Penske Truck Leasing has received the 2013 National Excellence in Training Award by the Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC).

One of seven companies to earn the honor, Penske was lauded for its heavy-duty and medium-duty truck preventive maintenance (PM) certification program for the 5,500 maintenance technicians and customer service representatives it employs across North America.

“When we’re able to complete high-quality PMs consistently, we are better able to support our truck leasing, truck rental and contract maintenance customers and increase vehicle uptime,” says Bill Jacobelli, Senior Vice President of Maintenance for Penske Truck Leasing.

“Judged by a panel of ATMC training professionals, the Penske program and six others were selected from among numerous submissions for their ability to meet training objectives in a highly effective and innovative manner,” says Dave Milne, ATMC President.

ATMC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of training and professional development within the auto and truck service industry.
