AAPEX is now accepting applications for its student program, representatives of the annual trade show announced.
The program offers two options for students to attend this year’s event, as well as an opportunity for aftermarket companies to get involved in the program, according to event officials.
The first option is the Student Sponsorship Program that invites students to apply to attend AAPEX for first-hand industry experience and networking opportunities, the organization said. Students selected for participation will receive two days of learning, including access to all AAPEX training and general education sessions, as well as hosted functions. Participants will receive complimentary AAPEX registration, reception tickets, a three-night hotel stay in Las Vegas, and a food and transportation stipend. Applications are due by Aug. 24.
The Student Groups program is the second option and allows instructors to apply to be an approved school. Once approved, instructors will have access to complimentary AAPEX registration for a student group of up to 15 and access to all of the event’s training and general education sessions, as well as hosted functions, event officials said.
The Sponsor a Student program is for aftermarket companies participating in AAPEX. It offers the opportunity to help shape the careers of students, as well as attract motivated and qualified new talent to work for the sponsoring companies. Students attend Wednesday and Thursday, and will have programming including automotive coursework, as well as time available to dedicate to their sponsors. Sponsoring companies will receive onsite recognition as a program participant. To apply, visit Sponsor a Student. Applications are due by Sept. 30.
