In this day and age, collision repair professionals cannot afford to fall behind when it comes to evolving vehicle technology and OEM developments and procedures.

Recognizing how crucial it is for repairers to have access to as much training as possible, the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) will welcome Mark Allen, manager of collision, equipment, EV after sales service at Audi of America on Wednesday, June 22 at 6:30pm at the Holiday Inn (Clark) to discuss Audi tolerances, material considerations and EV preparedness.

Allen will provide guidance related to the manufacturer’s material considerations and tolerances, and he will answer common questions involving how to determine if there is unibody misalignment and if so, what can be straightened; he will also discuss body materials and associated processes. In relation to EV, shops can expect to learn everything they need to know in the areas of shop architecture, tools and equipment, chargers and storage to prepare to fix these up-and-coming vehicles.

Those who complete this training will earn a certificate which can be used toward their Auto Body License Renewal this fall.

AASP/NJ Collision Chairman Dennis Cataldo, Jr. encourages fellow repairers to take advantage of this valuable training opportunity.

“It’s a great resource that will help you earn a certificate toward your license renewal, as well as a good value for all the information you’ll learn.”

“This meeting will address such things as how to know if there is uni-body misalignment and, if there is, what can be straightened and so much more, while satisfying the training
requirement for the 2022 Auto Body License Renewal,” states AASP/NJ Executive Director Charles Bryant. “Shops can receive good, quality training that is so needed, while simultaneously receiving a certificate to be ready for the auto body license renewal process when the time comes. Don’t miss this extremely important meeting.”

Registration for this meeting costs just $35 per AASP/NJ member company in good standing and $75 per non-member attendee.
