Shop ForemanPosted on: 05, October, 2021
The Automotive Management Institute (AMi), the industry's leading nonprofit provider and collaborator of administrative and management education for the mechanical and collision automotive sectors, is pleased to announce the development and launch of a new professional designation focused on the technician in a leadership role: AMi Accredited Shop Foreman.
The new designation is designed to provide training focused on the unique requirements of the foreman/mentor role. The accreditation represents ten months of industry work to identify and develop requirements, based on interviews and subject matter expert input. AMi President, Chuck Searles, states, "Often, mentors in the shop environment receive technical training and that’s it. To be successful as a leader, they have to pick up the rest as they go. The shop foreman accreditation fills that gap with soft-skill courses from AMi approved industry training providers.”
This new designation requires multiple categories of training, including shop management basics; coaching, mentoring, team building, and five all-new courses focused on the shop foreman role.
