Here is the AAPEX 2021 technical and business management training to be offered in the new Repair Shop HQ.
The schedule features a wide range of topics and focuses on education for shop owners, service advisors and technicians.
AAPEX 2021 will take place Tuesday, Nov. 2 through Thursday, Nov. 4, at the Sands Expo and Caesars Forum Conference Center in Las Vegas.
Twenty shop owners judged the more than 120 submissions and identified training that will equip service professionals with the skills to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
All classes are intermediate or advanced-level and will be led by the industry’s most renowned trainers and speakers. For the full speaker lineup, visit Repair Shop HQ speakers.
Technical training sessions will cover a range of topics, including advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and calibrations, scan data analysis for diagnosing drivability issues, fuel trim diagnostics, and servicing hybrids and battery electric vehicles.
Business management as well
Business management training sessions will include filling the technician void, a P&L boot camp, superior service advising, succession planning, advanced financial strategies and navigating the business realities of the new aftermarket.
All sessions will take place in the four new training theatres in Repair Shop HQ and are accredited toward the Automotive Aftermarket Professional (AAP) and Master Automotive Aftermarket Professional (MAAP) designations.
Registration for AAPEX opens in early May and at that time, attendees will be able to select training sessions for $25 each.
