Automotive Management Institute Reaches Education Milestone

The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) recently achieved a major milestone by surpassing 2.5 million credits awarded since the program launched in the fall of 1989.

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 Accredited Automotive Manager (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.

“AMI has continued to grow and succeed because continuing education is an excellent investment. Without a doubt, a well-educated workforce is more prepared to meet the challenges of today’s rapidly changing industry,” said AMI Chairman Tony Passwater. “To maintain a competitive advantage, businesses can strongly benefit from an investment in their employees.”

AMI Executive Director Toni Slaton, AAM, added, “Each year, we have more than 10,000 enrollments in our approximately 700 AMI-approved courses. The industry-specific content offered through our EXCEL partners and at industry events has benefited thousands of shop owners and managers, and offers an ideal opportunity to learn and network with other industry professionals.”
