Registration Open for University of the Aftermarket Online Courses

Registration is now open for the University of the Aftermarket’s line up of 15 new online Distance Learning courses for Spring Semester.

Each course is offered in a Web-based environment that enables aftermarket professionals to continue their progress toward an AAP (Automotive Aftermarket Professional) or MAAP (Master Automotive Aftermarket Professional) designation. The deadline for registration is Jan 3, 2011.

These semester-long courses are led by Northwood University faculty and cover a wide range of business, management and leadership topics of interest to aftermarket professionals.  Successful completion of the course awards 3.0 CEUs.
