March 10, 2015—AudaExplore announced Tuesday it donated over $3 million in software last year through the Collision Repair Education Foundation to various schools across the country.
The AudaExplore Educational Institutions Program began in 2010 and to date, more than 230 collision repair school programs in 40 states have benefited from donations of the company’s estimating software through the program’s partnership with the Foundation.
Under the AudaExplore Educational Institutions Program, AudaExplore provides a software and training package free of charge to vocational and technical schools throughout the U.S.
To qualify, schools must complete an online survey conducted by the Collision Repair Education Foundation.
“Without the generosity of AudaExplore, a Solera Company, many of these schools would not be able to afford such a great learning tool,” Clark Plucinski, executive director of the Collision Repair Education Foundation, said in a release. “Budgets are so small and schools can barely afford tape and sandpaper let alone this type of training program. AudaExplore has really stepped up to enhance the education for today’s collision repair students, and these students will have an advantage when going into the industry.”
