“Path to Certification” Forums to Highlight AASP/NJ’s 40th Annual NORTHEAST® Automotive Services Show

Post 19 of 251

Following the success of last year’s “Body Shop Certification and You” discussion panel at NORTHEAST 2016, the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) is expanding the discussion to a four-session series to gain perspectives from all parties involved in the repair certification process: The OEMs, the tooling and equipment providers, and the shops themselves. These discussions will take place at this year’s 40th Annual NORTHEAST 2017 Automotive Services Show, happening March 17-19 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ.

“Every year we face the challenge of presenting something that will not only educate our attendees, but also keep them one step ahead,” says AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell.  “Last year, our initial OEM certification program panel helped inform attendees of what was on the horizon. Since then, the topic has exploded, and so we thought we’d incorporate the theme of certification throughout the weekend of NORTHEAST 2017. Certification is the future of this industry, and we plan to cover the topic inside and out at the show.”

The planned sessions include:

Session 1: THE SHOP PERSPECTIVE
Friday, March 17, 5:45pm – 7:00pm

Session 2: THE OEM PERSPECTIVE, PART 1
Saturday, March 18, 11:00am – 12:30pm

Session 3: CONSIDERATIONS IN TOOLING & EQUIPMENT
Saturday, March 18, 1:00pm – 2:30pm

Session 4: THE OEM PERSPECTIVE, PART 2
Saturday, March 18, 3:00pm – 4:00pm

Registration for these sessions as well as the rest of the NORTHEAST educational slate will be available February 1st at aaspnjnortheast.com.
