Advance Auto Parts has announced a partnership with the Midwest Auto Care Alliance (MWACA) to provide auto parts and training support to MWACA member facilities, including a rebate program. The recently formed group, formerly affiliated with ASA Midwest, is a nonprofit association led by independent repair shop owners.
Advance, a platinum partner of MWACA, also announced a mentorship and apprenticeship initiative designed to attract and support new technicians in the automotive service industry. The initiative will identify internal shop trainers and provide a structured on-the-job curriculum to improve technician knowledge and focus on productivity enhancements.
Advance also is a top-level sponsor of the Vision Hi Tech Training Expo, one of MWACA’s annual events, this year being held Feb. 28 to March 3 in Overland Park, KS.
