Pre-, Post-Scanning Topic of Debate at AASP/NJ Summer Certification Training
July 11, 2016—The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) held their regional training seminars last week, covering topics such as new repair technologies and labor rates. Attendees received training certificates good toward renewal of shops’ 2016 New Jersey Auto Body License.
The seminars featured Larry Montanez of P&L Consultants in Totowa and Toms River, N.J. Montanez prompted pre- and post-repair vehicle scanning as a topic of debate.
“How many people look up repair information upon every single car when they write an estimate?” Montanez said. “You cannot assume anything in this industry … we are in an age now that is rapidly changing. Not having the time is simply not an excuse anymore.”
“One of our top priorities is to make sure our members are educated and prepared for the regulations required,” AASP/NJ president Jeff McDowell says. “Having someone are knowledgeable as Larry come in and help us with that is invaluable. Our goal is for all the collision repair shops in the state to join AASP/NJ so that everyone is educated and in compliance.”
