  • DEG: What is the Database Enhancement Gateway?
  • OEM1Stop: This site is a collection of manufacturer information in respect to the repair of their vehicles; if it is printed, you will find it here.
  • Your ever-changing daily work environment: A peek into the evolution that has taken place and will continue to change the environment you work in.
  • A legal perspective on the quality of repairs you complete. What you are responsible for and ultimately accountable to provide.
  • The insurance perspective on repairs based upon policy provisions: Why is it that, at times, the insurance representative appears to be telling you how to fix the car?
  • OE manufacturer certification programs: They are here and demand to be heard from. As a repair technician, find out why repair methods must not be compromised. These are just a few of the elements that affect you every day. You need to be aware of what is in it for you and to understand the positive impact they have on you and your career.

In addition to these discussion topics, there will be presentations and demonstrations relating to:
