The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has announced dates for the first two SCRS seminars of 2010.
The first series will be a continuation of the 8-hour intensive training program, "Improving Workshop Efficiency," which was offered in the Atlanta, Seattle and Los Angeles markets in 2009. Instructor Steve Feltovich provided the participants with a focused understanding of the history of lean production and the application of the process of continual improvement within collision repair facilities.
The course explains how to: run a shop more efficiently and effectively, raise output quality while lowering operating costs, capture more market share through continuous improvement, maximize production and profit opportunities, and develop systems and processes for assuring greater customer loyalty.
SCRS has partnered with Sherwin-Williams, ALLDATA Collision Connect and Summit Software as sponsors of the event and will be bringing the next class co-hosted by Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) to Clark, New Jersey, on Jan. 20, 2010. In addition to the course content, attendees of the class will receive 15 credits toward their Automotive Management Institute (AMI) accreditation.
SCRS is also adding another seminar series to its roster, "Profiting from Control," which will be instructed by industry veteran Jeff Hendler. The 8-hour seminar looks at opportunities and processes to allow today’s shop owners to regain control of their businesses, leading to better management techniques, better trained and more satisfied employees, and better more productive businesses.
SCRS and the Auto Body and Painting Association of Hawaii (ABPAH) will co-host this event in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Feb. 20, 2010, and the seminar will run from 8:45 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
SCRS will add additional course dates periodically.
