A Look Back: 2018 Management Certification Courses

The Automotive Oil Change Association is dedicated to providing its members with the business tools, resources and education to professionally and successfully deliver convenient automotive oil changes and other preventive maintenance services.

This year, AOCA held two public Management Certification Courses, one in Chicago and the other in Dallas. Over 30 managers attended our Chicago course and over 40 attended our Dallas course. Additionally, we held two private courses. One in Chicago, IL for nearly 20 managers working at Chicagoland Jiffy Lube locations, and one in Grand Rapids, MI for nearly 40 managers with Performance Plus Quick Oil Change. In total, over 100 managers earned the AOCA Certified Manager designation in 2018.



What Participants Are Saying...

"I attended this week's Management Certification Training in Dallas Texas. I cannot thank you enough for hosting this training. This course was absolutely FANTASTIC! The Instructor, Mr. Kevin Davis was probably among the best training instructors I have ever been exposed to.  As a small independent shop owner, it took me two years to save up for the tuition fee and associated cost I knew it would incur as well as getting other arrangements in order to allow me to be away from my business for more than a hour. The experience of this training class,  I would have to say,  was worth every penny and more! THANK YOU AOCA!"

"We sent 4 managers to Dallas and they’re fired up to do an even better than ever job. Owners and managers should all attend this course. Kevin Davis does a great job of getting a lot of material across in a useful form."

 “Overall the course was excellent. The instructor does a fantastic job. He was very engaging and his material was extremely relatable to the everyday battles oil change managers face. I cannot commend him enough for the wonderful job he did.”


 Kevin Davis, who is the owner of Fast Change Lube & Oil and operates 20 locations, led each of these courses thanks to his decades of experience in the industry and his exceptional ability to educate and motivate.


We’d like to thank all of those who participated in our 2018 Management Certification Courses, and we’d especially like to thank Federated Insurance, Phillips 66, and True Brand for making these courses possible through their generous sponsorships.

AOCA will host three public Management Certification Courses in 2019. Stay tuned for details on timing and location. If you have 15 or more individuals you’d like to participate in the course, consider hosting a private course. We provide the instructor, materials, and the exam, and you provide the venue and students. Contact AOCA at (800) 230-0702 or for more information. 

Thank you to our sponsors!
