University of the Aftermarket, at Northwood University, Midland, Mich., offers continuing education units for those who take part in the 2010 Global Automotive Aftermarket Symposium (GAAS), May 18 and 19 at the Hyatt Regency near Chicago.

Symposium attendees will receive 1.0 CEU toward the University of the Aftermarket’s Automotive Aftermarket Professional (AAP) or Master Automotive Aftermarket Professional (MAAP) designation.

As part of GAAS 2010, University of the Aftermarket’s Leadership 2.0 class will present its class project May 19 at 10 a.m.

“Leadership 2.0 is the aftermarket’s premier executive development experience and a cornerstone of the industry’s efforts to develop the next generation of visionary executives,” said Brian Cruickshank, AAP, director of the University of the Aftermarket. “Our winning team will be selected in early April. This is a great opportunity for these future leaders to present their thoughts at one of the industry’s leading educational events.”
