The Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC) has issued a call for entries for the 2012 National Excellence in Training Awards.
The annual program honors outstanding or innovative training programs designed for service or support in the transportation industry through its prestigious National Excellence in Training Awards. The awards are open to any person or entity providing training in the industry.
“These awards serve to recognize the important function that training and trainers serve in the complex business of transportation service and repair,” says 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 are 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/elements, delivery methods, measurement of the program’s effectiveness, and program maintenance.
The application process is free to all ATMC members and requires a $150 application fee for non-members. The deadline to apply is Sept. 1, 2012. Awards will be presented in a special ceremony during the ATMC reception at Industry Week in Las Vegas, Nev., Oct. 31, 2012.
2011 recipients include: Bridgestone Retail Operations, LLC, Delmar Cengage Learning, Delphi Product and Service Solutions, Jiffy Lube International, and Volvo Cars North America.
