As a part of the program, each technical school will receive training materials along with other valuable fuel system diagnostic and repair tool information. In addition, students in the program will receive an official PUMP-ED performance pack that includes educational materials, tools and more.

FAIRFIELD, Ill. — Airtex Fuel Delivery Systems is introducing a new pilot program focused on educating future technicians in the automotive industry. The Airtex PUMP•ED program will train student technicians across the country in the areas of fuel system diagnostics and fuel pump installations. 

Set to kick off in the fall of 2014, the Airtex PUMP•ED program will include selected technical schools and universities across the country. Airtex will send their ASE certified technicians to classrooms to provide the most up-to-date information about today’s complex fuel systems. The technicians will show students the steps to make the right fuel system diagnosis, technical tips to avoid difficulty during repair work, and how to follow through to successful fuel pump installations.

“Airtex knows that the future of automotive care is in the hands of these young students and we’re excited to partner with these schools and their instructors to help equip the next generation,” says Brandon Kight, director of marketing and program development at Airtex and ASC Industries. “The PUMP•ED program provides a unique opportunity to pass on some of our 79 years worth of fuel systems knowledge with these future technicians.”
