North Richland Hills, Texas -- October 27, 2016 -- The Automotive Management Institute (AMi) has announced it currently has over 120 training providers in its Training Provider Directory. AMi launched the directory in June as part of the launch of the "Next Generation of AMi."
"The Training Provider Directory is one example of AMi acting upon its core belief that knowledge equals competitiveness and learning is the only source of a sustainable competitive advantage," said AMi President Jeff Peevy. "We want to do all we can to facilitate and maximize learning within our industry".
A statement from AMi says the searchable directory has experienced tremendous support and activity from those searching for training resources and training providers ensuring their programs' industry exposure.
The Training Provider Directory provides a searchable database of management and technical training for both collision repair and mechanical service repair segments. AMi encourages training providers and instructors to participate by completing the "Training Provider Form" at amionline.org.
AMi has also developed the AMi Learning Foundation Program to encourage donations from industry businesses and individuals.
"The launch of the 'Next Generation of AMi,' represents a significant milestone for our industry's owners and managers. Individuals can complete coursework, take post-course exams, view and print transcripts, view completed and suggested courses and enroll in online courses," said Sheri Hamilton, AMi Board of Trustee Chair. "All of this is in addition to receiving AMi credit from classroom training industry-wide."
A statement from AMi says the organization has invested significant financial resources in online training courses to ensure management courses are available and affordable. The online catalogue offers students more than 100 courses in a wide-variety of topics.
