Shop Fix Academy, a leader in training and coaching for the automotive repair industry, has received accreditation for its core management course from the Automotive Management Institute (AMi). Shop owners who complete the company’s “Driving Growth” course will now qualify for 32 credits for one of AMi’s professional designations.
“We are thrilled that AMi has recognized that our Driving Growth course helps shops of all types and sizes overcome the challenges that so often make the difference between success and failure,” said Shop Fix Academy Founder Aaron Stokes. “Having AMi’s accreditation provides us with more credibility and demonstrates the value of our programming.”
The Driving Growth course offers a comprehensive approach to successful shop operation and management. The program includes more than 17 hours of content delivered through nearly 100 videos covering everything from managing employees to analyzing financials to strategies to reduce parts costs. Shops that purchase the course also receive access to charts, tables and infographics that can be used as staff resources. Stokes, an automotive industry veteran with nine service centers, will also offer one-one-one coaching to those who purchase the course.
“Shop Fix Academy has developed an educational program that is engaging, easy to follow and a great solution for shop owners who don’t have the time for in-person training,” said AMi President Jeff Peevy.
AMi members who complete the Driving Growth course will also be eligible for a free sneak preview of Shop Fix Academy’s Master Mind Group trainings, which are led by Stokes and involve a select group of shop owners who provide support and guidance to each other through meetings and other events.
