Palatine, Illinois — March 10, 2017
The Coordinating Committee for Automotive Repair, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing best practice information and training resources to the automotive industry, has become the latest member of the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) National Member Benefit program.
CCAR, whose suite of auto industry training courses have been accessed by tens of thousands of users, has been recognized as an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Alliance Partner within the automotive industry since 2004.
CCAR’s line of hazardous materials handling courses – known as HazmatU – was specifically created at the request of the automotive OEMs.
“NIADA and its members are a perfect fit for the training resources we have to offer,” CCAR president Charles Ayers said. “We welcome the opportunity to broaden our reach and work proactively with the members of the association.”
CCAR’s learning management system, autoEHS (https://shipmate.autoehs.com), includes courses in English and in Spanish.
“We are thrilled to have CCAR bring its renowned automotive safety-related training programs to our independent auto dealer members as an invaluable resource to ensure employee safety, meet state and federal workplace safety guidelines, improve employee productivity and much more,” NIADA senior vice president of member services Scott Lilja said.
