The Shoreline Community College Professional Automotive Training Center’s Dealer
Training Academy hosted the Vehicle Maintenance Management Conference (VMMC) for the fourth year in a row this week. The conference, which attracted approximately 150-300 industry participants from across the nation, ran from March 24-26.
The annual conference offers a chance for industry members to learn from experts in their fields about topics such as hands-on hydraulics, specialty vehicle design, parts recycling and diesel vehicle regulations among others. Between classes, participants have a chance to speak with a variety of industry vendors.
Michael Boehm, Director of Dealer Services and Manufacturer relations at Shoreline said, “This event is a great opportunity for Shoreline to brings folks from the industry to our campus and expose them to the great program we have here. It’s a chance for us to interact with and build relationships with industry leaders, and revenue generated by the conference helps support the continuation of the great program we have in place for our students.”
The conference attracted the attention of Seattle City Light, who displayed their Bucket Truck with green fleet technology at the event, as well as Snap-on who had their diesel lift on display.
