March 19, 2013—AudaExplore has exceeded $3 million in software donations to the Collision Repair Education Foundation since the launch of its Audatex Educational Institutions Program in 2010.
To date, more than 137 collision repair school programs in 35 U.S. states have benefited from in-kind donations of AudaExplore's estimating software through the company's partnership with the Education Foundation.
"We've been a consistent supporter of the Collision Repair Education Foundation since it was established in 1991," said Wolfgang Ahrens, managing director of AudaExplore. "AudaExplore is proud to play a role in shaping the future of our industry by making our world-class technology available to schools so that students can step right into their careers with the knowledge that they've been trained on the very best, most complete estimating software available on the market."
The Audatex Educational Institutions Program provides a free comprehensive software and training package to vocational and technical schools throughout the U.S. that have qualified by completing an online survey conducted by the Education Foundation.
"AudaExplore's contributions are vital to our next generation of industry leaders," said Clark Plucinski, executive director of the Education Foundation. "On behalf of the collision repair instructors and students who benefit from this support, we are grateful to AudaExplore for its ongoing role in giving our students the best technical education possible."
