The education opportunities provided to the industry on behalf of the Automotive Service Association (ASA) are vast and are delivered to repair professionals at the national, regional and local level. Working in cooperation with its affiliate and chapter groups, ASA is the leading provider of education among associations of its kind.

To help members and nonmembers alike stay informed about ASA-hosted education offerings in their area or nationwide, ASA has recently enhanced the education section of its website, Student information, a directory of ASA educational members, shop owner/technician information, a calendar of educational events and a list of ASA sponsored benefit providers who provide education and training products and services to ASA members are just a few of the enhancements made to the education section of the ASA website.

The May issue of AutoInc., the official publication of ASA, contains a sneak-peek of the many education sessions scheduled to be offered at the association’s annual trade shows – the International Autobody Congress and Exposition (NACE) and the Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS) – which will be held during Automotive Service and Repair Week (ASRW) Oct. 10-13, 2010, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Additional information about ASRW events will be available soon.

 “ASA delivers more education and training to automotive service and repair professionals than any other organization in the industry,” said Ron Pyle, ASA president and chief staff executive. “We understand that it can often be taken for granted, but as vehicles become increasingly more complex and the business model becomes more challenging, the need for best-in-class training and education resources will continue to grow and we will expand our capabilities accordingly.”

The ASA website also includes access to consumer tips, ASA’s popular shop locator, and the new ASA Marketplace, which showcases the association’s member benefits portfolio. To learn more about ASA’s dedication to service and repair professionals, the benefits of ASA membership and how to join, visit or call (800) 272-7467, ext. 295.
