NACE | CARS 2015 has announced that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen will provide training in Detroit July 21-25. Several of these companies will be using this year’s show as a platform to launch new training programs.
“The support and participation of the car manufacturers is a significant and historical development,” said Dan Risley, ASA president and executive director. “Although they’ve provided training in the past, the industry has never experienced so many classes being introduced for the first time at one event. Service and repair professionals will benefit from attending and learning directly from the car manufacturers on how to repair the cars of today and tomorrow.”
The OEMs have an opportunity to serve several segments of the automotive industry at one event. Leadership representing the collision, service repair and insurance markets will be in attendance to gain insight on the latest in carbon fiber, high-strength steel and aluminum repair, as well as service-ready information and telematics. And, in addition to exhibit floor displays and demonstrations, several of the car manufacturers will be displaying their new model vehicles. Attendees can expect to see presentations, seminars and training on the most up-to-date OEM technologies. Many of the OEM training programs are complimentary with the purchase of an Expo Pass.
