About ATI

We Care About Your Success

The Automotive Training Institute (ATI) has grown into the leading coaching and consulting automotive management company in the nation, with more than 1,600 active members who represent the best shops in the US and Canada.

Since 1980, we’ve been helping independent auto repair and collision repair shop owners improve their businesses and their lives, with proven, measurable and field-tested strategies and practices. Our performance coaches are direct employees of ATI and are certified by the Center for Executive Coaching. Our motto, Driving Profits and Dreams Home, represents the desire we have for our members to be happy and achieve their goals. Dreams are usually different for each person and at ATI we understand those differences. No matter what type of shop owner you are at this point in your life, we understand you. Join us at one of our shop owner events held each year all over North America and we’ll help you get what you want out of your business.

Our Mission

Driving profits and dreams home for members and associates through honest coaching and integrity.

Re-engineering misguided belief systems by focusing on successes and learning from mistakes.

What our members say...

Ron Peters, Peters Body Shop

“When I was approached by ATI to take a one-day class I thought there would be nothing they could offer that I hadn’t already seen. I attended the class and was impressed by the whole organization from the moment I walked into the front door.”

“My first time learning with ATI has been incredible. I had no idea how many things I had been missing to help our business succeed…I’m already looking forward to the next session of learning.”

“[We have] been with ATI for 5 years. There has been so much we have learned during this time. Our shop has allowed me a very flexible schedule and has become so profitable all at the same time. Thank you ATI. We appreciate all your hard work.”
