PPG MVP Training Earns I-CAR, AMI Accreditation

PPG Automotive Refinish has announced that its new MVP training courses centered on developing people and organizations in collision repair have earned accreditation from I-CAR and the Automotive Management Institute (AMI).

According to PPG, the set of three interrelated MVP courses – Job Relations, Job Instruction and Job Methods – are designed to develop the skills of managers and team leaders in their effort to build teamwork in their organization and create an exceptionally productive workforce. I-CAR students are eligible to receive 3.5 Gold Class points for each of the three courses, with AMI students eligible to receive 28 Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) credits each.

The curriculum for the skills-building courses is based upon the Training Within Industry (TWI) system of developing organizations. Conceived in the United States during the early 1940s as a way to dramatically boost industrial production during World War II, TWI also formed the foundation for a skills‐based system of developing people within the acclaimed Toyota Production System. TWI is still used by Toyota today and is referred to by many as the “Roots of Lean.”

“In essence, PPG has taken the highly effective teaching principles of TWI and developed a practical application specific to collision repair,” said Mike Gunnells, manager, MVP Business Solutions. “Upon completing these courses, attendees gain the practical skill set for helping transform a good employee into an exceptional one as well as the training required to unlock the potential of the entire organization.”

Intended for supervisors, team leaders, corporate trainers and anyone with leadership responsibilities at a collision repair center, the MVP Job Relations, Job Instruction and Job Methods courses are scheduled throughout the year at PPG Business Development Centers located throughout North America.
