The National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) Fall general meeting in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay on Tuesday, November 4, 2008 at 1:30 pm will offer attendees a panel discussion outlining the various training information resources available to the aftermarket.
“The panel discussion will involve OEM representatives from the major vehicle manufacturers,” said Charlie Gorman, NASTF chairman. “The presentations will include information on a variety of training material, available in different formats, which will help aftermarket technicians prepare for the vehicle systems that will challenge them today and in the near future.”
The full list of participating OEM carmakers is still being confirmed and will be made available prior to the NASTF meeting. In addition to the panel discussion, the NASTF general meeting will offer committee reports and organization updates, along with allowing participants the opportunity to provide input and comment directly to NASTF. “We encourage and invite all automotive professionals to attend and participate. No registration is necessary,” said Gorman.
NASTF was established in 2000 to maintain an open dialogue between automobile manufacturers (or OEMs) and aftermarket repair technicians and to identify, communicate and resolve gaps in the availability and accessibility of automotive service information, service training, diagnostic tools, and equipment for the benefit of automotive service professionals and their customers. NASTF was incorporated in 2006. Additional details can be found at www.nastf.org.
