Business management training will focus on a range of topics, including marketing strategies, inclusive hiring, onboarding and employee retention practices, the modern connected shop, confident selling, and building a culture that employees will embrace.
All sessions will take place in training theaters in Repair Shop HQ, located on Level 1 of The Venetian Expo, and are accredited toward the Automotive Aftermarket Professional (AAP) and Master Automotive Aftermarket Professional (MAAP) designations.
