HORSHAM, Pa. - May 23, 2016 // PRNewswire // - AAMCO Franchise, the world's largest chain of transmission specialists and leader in total car care, has been named as one of Chief Learning Officer's (CLO) 2016 LearningElite award winners for its comprehensive learning and development program. CLO's LearningElite is a robust, peer-reviewed ranking and benchmarking program that acknowledges organizations employing exemplary workforce development strategies and delivering significant business results.

"We are very honored to be part of such a prestigious ranking and recognized for our contributions to the professional development and training industry," said Brett Ponton, CEO and president of American Driveline and AAMCO Transmission, Inc. "Training continues to be a strong focus for our company and one of the reasons why AAMCO remains at the forefront of the automotive aftermarket industry. As the franchisor, it is our mission to set up our franchise owners and their employees for success by providing the very best training and educational resources, while building and protecting our brand's reputation among current and prospective customers."

As part of the annual ranking, AAMCO was named among more than 70 other national organizations across various industries. The news comes on the heels of the first anniversary of the company's state-of-the-art training facility, AAMCO University. AAMCO's training curriculum includes over 300 comprehensive training courses designed for its franchise owners, customer service managers and technicians.

For over 50 years, AAMCO's locally owned and operated independent service centers have employed the latest technology. Expert technicians diagnose a repair, fix it right the first time, and back it with a nationwide warranty. Known as the world's leading transmission expert, the company has evolved into a total car care brand providing a variety of services including brake repairs, tune-ups, shocks and struts, routine maintenance and more. AAMCO was recently named to Entrepreneur's 2016 Franchise 500®, ranking at the top of the transmission repair category. Based on system size, growth rate and financial strength, the brand also earned a spot on Entrepreneur's "Best of the Best" list.
