"To the graduates of this shop management course, Congratulations!! I am delighted {as witnessed by your comments}, that you found the shop management course exceeded in value your investment in time and effort. This was the third shop management course we have sponsored, and your responses make worthwhile the money & time investment on our part. As the final comment, states "Now!! We have to implement".

The implementation of the "process", defines what we stand for at GORWOOD. We have successfully together "implemented" with our clients with proven results not just "theory". The result?, demonstrative mutual profitability for both business partners. A "culture" of together saying, "I will not let you down"! The future of our industry depends on it.

To those, who either never have, or have not taken the shop management course for a few years. I submit it would be the most intense three days you will spend, but from it you can achieve a true current comprehension of the Canadian automotive service industry. Reviewing published articles and manment letters of Mr. Greenwood while invaluable, does not in my opinion come close to the wealth of information imparted in the "live" shop management course. I submit that reviewing same, the e-learning centre and the "live" shop management course in tandem impacts an explosion of knowledge to embark on the two-three year process towards sustainable profitability. Just my opinion, I welcome yours. "
