‘The Group’ Attends Fort Hood Credentialing Assistance Fair

The Group Training Academy powered by AVI was the only vendor at the fair representing the automotive industry.

Grapevine, TX and Staunton, VA – The Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) was invited to participate in the first-ever Credentialing Assistance Fair sponsored by the Fort Hood Educational Services Division of the United States Army on July 18 in Fort Hood, Texas. The program, created by Michael Engen, an Educational Services Officer at Fort Hood, is intended to help active duty soldiers gain a competitive educational advantage, whether they transition to civilian life or stay in the military.

“We were honored to be invited and have the opportunity to participate in the Fort Hood Credentialing Assistance Fair,” said Larry Pavey, CEO of the Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group). “As many of our members employ veterans and many of our customers are either veterans or have veterans on staff, this was an excellent opportunity to show how The Group and The Group Training Academy can provide training expertise to those currently serving as well as those looking to pursue automotive careers once they leave the service.”

The Group Training Academy powered by AVI was the only vendor at the fair representing the automotive industry.  Active-duty soldiers at Fort Hood turned out in great numbers to investigate possibilities for furthering their military careers or seeking valuable credentials for a transition to civilian life.

Also in attendance at the fair were educational vendors that included universities, technical schools, professional certification centers and on-demand training companies. They were all on site to offer educational options and advice to these active duty troops to help them understand what it takes to make it in the industry/career they feel passionate about.

Available 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week, The Group Training Academy includes a broad range of training options, from ASE test preparation to automotive, diagnostic, diesel, transmission, shop management and scan tool training videos, plus training resources, diagrams, reading materials, quizzes and interactive resources. The training is presented in a video format designed especially for automotive professionals.
