Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Certifies Wilhelm Automotive For Advanced Hybrid Repair
Peoria, Ariz.—Wilhelm Automotive, Arizona’s oldest family owned and operated automotive repair business, is now certified by the SAE in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Advanced Diagnostics. With the certification, Wilhelm is one of only two shops in the state to hold the highly technical certification, and one of about 90 SAE certified shops in the nation.
The certification included an intensive 40-hour training class with lectures, hands-on labs and daily assessments, culminating in a practical and written exam. The SAE partnered with Automotive Research and Design (AR &D) for additional technical support.
“The practical goal of this credential,” says Dr. Mark Quarto, Chief Technical Officer and lead instructor for AR & D, “is to expand the hybrid diagnostic processes and systems information currently used by the service repair industry, and use additional diagnostic testing methods and equipment.
“One of the best ways we can ensure our customers can trust our services and expertise is by continuing to have the most knowledgeable and well-trained technicians in the state,” said Wilhelm President Chris Garman.
Wilhelm Automotive has been offering honest, guaranteed auto repair services to Arizonans for 85 years, making them the oldest family owned and operated repair shop in the state. In January 2014, Wilhelm became certified by The Hybrid Shop and are now hybrid auto repair experts as well.
