The MCI course of study provides training starting with the basics and progressing through advanced troubleshooting while incorporating all the best practices for development and delivery of training.

A collaboration between General Motors and Raytheon Professional Services earned the award for “GM Service Technical College iVideo.” This program uses innovative interactive videos to repackage existing training or to create new training to support a blended learning experience for students.

The OTC Division of Bosch Automotive Service and Solutions received the ATMC award for their training program titled, “ADAS Camera Calibration and Alignment,” submitted by the company’s technical instructor, Steven Zack. This program trains technicians on how the camera feature of an advanced driver assist systems is calibrated, and how the vehicle controller uses this information with algorithms to determine time to impact.
