Penske Truck Leasing is one of seven winners of the 2013 National Excellence in Training Award, given by the Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC).

The other winners are: Bridgestone Retail Operations, Coordinating Committee for Automotive Repair (CCAR), KPA, NAPA Auto Parts, NAPA Autotech, and National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC).

Penske said it was lauded for its heavy-duty and medium-duty truck preventive maintenance (PM) certification program for the 5,500 maintenance technicians and customer service representatives it employs across North America.

“This new comprehensive curriculum helps drive our vision of an industry-leading maintenance workforce, and we thank ATMC for recognizing our successful efforts,” said Bill Jacobelli, senior vice president of maintenance for Penske Truck Leasing. “When we’re able to complete high-quality PMs consistently, we are better able to support our truck leasing, truck rental and contract maintenance customers and increase vehicle uptime.”  

ATMC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of training and professional development within the auto and truck service industry.
