Education, tradeshow and networking highlight ASA-Northwest’s Automotive Training Expo
SeaTac, Wash.—The Automotive Training Expo (ATE) returned to Seattle for its 2019 event, March 22-24. Classes were once again sold out and the trade show was a success.
Several new technical classes were added this year, which included both intermediate and advanced alignment courses, hybrid/EV classes, advanced driver assist systems (ADAS), as well as OEM training for VW, BMW, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, plus plenty of basic classes for entry-level techs.
Attendees came from throughout the Northwest, western Canada, California, and other U.S. states and territories.
In addition to the three days of training classes, ATE offered a two-night trade show with more than 50 vendors showcasing automotive parts and products, tools and equipment, plus training and business services. Thousands of dollars in prizes and giveaways are provided each year to attendees.
