The Coordinating Committee for Automotive Repair (CCAR) recognized the top ten users of its S/P2 e-learning program among GM Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP) schools. Ten colleges from all over the nation were honored at the 2006 IAGMASEP Conference in Portland, Oregon.
The NAFTC would like to extend congratulations to two of its Consortium members who received this recognition from CCAR. Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) in Ankeny, Iowa, and the Community College of Southern Nevada (CCSN) in Las Vegas, Nevada, both received certificates based on superior performance shown in their individual automotive programs for the 2005-06 school year.
“The recognition of DMACC and CCSN in receiving this award exemplifies the high quality of our Consortium member schools,” said NAFTC Executive Director Al Ebron. “Contributions like this from our individual members strengthen the NAFTC as a whole.”
CCAR is a not-for-profit organization committed to improving safety and preventing pollution in the automotive industry. The organization was developed with the help of the U.S. EPA to increase knowledge on environmental issues within the automotive industry. As a tool to train automotive industry workers and students, CCAR created the S/P2 e-learning program in 2002. S/P2, Safety and Pollution Prevention, training helps to reduce injury, illness, and environmental impact for workers and students involved in automotive repair, maintenance, and insurance claims.
Robert J. Slovey, National ASEP/AYES Manager, General Motors Service Operations, Warren, Michigan, said in a December press release, “This college team continues to exceed the standard in providing GM technician training in the areas of workplace safety and pollution prevention. It’s the kind of commitment that makes safer workers and safer environments for the world in which we live.”
