A special one-day “Commitment to Training” event for automotive repair and collision repair professionals is coming to Washtenaw Community College in May.

Automechanika Chicago and its organizers, Messa Frankfurt and UBM Americas, have announced a series of training events at leading technical colleges in the region and WCC is the first to host the special sessions.

“This program, in partnership with vocational colleges in Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin, will feature instructors known for providing outstanding content that can help shops keep pace with changing vehicle technology,” said Jim Savas, vice president of UBM Americas, Automotive Group.

The all-day program begins at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, May 14. A morning session features a three-hour technical and
management training class. In the afternoon, a session will focus on collision repair and service repair audiences. Breakfast and lunch will be served for attendees.

“We are excited to be able to partner with Automechanika Chicago to bring together industry professionals and faculty as they learn the latest changes in the field,” said Brandon Tucker, WCC’s dean of Advanced Technology & Public Service careers. “This also allows us to showcase our world-class facilities and
equipment. Partnerships like this only strengthen the skillset of our faculty and in turn the students in our programs.”
