Default Any Mechanics looking for a long weekend of technical training/workshops

I went to this last year for the first time and they have some very informative classes.
The teachers are very smart/knowledgable and the Mechanics taking the classes are great.
There held at Wyotech in Daytona FL Jan. 14-18th 2010.
Im going down again for some more classes. Figure I would pass the info on in case anybody is looking to learn some knowledge.

Heres a link to Amtech's training workshops this coming January.
Let me know if you have any questions or if your going to take some classes there.
Scroll down for workshops/classes.

I figured I would not get many responses but nothing!
I will bump it in case anybody wants to learn how to troubleshoot or other classes over a weekend.
And no I get nothing for promoting this.

Yea I wish they were doing a Alpha/bravo drive class this year.
They are doing a Borg Warner transmission rebuild class, I heard this was good from the guys that took it last year.
The great thing about the classes is you learn alot in the short period of time.
I see your from Cleveland, Do you dock around here?

I took a MAJOR course in rebuilding an engine at the School of Hard Knocks. If they have any vidoes and stuff I'd be interested in those!

Im not a marine mechanic by trade, i actually work for a school system as a bus/fleet mechanic, i worked for gm dealers for 6 years and escaped just before it all went to hell. I just would like to take the classes for my own personal knowlage as im sure ill blow one up soon!

I don't have anything official yet. Just do it on the side. Might open a shop up next year.

not a bad plan just need the economy to come back around here a bit, it was ruff in the auto dealer world i can only imagine the marine industry. Let me know if you do start up anything and are looking for help.
