head of the class award

The award was created in 2011 and is administered by the Auto Care Association Education Committee on behalf of the association. The award was created to recognize companies that continually invest in their employee education and training, as well as promote the value and benefit that this investment provides to employees, their companies, and the entire auto care industry. The Auto Care Association takes pride in honoring these companies annually. All companies who are committed to fostering constant growth and learning in their employees are encouraged to apply. 

The 2016 application will be available soon. To apply, applicants must include information directly related to the education and training practices of their company, including what prompted the company to invest in training, training for job competency vs. education for personal growth, the types of training accomplished, the initial goals, their experiences, results of the training and any future plans. Companies are asked to describe their experience in essay form as well as respond to general questions about the program.
