Every June instructors from colleges and high schools around Florida converge on Orlando for cutting edge, hands-on training from instructors representing a myriad of manufacturers and vendors. This year marked the 12th annual FADA Instructor’s Summer Training Workshop. We served 131 secondary and post-secondary instructors from all parts of Florida, making this year the largest turnout yet. They represent 12 state collages, 14 technical colleges, 17 tech centers, and 44 high schools.

This workshop trains the teachers of the next generation of auto mechanic professionals who may one day end up working at your dealership.

The week-long event featured training from manufacturers and vendors combining classroom and hands-on learning in the shop. Mid Florida Tech’s automotive program provided a perfect backdrop for this event and several manufacturers provided vehicles specifically for this training.

This is a truly unique program and FADA is proud to be a part of it. A huge thank you Randy Houck whose hard work and dedication continue to make this program a one of a kind in the nation. A note from Randy:

“An event like this is the only way I know to impact student outcomes on such a large scale.  By “training the trainer”, we ensure that a better prepared entry level technician will be seeking employment at our dealerships.  The instructors you worked with last week will touch thousands of Florida families in the coming year and your company and products will be front and center in the classroom and at the dinner table.”

Below you can see the various manufacturers, vendors, and other organizations that helped make this workshop possible
