NACE | Automechanika Chicago Offers Top Technical and Management Training
If there’s one thing everyone in the automotive industry agrees on, it’s that ongoing training is no longer an option in keeping up with changing technology. So if you haven’t already signed up to attend the inaugural NACE | Automechanika Chicago, scheduled for July 26-29, the Mechanical Division Operations Committee urges you to do so now.
