Employee hand book

Message from the Founder-

I founded the school in 2013 because I saw a serious need for educational structure. Every thing we have done so far is to ensure the the best education a student can get. I want to keep the reputation as the best school. Having worked at a school that was involved in poor student practices I learned a lot of what a school should and should not do. In order for our school to be successful our students need to be successful. We want our students to achieve successful careers in there field. If they learn a lot and understand there field they will succeed.

The #1 rule of the school is the students get the training they pay for. In order to do this the classes have to be planned out and well prepared. The task of making materials is way to big to be left to the instructors so the school has pre made all class presentations. The materials will be covered every day and the tasks will be performed. This will ensure the students have been presented with what they need to be successful in the field. You can add but never subtract from the program. If you enjoy teaching and cover the materials your students will be happy. Years of work has been done to make it easy for the instructors to have successful classes therefor, The Power points are the property of the school and are not to be copied or distributed by any one. They are part of the presentation and if a student wants to review them it must be done on a school computer at the school. The students get the written hand outs. No one gets a the power points or any materials made or owned by the school unless it is specifically made to be distributed. No recordings of classes will be made or distributed with out exclusive right of the school.

#2 In order for a school to be successful in the long haul it must be legally compliant. All laws pertaining to but not limited to, Enrollment, Recruitment, attendance, harassment, and discrimination must be followed. If some thing is wrong we want to know and we want to fix it. If there is an issue bring it to the attention of one of the founding members. These issues will be resolved immediately and will not be allowed to escalate.

Our mission is to provide the best training at a affordable price and our objective is to produce a high percentage of students who obtain ASE certification and who demonstrate excellence while working in the automotive field.
