AASP-MN to Host Seminars

Sept. 19, 2019

The seminars will be on real-world scenarios in automotive repair and post-collision service and repair.

September 20, 2019—The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers Minnesota (AASP-MN), has two learning and networking events scheduled this fall. Both sessions are open to anyone in the automotive service industry—membership in AASP-MN is not required.  

On Wednesday, Oct. 16, AASP-MN will host “Beyond the Four Strokes: What Do You Do When Nothing You See is Wrong, but Something is Broken?,” from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m., at EP Auto, Tire & Glass, Eden Prairie, Minn. The three-hour clinic, sponsored by Suburban Chevrolet and presented by Jerry Tempel, Principal Tech Training Specialist with Raytheon Professional Services, will help answer the question, “What do you do when you have swapped plugs, injectors, and coils and you still have the misfire?” The “Beyond the Four Strokes” course uses real-world scenarios based on vehicles from several manufacturers to focus on engine mechanical-related misfires diagnosis, SIDI engine service techniques and most recent engine sensor technology.

The cost to attend this session is $40 per member and $55 for non-members and pre-registration is required. 

AASP-MN will also be hosting “GM Advanced Security Systems: Post Collision Service & Repair” clinic for collision repairers, Oct. 17, at EP Auto, Tire & Glass.      
A Mech XChange will be held Wednesday, October 30, from 4 – 6 p.m. at TGK Automotive, Hugo, Minn. Attendees will have the opportunity to “talk shop” with fellow shop owners in a roundtable discussion about Shop Management System Software. This in-depth discussion will cover:

  • Major shop management systems currently in the marketplace
  • Features & functions
  • Digital vehicle inspections and other add-ons
  • Pros and cons

Attendees should come prepared to share their own knowledge and experiences with various SMS systems and ask questions of others.  

In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to tour TGK’s new facility and enjoy time visiting with others who own/work in independently-owned mechanical repair shops. 

There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is required.
