S/P2 Adds New Course to Help Schools Meet ASE Accreditation

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

OVERLAND PARK, KAN., Nov. 20 – S/P2 (sp2.org) has added a new course written specifically to help automotive service, maintenance and light repair, collision repair, and medium/heavy-duty truck programs meet ASE accreditation requirements.

The new course is called “Preparing a Vehicle for Service and Working with Customers.” The ASE Education Foundation Task Lists provide required a list of supplemental tasks ASE accredited schools are to meet. By providing this course to schools, S/P2 sees this as one more way they can help schools achieve and retain ASE accreditation.

“Achieving and maintaining ASE accreditation is a commitment to excellence that schools make,” said Kyle Holt, President of S/P2. “We are proud to help schools meet the required supplemental tasks on safety and environmental, personal standards, and ethics. This new course helps schools meet the tasks regarding preparing a vehicle for service and for the customer. It feels pretty good to expand our support of education and the next generation of technicians.”

“Preparing a Vehicle for Service and Working with Customers” helps students identify the information needed and the service requested on a repair order, review vehicle service history, demonstrate concern, cause, and correction in the repair process, and meet the requirement of completing a work order. It also covers topics ensuring the vehicle is prepared to return to the customer per school/company policy.

The new course has already been added, at no additional cost, to any schools with an active S/P2 Automotive or S/P2 Heavy-Duty/Diesel account. Any schools who sign up for a new S/P2 Automotive or S/P2 Heavy-Duty/Diesel account will also receive the course at no additional cost.

“Our schools are committed to improving the industry. This course is one small way we can continue to show a commitment to the future success of automotive education,” said Holt. “For those schools who have achieved or are seeking ASE accreditation, this should make their lives a little easier. For those who aren’t, it’s a valuable course they can use to help prepare students for their careers ahead.”
