Industry Equipment, Input In The Classroom Means Trained Technicians Ready To Work





PHOENIX, April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI) has recently added a significant amount of training aids to its manufacturer-specific training programs. Harley-Davidson® and Kawasaki Motors have contributed more than 300 motorsports units to the MMI Phoenix and Orlando campuses, which students will work on directly in the labs.

Harley-Davidson donated more than 65 H-D motorcycles and more than 200 H-D engines to MMI in late 2011. Harley-Davidson and MMI also collaborated to develop hands-on training that is in alignment with Harley-Davidson University® PHD training and will help prepare the students for entry-level positions at Harley-Davidson dealership service departments.  The Harley-Davidson PHD Program is a system specifically designed by the factory to keep professional dealership technicians current with the latest technology and service procedures. The large donation of bikes and engines will be placed into service training within the Harley-Davison Elective at both MMI campuses. 

In addition, Kawasaki Motors recently donated 35 units consisting of motorcycles, ATVs, mules and watercraft.  These will be used in the Kawasaki sponsored, supported and equipped 12 week K-Tech Specialist Elective training program in Orlando and Phoenix.  With this type of support from Kawasaki, MMI K-Tech graduates will be better prepared for entry-level technician positions as they start their careers at Kawasaki dealerships across the nation.   

"These donations showcase the quality of the MMI programs and the professionalism of its graduates," said Dennis Hendrix, director of national accounts. "The support received from these partners assists MMI in preparing its graduates for entry-level technician positions within each of the specific brands across the nation."
