ATMC 2014 Training Benchmark Survey
The Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC) is conducting an annual survey to establish training benchmarks within the Auto and Heavy-Vehicle Service and Repair Industry. The process involves parallel surveys sent to training providers and to training consumers (working technicians, service advisors, shop managers, and parts distribution personnel). The survey is designed to establish a series of metrics to help the industry recognize trends, provide a comparison standard, and align the offerings of training providers with the needs of training consumers.
