BEDFORD, TX — The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has created a new educational seminar to address information availability issues for collision repair professionals. The new three-hour seminar, “Electronic Service Information in a Collision Repair Facility,” presents automobile manufacturers’ collision repair information now available on the Internet. The course will be taught at several events this year, including the International Autobody Congress and Exposition (NACE) on Nov. 5 in Las Vegas.
The class includes live demonstrations of collision-specific and related mechanical sections of several OEM service information Web sites. The course is approved by the Automotive Management Institute (AMI), and attendees receive six credits toward the Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) designation.
The course is taught by Bill Haas, AAM, ASA’s vice president of service repair markets. Haas received the AAM designation in 1996 and has been ASE certified since 1976. He is an AMI-approved instructor and former shop owner with more than 25 years of experience in the automotive service industry.
“By managing online resources, a collision repair business will realize additional revenue streams and increased profitability from more efficient repair processes,” said Haas. “Attendees will leave this seminar prepared to implement the systems, policies and processes necessary to effectively manage these resources.”
