Transmission Brotherhood HANDS-ON Training

Main Content


Full refunds will be processed when our office reopens.

Join us June 4-7, 2020 for this educational hands-on training!

This 3-day hands-on training event breaks the typical "seminar-based" mold found in transmission education.  In these workshops, attendees will interact with the instructor and their fellow peers as they learn new transmission and torque converter technology, rebuilding methods, and advanced diagnostics.

Most of us are visual, hands-on type learners, and that is the focus of this training event.  With each class, attendees will actually work on transmissions and vehicles, not just watch an instructor perform demonstrations.  For this reason, class sizes are limited to ensure that each attendee gains hands-on experience while working with 60+ transmission units and over 100 vehicles.
