Academy, a continuing education technician training program offered by Trucks, has received Continuing Automotive Service Education (CASE) accreditation from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
The accreditation acknowledges Mack’s focus on quality and offering customers after-purchase support and service, Mack said. Mack Trucks Academy was evaluated against established industry standards to ensure that continuing education training meets best practices.
“Receiving CASE accreditation spotlights the high-quality training programs offered through Mack Trucks Academy,” said Stephen Roy, president of Mack Trucks North American sales and marketing. “Meeting CASE standards shows Mack’s commitment to developing exceptional training programs to help increase the service and support for our customers while continuing to support our dealers.”
Mack explained that training programs play an integral part in Mack’s customer support strategy and prepare dealer technicians and service personnel to support customers in each area of Mack’s Pedigree Uptime Protection service and support suite – service management, maintenance plans and vehicle diagnostics. Mack Trucks Academy provides extensive training for 14 different dealership job roles, including sales, parts, service and technician, as well as training for drivers. Courses are available through e-learning and instructor-led classes conducted at seven locations in the U.S. and Canada.
ASE is a non-profit organization established to improve the competence of automotive technicians through voluntary testing and certification. ASE established CASE Accreditation as a voluntary program after perceiving the need for ongoing training of experienced service technicians to keep up with increasingly complex technology.
