ATMC Call for Entries for 2011 Training Awards

The awards recognize the important function that training and trainers serve in the complex business of transportation service and repair

LEESBURG, VA – The Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC) will honor outstanding or innovative training programs designed for service or support in the transportation industry through its Annual National Excellence in Training Awards. The awards are 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 to all ATMC members and requires a $150 application fee for non members. The deadline to apply is September 15, 2011. Awards will be presented in a special ceremony during the ATMC reception at Industry Week in Las Vegas, NV, November 2, 2011.

For more information or an application see the Training Awards page at www.atmc.org or call 703-669-6670.
