The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) honored its 17th class of Accredited Automotive Managers (AAMs) on Oct. 11, 2010 at an awards luncheon held during Automotive Service Repair Week (ASRW) in Las Vegas. The graduating class of 2010 had 95 automotive service professionals who earned the Institute’s prestigious AAM designation, the industry’s first business education accreditation, by successfully completing AMI courses and accumulating a minimum of 120 credits.
“It is my pleasure to recognize these individuals for their achievements,” said AMI Chairman Tony Passwater, AAM. “The character and dedication of these men and women make them an asset to our industry.”
AMI Executive Director, Toni Slaton, AAM, added, “This elite group of automotive service professionals join the 1,486 before them who recognize continuing education has become vital to ensuring career and business success. I applaud their diligence to plan for the future.”
AMI courses concentrate on five core areas of business management education: financial management; marketing and sales; operations and service; management and administration; and personnel and human resource development.
