PrintFederal-Mogul Motorparts expanded its nationwide “Garage Gurus” technical training network to South Florida with the grand opening of a state-of-the-art training center in Miramar on Saturday, October 17. Automotive repair professionals from across the greater Miami area were on hand to tour the Garage Gurus facility, which will offer onsite, online and on-demand training and related support to professionals from among the region’s thousands of vehicle repair businesses.

“Today more than ever, front-line automotive repair professionals are demanding more training to stay current with ever-changing diagnostic and repair requirements as they work tirelessly to keep consumers safe in their vehicles,” said Dan Ninivaggi, CEO, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “We are committed to filling our responsibility as a leading manufacturer to provide the training and support these professionals require. Garage Gurus will help them obtain the skills they need to stay current with changing vehicle technologies and consumer needs.”

Accessing critical diagnostic and repair information and related skills-based training has long been a challenge for the nation’s nearly 220,000 automotive repair businesses. Garage Gurus answers this need through more than 100 onsite, online and on-demand courses taught by Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ 100-plus ASE-certified “Gurus.” Each course is offered in English and Spanish languages.

Area technicians, shop owners and others will get a first-hand look at the modern diagnostic equipment and other resources available in the new training center, located at 11650 Miramar Parkway, Suite 700, in Miramar. They also will be able to inspect two of Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ Web-connected “Gurus-On-The-Go” product technology vans, which travel among regional repair shops, providing technicians with problem-solving solutions, technical assistance and local training.

The new training center is the eighth of up to 15 Garage Gurus locations scheduled to open this year. The training network is already operating in Atlanta; Baltimore; Chicago; Dallas/Fort Worth; the Bronx, N.Y.; Rancho Dominguez, CA; and Van Nuys, CA.
