Ford Pushes Online P2 Training for Dealers

Ford Motor Company has advocated online training in safety and pollution prevention -- “S/P2” -- to Ford and Lincoln-Mercury dealers across the U.S.

Created by the Coordinating Committee for Automotive Repair, S/P2 is an Internet-based training that addresses key safety and pollution prevention issues for automotive repair professionals. It has been crafted to adhere to U.S. EPA and OSHA standards, which require that shop personnel be trained when they start work and at least annually on safety and environmental regulations.

“S/P2 is industry-recognized and recommended for dealership use as part of an overall environmental awareness plan,” said Al Rocker, field operations manager/ technical service operations, Ford Customer Service Division. “Ford and Lincoln Mercury Dealers are encouraged to participate in the S/P2 training, which can play a valuable role in the important task of safety and environmental stewardship in both the collision repair and service repair departments.”

S/P2 is also provided free of charge to automotive schools and training programs throughout the U.S. Currently, over 1,600 schools have access to the S/P2 courseware, representing a student audience of more than 130,000. S/P2 tracks technician/student progress through the training, grades tests and is constantly updated as changes occur in federal and state laws.
