About Us > Workshops
Free Car Care classes:
We offer our clients many opportunities to better understand the vehicles they drive, the common services that these vehicles need, and do it in our repair facility to show you what you should be looking for. We have vehicles in the air, motors and transmissions on rebuild benches, a well put together slideshow presentation and Q&A. If you are interested in learning more, or signing up a group contact us today for additional class dates/times.
1. Group Class: How to choose the right auto repair shop for you:
During this class Owner of A+ Japanese Auto Repair Inc. Eric S. will take you through many of the experiences clients run into when it comes auto repair and service. He can help you to ask the right questions to qualify an auto repair facility for your needs. He will also spend time on common service items and clarify common misconceptions about auto repair and service intervals and factory recommended time and mileage services. There will be a question and answer session that will last as long as is needed to answer every ones questions .
(Eric is on the ASC council (Automotive Service Council) which helps clients find great shops all over California whether they are relocating or just out of town and are having car issue. Eric also works with the B.A.R (Beaureu of Automotive Repair) to help in certain cases by using A+ Japanese Auto Repair as a facility to provide a second opinion or inspections for the Beaureu. )

2. Group Class: Boy Scouts - Automotive Merit Badge
Many of the staff at A+ Japanese Auto Repair were in Scouts. Many of us are Eagle Scouts.

This class and instructors are approved by the Pacific Skyline Council in early 2012. To find more information on what will be covered/required to earn this merit badge visit the Boy Scouts of America - Automotive Maintenance Merit Badge Page
3. Mentor Program - Middle School & High School Mentor Program
A+ Japanese Auto Repair has been offering mentor programs through the local school districts in Belmont, San Carlos, Foster City, Redwood Shores, and San Mateo to students who have interest in the automotive field. We typically set aside time to teach and train the students in all aspects of an independent repair facility. We spend time showing them how the front office staff works with clients and the technical staff to relay the findings to the clients, order parts, work with accounting, and phone skills. The students will also spend time in the back work facility with the Mechanics spending time as an apprentice mechanic learning basic auto repair skills and the progressing. We have two students we have mentored that are now working for us full time. This can be a rewarding field. If you know someone interested in finding out more about auto repair as a carrier please have them contact us via the form below.
