ALLDATA(R) Launches Online Training Garage To Facilitate Product And Career Training

ELK GROVE, Calif., Oct. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALLDATA LLC, the leading provider of manufacturers' automotive repair information and solutions for professional automotive service and collision repair shops, has entered into an agreement with Raytheon Professional Services to provide a comprehensive training site for the automotive industry.

"ALLDATA has always included training as part of a customer's product subscription," said ALLDATA Group Vice President, Kevin Culmo. "Our new Training Garage takes training to the next level, with classes on automotive technology, as well as soft skills and shop business courses. We believe repair professionals will appreciate the chance to advance their knowledge and skills at a very reasonable cost."

The ALLDATA Training Garage will offer unlimited access to 67 technical and 26 business courses, in English or Spanish. Subscriptions come in two configurations: Single User or Enterprise, which allows up to 10 users per shop. The 93 courses cover important business topics on all vehicle systems to help professionals further their careers, while helping shops optimize productivity, enhance customer relations, and boost profitability. All courses meet the requirements of the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and are suitable for every skill level, beginner through expert.

"We work with shop owners every day and we know how important they feel training is, yet how hard it is for them to balance training and production," said ALLDATA President, Jeff Lagges. "With Training Garage, we're giving them the relevant training they want, but making courses affordable and accessible online —24/7. An employee can log in from anywhere, select a course, and start training.  The courses are interactive and interesting, too."

"We will continue to offer training on ALLDATA products at no additional charge," added Culmo. "With Training Garage, we're adding an entirely new dimension, bringing high-quality automotive and business training to the shop, while giving employees the freedom to log on and train from virtually anywhere. It's a very exciting opportunity that we think shop owners will welcome."
