North Richland Hills, Texas -- February 6, 2017 -- It’s become common knowledge by this point that technicians must understand scanning to ensure proper repairs and calibration. However, the Automotive Management Institute (AMi) has introduced a new course designed to make sure managers understand the process and tools as well.
AMi’s latest online course is Management's Guide to Scanning and New Technology. According to AMi, the 108-minute online course covers essential information needed by collision repair managers to make decisions about scanning and other new technologies. Each module offers a management perspective on:
• What it means to scan
• Types of scans
• Types of scan tools
• OEM positions
• OEM vs Aftermarket
"This course provides a wealth of information for those needing to make decisions for their repair businesses. It organizes the information in a way that makes it understandable," says Darrell Amberson, AMi Vice Chairman and President of Operations for LaMettry's Collision.
The course is the result of industry collaboration from industry experts and shop owners from across the country. In the AMi online format it can be paused and revisited at the user's convenience.
This course will provide two credit hours toward all AMi professional designations, including Accredited Automotive Office Manager (AAOM), Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM), Accredited Master Automotive Manager (AMAM) and upcoming Accredited Collision-Repair Estimator (ACE) and Accredited Master Collision-Repair Estimator (AMCE).
