SERVICE-EDU will hold a series of two-day advanced automotive repair training courses for technicians during October and November, in the metropolitan areas of Chicago, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Los Angeles.
SERVICE-EDU is a new training program for professional automotive technicians held in partnership with the campuses of Universal Technical Institute (UTI) across the United States and sponsored by Gates, MAHLE and NGK Spark Plugs.
Donny Seyfer, co-owner of Seyfer Automotive Inc. in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, will provide the keynote address, “Defining the Connected Car,” for events scheduled for Oct. 7-8 at the UTI campus at 2611 Corporate W Dr. in Lisle, Illinois, and Oct. 21-22 at the UTI campus at 220 Byers Creek in Mooresville, North Carolina.
