Tenneco Expands Technology Tour

The Tenneco Technology Tour (T3) and Monroe Ride and Drive experience, Tenneco’s signature undercar service training programs for North American automotive technicians and parts professionals, are expected to reach more than 8,000 participants over the course of a 36-city schedule in 2009.

Tenneco will also expand this year’s T3 curriculum, which combines hands-on diagnostic education and in-depth technical and selling skills training covering automotive ride control, brakes and emissions control systems, the company said.

The tour, which enrolled more than 7,000 automotive professionals last year, will kick off 2009 with a two-day session in Philadelphia starting April 7 and conclude Oct. 27 in Portland, Ore. It will visit 28 U.S. states, seven Canadian provinces and at least one location in Mexico, Tenneco said.

For the complete T3 and Monroe Ride and Drive schedule and information on other Monroe training initiatives, contact your Tenneco supplier, visit www.monroe.com, or call (734) 384-7846. (Tire Review/Akron)
