Automotive Students Complete More Than 1.4 Million S/P2 Online Tests from CCAR in 2009-10

S/P2 is an e-learning program developed by CCAR, a national not-for-profit organization, to address key safety and pollution prevention issues for automotive repair professionals.

During the recently completed 2009-10 school year, the Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) administered more than 1.4 million online exams to automotive students in its S/P2 Safety and Pollution Prevention e-learning program.

“I truly believe that the S/P2 courses are best-in-class offering both students and businesses the most accurate, reputable, and effective environmental and safety content,” said CCAR’s Chairman, Charles E. Ayers, Franchise Business Manager, Midas International Corporation, Itasca, Ill.

“CCAR was a pioneer in delivering this training content via the Internet, and there is no reason to doubt that our overall usage will continue to grow into the foreseeable future.”

S/P2 (www.sp2.org) is an e-learning program developed by CCAR, a national not-for-profit organization, to address key safety and pollution prevention issues for automotive repair professionals.

The training is based on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards, which require that personnel be trained on safety and environmental regulations at the beginning of their employment, and at least annually thereafter.

In addition to working with automotive training programs through the S/P2 e-learning program, CCAR also participates in three leading national competitions for automotive students: the National Automotive Technology Competition, the Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills, and the SkillsUSA National Championships.

“Our thanks go to all the automotive instructors who allow CCAR to work with their students, as our S/P2 school testing numbers continue to grow each year,” said Daren Fristoe, CCAR President and Chief Operating Officer.

“We know that by raising the awareness among students of the best environmental and safety practices, we can have a positive future impact on the auto repair industry, measured by reduced costs and extended careers.”
