2012 NORTHEAST Show to offer auto body compliance class
Feb. 15, 2012—The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) will offer an auto body compliance class during the 2012 NORTHEAST Show to help attendees remain compliant with their state auto body license, the organization recently announced.
AASP/NJ said New Jersey’s deadline for auto body license renewals is in September. All attendees of the training class "NUCAR Presents: Hybrid Aftermarket Service" will receive a certificate that can be applied to the training requirement of New Jersey’s 2012 auto body license.
The class, which will be held March 10, will educate attendees on how to safely work with hybrid vehicles. Class topics will include the proper disabling of hybrid systems, the intricacies of hybrid batteries, welding, paint booth challenges and safety information. The class will be presented by Jim Mickle of General Motors and facilitated by Nick Halliday, wholesale parts manager for NUCAR, according to AASP/NJ.
"Jim is a highly qualified manufacturer representative, and we have had a longstanding, great relationship with NUCAR. We are very excited to be bringing both of them in to NORTHEAST to present this course,” said Charles Bryant, executive director of AASP/NJ. "The complex technology of hybrid vehicles is something that repairers are going to see more and more often in the very near future, and it's crucial that they learn the ins and outs of repairing them properly and safely. We are offering this course especially for those who have not yet fulfilled the training requirement of the N.J. auto body license, but I highly recommend all repairers take this course."
