Leon’s Car Care Center Increases Automotive Tech Skills
Leon’s Car Care Center staff collectively completed more than 100 years of continuing auto technology education in the fiscal year 2016-17.
“Automobile technology is changing constantly,” manager Dale Warmuth said in a news release. “We have to be ahead of that change in order to provide reliable automotive repair and service. This past year NAPA Auto Parts together with Tenneco provided travel to Monroe, Michigan, for members of our team to observe the engineering of Walker catalytic converters and Monroe shocks and struts. It’s very useful for our technicians to see the entire technology behind today’s replacement parts.”
The release states that employees worked after hours to complete certifications in Napa Auto Care and O’Reilly’s First Call continuing education programs. A team — which included Warmuth, Lucas Sams, Trevor Atkins, David Pederson, Jim Frasier Jr., Bill Yeater, Mike Marlin and Dina Romero — also received Automotive Servic Excellence certifications.
Leon’s Car Care Center was established in 1961 by Leon and Elaine Warmuth. It is located at 929 Broadway in Eureka at the corner of Washington Street. For more information, call 707-444-9636 or visit www.leons-carcare.com
