Technician Test Preparation Program from Delmar Honored by the Automotive Training Managers Council

Clifton Park, NY – November 1, 2011 – Delmar, part of Cengage Learning and a leading provider of learning solutions for ongoing career development and education, today announced that the Technician Test Preparation (TTP) program has been honored by the Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC) as a recipient of the National Excellence in Training Award. The award will be presented to Delmar at the annual ATMC Industry Reception in Las Vegas, NV on November 2, 2011.

Delmar’s Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) TTP product is an innovative, online program designed to fully teach ASE content and practices and prepare professional technicians for ASE certification exams. While most technicians have the knowledge and skill base to pass ASE exams, many find typical test-taking methodologies to be challenging. The TTP program was designed specifically for these types of learners and delivers information logically, so as to help technicians better prepare for the style and format of actual ASE exams. The program has been widely adopted by major national corporations as well as local, state and regional organizations, and these businesses have seen significant increases in the number of ASE certified technicians, as well as in overall productivity.

“We are honored to be recognized by the ATMC with this prestigious industry award,” said Kristen Davis, director, professional transportation learning solutions, Delmar. “This award is a reflection of our ongoing commitment to creating products that are innovative, user-friendly and improve the efficiency of professional transportation training and professional development. Having been trusted by professional technicians for over six years, the award-winning TTP program has been proven to fully prepare technicians for ASE certification exams and increase the probability of passing on the first try.”

The ATMC National Excellence in Training Award is given each year to five deserving industry firms in recognition of outstanding training programs. The awards were designed to emphasize the importance of training and how it contributes to the success of the automobile and trucking industries. All eligible submissions are judged by a panel of ATMC training professionals and the winners are selected from among numerous others for their ability to meet automotive training objectives in a highly effective and innovative manner.
