Mike became an instructor while continuing to develop his knowledge and skills on the shop floor. As a result, unique, proven and unpublished practical shop procedures are Mike’s personal specialty.

Most recently

 In addition to running his own repair business, Mike was the Central/Western Ontario instructor for a large North American Automotive training company delivering training for NAPA, Parts Plus and many others.

Mike has personally developed and implemented a number of highly specialized courses covering R&D, development and presentations.
