UBM Community Engagement Program has joined with Automotive Management Institute (AMi), National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and Technicians Service Training (TST) to provide scholarships for NACE Automechanika Chicago.
The program will cover travel expenses, training costs and access to trade show product discovery. The aim is to bring affordable training to more automotive professionals in need.
NACE Automechanika, now recognized as the largest U.S. tradeshow dedicated to high-end technical and management-related training for automotive service and collision repair shops, will take place July 26-29 at McCormick Place West in Chicago.
Scholarships will cover travel and hotel expenses for recipients as well as any costs associated with training courses during NACE Automechanika Chicago.
Recipients also will receive cash vouchers redeemable with exhibitors at the NACE Automechanika Chicago expo to purchase tools, equipment and other services required to enhance their skillsets.
“We are pleased to work with three wonderful organizations in AMi, NATEF and TST as we all work to further the access to quality, in-demand training for automotive professionals across the industry,” said Jim Savas, GM & VP of the UBM Automotive Group. “We are fortunate to have the UBM Community Engagement Program support us in making it possible for more repairers and owners to participate in NACE Automechanika Chicago and continue to learn and improve their skills.”
