The Most Underused OEM Service Info Resources

(Honda, Nissan, Toyota, VWoA, Isuzu Trucks, Navistar)

Forty light vehicle and heavy duty OEMs provide service information resources for access by technicians outside their franchise dealership. Few independent technicians realize the full value of information provided on any one of these OEM technical information websites. These 15 minute sessions will reveal a treasure of opportunity to put each of these manufacturers information and tool resources to use in your job.

TechForce Foundation is on the Road to GREAT Technicians

NASTF and the TechForce Foundation are committed to a coordinated solution for the long-debated shortage of qualified technicians. This session will accelerate the industry on the road to recruiting great kids into the technician profession, developing them into great technicians and keeping them with a lifetime of opportunities.
