ASE Instructor Marlo Miranda with ASE ETL trainees at the Auto/Diesel Institute of Michigan.
On April 25th and 26th, 2023, Baker College’s Auto/Diesel Institute hosted the first ASE Education Foundation Evaluation Team Leader (ETL) training to be held at the institute. The event brought together automotive, collision and medium/heavy duty truck instructors interested in becoming Evaluation Team Leaders. The ETLs are responsible for visiting various high schools, tech centers, colleges, and universities to evaluate them for accreditation or reaccreditation.
The training was held by ASE, ADI’s accreditation agency, and was facilitated by ASE Instructor Marlo Miranda and ASE Vice President George Arrants. The event hosted seven trainees from Michigan and Illinois, including ADI Dean Ken Boyer.
Attendees received over 20 hours of training and had the opportunity to connect with industry peers. The event provided a unique opportunity for attendees to gain a deeper understanding of the ETL role and learn from experienced ASE professionals.
Baker College’s Automotive Program reaccreditation process was included in the curriculum during the training. The program passed with flying colors, with no concerns raised, and received a glowing report from the ASE Evaluation Team.
Baker College’s Auto/Diesel Institute is proud to have hosted this training and looks forward to future events that bring together industry professionals and provide valuable training opportunities for instructors.
