Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 21, 2015
For over 40 years, McGee Auto Service & Tires, a family-owned tire and auto repair business in Daytona Beach and Tampa, FL, has been proud of the level of professionalism displayed by its technicians and service advisors. Today, McGee is offering its techs a chance to advance toward their career goals with their McGee University program.
McGee University is a way for technicians to make the step up from General Maintenance Technicians to Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Master Technician status. Master Technician is a significant upgrade from other ASE certifications, as a Master Technician has to be able to demonstrate expertise in diagnosis and repair across a wide range of vehicles, systems and procedures.
McGee Auto Service & Tires sets the bar high for a technician to be considered for McGee University. First, a technician must be a member of the McGee team for at least a year’s time; they are then nominated by store managers on the basis of their drive, initiative and work ethic. The next part of the screening process is for nominees to write an essay detailing their interest in participating in the program, and then interview at the McGee corporate office. Eight candidates will then be selected, representing the best of the best in each McGee Auto Service & Tires auto repair department.
For each month of the year-long process (beginning in August 2015), candidates will have one week of instruction and training at a hotel, with three weeks’ worth of study and bookwork. At the end, all participants will be ASE certified Master Technicians, eligible to wear ASE’s blue shoulder patch on their uniforms. Considering how quickly automotive technology keeps advancing, all ASE Master Technicians are required to recertify every five years to keep their status current.
ASE Master Technician certification is a powerful tool for any automotive tech, and an important career milestone. It’s the high ground of the auto repair field, and certification doesn’t come easily. It means a broader knowledge base that can open many doors career-wise, making a Master Technician more valuable to a company. McGee Tire & Auto Service wants to help their employees in their professional development. They recognize that an employee who feels rewarded is an employee who’s motivated and takes real pride in his/her work…and that’s beneficial for the employee, the company and the customer.
