The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has announced it will host three new Service Information Workshops in Pennsylvania.

The workshops will be in Pittsburgh on July 8 at the Holiday Inn Select University Center; in Harrisburg on July 9 at the Courtyard by Marriott; and Willow Grove on July 10 at the Courtyard Philadelphia Willow Grove.

“The Service Information Workshops provide tangible proof to ASA members and prospective members of ASA’s commitment to provide the industry with information and training that will enable them to meet the challenges they face in today’s marketplace,” says John Scully, ASA’s executive vice president. “A better-trained and informed shop owner is always a plus for ASA and the automotive industry.”

The educational agenda includes discussions on computers and Internet resources necessary to access service information; manufacturer and third-party Web sites; diagnostic tools that may assist in handling a repair most efficiently; and the role of the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF). Attendees are encouraged to ask questions to address specific service information issues they have experienced. When space and equipment are available, these meetings may also include the opportunity for attendees to view a live vehicle reprogramming demonstration. Attendees are also eligible to participate in drawings for training videos and subscriptions to OEM service information Web sites.

ASA believes the current voluntary, industry-supported service information process protects independent repairers and consumers by allowing them access to the same information available to manufacturers and dealers. These workshops are part of ASA’s efforts to educate shop owners and technicians about current systems and how they can manage the many service information options available to them.

Additional workshops are scheduled for Rhode Island, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Florida. For specific dates, locations and times, visit
