AAPEX Accepting Proposals for Joe’s Garage Training Program

AAPEX will announce the final selection of training sessions in mid-April. 

AAPEX 2024 is accepting session proposals for the Joe’s Garage training program.  

Training sessions will be presented during this year’s event, which is scheduled for Nov. 5-7 at The Venetian Expo and Caesars Forum in Las Vegas.

Proposals should focus on business management and technical topics and be geared toward technicians, service professionals and shop owners, event organizers said. 

Session proposals are due by Friday, March 15, and may be submitted on the AAPEX website

Proposals will be evaluated by a panel of independent repair shop owners and technicians using a review process and scoring system. Selection criteria include: relevance to the independent repair community; quality of proposed content and achievable learning outcomes; trainer qualifications; and relevance to attendees’ daily work and/or career. For questions, contact [email protected].  

AAPEX will announce the final selection of training sessions in mid-April. 

The Joe’s Garage training program at last year’s event focused on essential, timely and relevant topics including ADAS calibration; battery electric vehicle (BEV) and hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) services; electronification of the chassis; and EVAP diagnostics. Business-management topics included AI ChatGPT; dealing with overwhelm; executing successful acquisitions; superior service advising; understanding Gen Z; and attracting, hiring and retaining employees. 

AAPEX also offers additional training for service professionals in the one-of-a-kind, built-out shop located within Joe’s Garage. The shop has 10 service bays equipped with working lifts and running vehicles for hands-on training, as well as product and equipment demonstrations. 

Joe’s Garage occupies an entire floor (Level 1) of The Venetian Expo and is dedicated to meeting the needs of service and repair professionals. It also features several dedicated sections, including Tool & Equipment; EV (Electric Vehicle) Experience; Diagnostics/Telematics/Shop Management Solutions; Tire Servicing; and Transmission Supplier. 

New this year, ATRA’s Powertrain Expo, an international show with exhibitors and transmission repair specialists from around the globe, will be held in Joe’s Garage during AAPEX.
