Average Number of Technicians at Independent Repair Shops Up According to IMR Repair Shop Tracking Study
The average number of service technicians at independent repair shops was up in 2015, as compared to the same time period in 2014, according to IMR’s Repair Shop Tracking Study. However, the average number of ASE certified technicians remained the same from 2014 to 2015.
“Our Repair Shop Tracking Study shows that although the average number of service technicians per shop fluctuated slightly during the course of 2015, that average did increase from the end of 2014 to the end of 2015,” said Bill Thompson, president and CEO of IMR Inc. “However, the average number of ASE certified shops remained flat from 2014 to 2015. It might be beneficial for shops to increase their number of ASE certified techs, either through hiring or encouraging current employees to get certified as ASE certification is a great marketing tool for shops to use with their customers.”
