• Electronic Transmission Diagnostic Strategies (Chris Chesney)
