2015-ami-gradsThe Automotive Management Institute (AMI) recently honored its 21st class of Accredited Automotive Managers (AAMs). The graduating class of 2015 includes 58 automotive service and repair professionals who earned the Institute’s AAM designation by successfully completing AMI courses and accumulating a minimum of 120 credits.

The continuing education offered by the Institute helps automotive service professionals improve their business management skills. In addition to providing business management classes, the Institute offers the AAM designation, the industry’s first business education accreditation. AMI courses concentrate on five core areas of business management education: financial management, marketing and sales, operations and service, management and administration, and personnel and human resource development.

“Hats off to these graduates who dedicated their time and efforts to increase their knowledge,” said AMI Vice Chairman Darrell Amberson. “Not only will they reap the rewards, but all who work with them will benefit. Knowledge is power, and it changes the world we live in.”

AMI President Jeff Peevy added, “It was an honor to recognize this new group of elite professionals and add them to an impressive list of past AAM graduates. It is important to acknowledge the accomplishment represented by the AAM designation and its relevance to improved business performance. Learning is the only source of a sustainable competitive advantage, and this group, through this achievement, has displayed their interest in their personal and business success.”

The graduation took place during the Automotive Service Association’s “Celebration of Excellence” award ceremony July 22nd at the GM Heritage Center in Sterling Heights, Mich. – a site near ASA’s NACE | CARS 2015 events in downtown Detroit.
