Pocket Bikes – Guinness World Record Attempt
Here is one of our students, Eric Gallagher actually holding one of the CRF-50s that was going to be used in the World Record Attempt. Three men, 1500 miles across 9 States in 12 days! Read more here: http://map.globalmikereid.com. Because the bikes were going on the road they had to be registered and that meant they had to undergo the Enchanced Inspection process. You just never know what shows up at our door! Can’t imagine riding that pocket bike for roughly 150 miles a day! The event was sponsored by Montgomeryville Cycle Center, Baja Designs, Start Skydiviing, Triumph Philadelphia, and the Golden Aspen Motorcycle Rally. Proceed benefited Homes for our Troops. Cool or crazy, you decide!
In March 2015, we received our NATEF Accreditation! Fewer than 3,000 schools in the country qualify for NATEF Accreditation. What does this mean for our students? Our Automotive Technician Training Program meets or exceeds the Standards set by the Automotive Industry. This accreditation is reviewed every two and a half years and renewed every five years. The logo says it all – NATEF Accreditation is the key to opening doors for our students to succeed in their automotive careers!
Ben Starcheski graduated on June 12, 2015 and started full time employment at Faulkner Buick/GMC of West Chester the very next day. Ben had been working part-time in the mornings at Faulkner’s a few weeks after he started his Program with TATI. He is the best example of how we envision our Program to work. Maintenance and Light Repair, Safety Inspection, Emission Inspection, Brakes, Steering and Suspension, etc… with every task he learned and performed his salary increased as his ability to do more increased. Ben applied himself in every area of automotive service; soft skills, attitude and perseverance and even received his first ASE Certification in Brakes. We are proud of you Ben. Best of everything as you start your automotive career.
We are happy to announce that Brett Compton is now working at Stillman Volvo. Brett came to us when he realized that his life’s passion was cars, learning how they work and how to fix them when they didn’t. Brett was our “non-traditional” student. He did not attend a vocational technical high school but came to us after some college. In our Technician Training Program he quickly learned the skills he needed to secure part time work at MacLaren while he was going to school and now he is full time at Stillman Volvo. Congratulations Brett! Stillman Volvo, who just underwent a complete remodel, the facility looks magnificant! Best of luck and continued success to Brett and Stillman.
Your first impression of our student Brett Compton might be that he is quiet or shy. There was nothing quiet or shy about the way he supported the walkers in the Susan B. Komen 3 Day, 60 mile walk. Brett decorated his truck with a bunch of #60s and encouraged the walkers to cross the number off as they completed the 60 miles. He drove around the course encouraging the walkers to keep going. They saw him so much they affectionately, called him the “Walker Stalker”. Thanks for showing your support, Brett and reminding us that cancer effects all of us!
