The Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC) has issued a call for entries for the 2013 National Excellence in Training Awards. The annual program honors outstanding or innovative training programs designed for service or support in the transportation industry through its prestigious National Excellence in Training Awards. The awards are open to any person or entity providing training in the industry.

“These awards serve to recognize the important function that training and trainers serve in the complex business of transportation service and repair,” said Dave Milne, ATMC president. “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 are judged by an ATMC panel and awards are presented to programs that meet a prescribed level of excellence based upon several criteria, including the program overview, needs analysis, learning objectives, program materials/elements, delivery methods, measurement of the program’s effectiveness and program maintenance.

The 2012 National Excellence in Training Awards recipients include: Federal Mogul Technical Training Center, The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium, The Natural Gas Vehicle Institute, and NAPA AutoTech.

The application process is free to all ATMC members; $150 for non-members. The deadline to apply is Sept. 1. Awards will be presented in a special ceremony during the ATMC reception November 6th at Industry Week in Las Vegas.

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