Shop Business Analysis program approved for AMi credit

North Richland Hills, Texas—The Automotive Management Institute (AMi), a nonprofit provider and collaborator of front office and management education for automotive collision and mechanical service repair professionals, announced the approval of Management Success’s “Shop Business Analysis (SBA).” Students successfully completing the SBA will be awarded 20 AMi elective credits hours toward the achievement of AMi’s Accredited Automotive Office Manager (AAOM), Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) and Accredited Master Automotive Manager (AMAM) professional designations.

“We are proud to add the ‘Shop Business Analysis’ program to our growing list of AMi-approved courses,” said AMi President Jeff Peevy. “The SBA is more than a management class or workshop — it’s a shop assessment that uses various tools, including the Shop Analysis Tool (SAT). The shop analysis program will assist participants in discovering their strengths and weaknesses.”  

Senior Vice President of Business Development Robert Spitz added, “The SBA takes an in-depth look at the key areas of their business. This includes finances, marketing and social media. The shop owner then receives a personalized report, along with suggested solutions of how they can take their business to the next level. This service is unique because it was developed by Management Success’s client advisory board, designed to handle the problem of travel, time and individual need.”
