LEESBURG, Va. The Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC) has announced a call for entries for its Annual National Excellence in Training Awards. ATMC will honor outstanding or innovative training programs designed for service or support in the transportation industry through the awards program, which is open to any person or entity providing training in the industry.
“These awards will serve to recognize the important function that training and trainers serve in the complex business of transportation service and repair,” said Dave Milne, president of the ATMC. “The technology in the industry is constantly changing and without talented trainers and effective programs, the ability of technicians and other support personnel to keep vehicles on the road would be greatly diminished.”
The submissions will be judged by an ATMC panel and awards made to all programs that meet a prescribed level of excellence based upon several criteria, including the program overview, needs analysis, learning objectives, program materials, measurement of the program’s effectiveness and program maintenance.
The application process is free for all ATMC members or $150 for non-members. The deadline to apply is Sept. 15. Awards will be presented in a special ceremony during the ATMC reception Nov. 2 during Industry Week in Las Vegas.
