Autologic Diagnostics, in partnership with WORLDPAC Training Institute (WTI) and Direct Capital, hosted their third annual National Conference and Tech Sessions (NCTS) earlier this month at the M Resort, Spa, and Casino in Las Vegas. Doubling in size from the previous year, the 2012 NCTS was attended by 300 individuals from across the U.S. and around the globe. Some came from as far as Australia and New Zealand.

The NCTS was comprised of two days of intensive training classes. BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Land Rover and Volkswagen/Audi lines were covered, as well as WORLDPAC classes on BMW, Volvo and shop management. Along with the training classes, open sessions were held for Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche providing the chance for greater personal interaction.

“One of Autologic’s prime differentiators is the technical support and training we provide for our customers," said Kevin Fitzpatrick, CEO Autologic Diagnostics Inc. "The NCTS is an important annual event for both Autologic and our customers, delivering a ton of valuable technical training in a span of a few days. Our NCTS events have been incredibly popular. With a sell-out crowd the 2012 NCTS has been biggest and best so far!"

Classes started early Friday morning, March 9. The U.K.’s Brian Chaffe was flown in to teach BMW: F Series. Caleb Pacheco, Justin Kidd, Rob Pevera, Dave Meseck and Steve Young from Autologic Diagnostics taught Porsche, CIP, Mini, Land Rover and Mercedes-Benz, respectively.

Saturday’s classes included Volkswagen/Audi taught by Gary Machiros, and also featured WORLDPAC classes. Special guests from WORLDPAC included Eric Scharping, teaching BMW Engine III; Allen Osborne and Jimmy

Abercrombie, teaching Volvo; and Scott Wheeler, teaching "Increasing Sales Success." Also on Saturday were open sessions for Mercedes, Land Rover and Porsche.

At the closing dinner, Peter Toland, managing director of Autologic Diagnostics, addressed the audience and thanked everyone for attending and making the event a great success. Toland also thanked WORLDPAC and Direct Capital for all of their support, and everyone behind the scenes who ensured the event went smoothly. He also announced that, while next year the event will be back on the east coast in Orlando, and in 2014, NCTS will be brought back to the M Resort in Las Vegas.
