STAUNTON, Virginia, April 11, 2019 - Bill Prater, owner of Federated Car Care Center Forest Park Auto Repair in Cincinnati, Ohio, was chosen as the winner of the Federated Spring Training contest. Prater received a trip for two to Fort Myers, Florida where Prater attended two days of training courtesy of AVI and an exciting spring training baseball game between the Boston Red Sox and Pittsburgh Pirates.

Prater, a Federated Car Care Center customer of Fisher/KOI Auto Parts, was eligible for the contest by enrolling in The Group Training Academy. In addition, he received an extra entry for taking the online course entitled “7 Ways to Improve Cash Flow and Increase Profit,” presented by acclaimed industry instructor Bill Haas. While attending the AVI Spring Training Conference, Prater received additional technical and management training from industry-leading instructors and had the opportunity to share best practices with other conference attendees.

“We want to congratulate Bill for winning the Federated Spring Training contest. We know he and his wife had a great time in Florida and he was able to expand his professional expertise with the informative training provided by AVI,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president of Federated Auto Parts. “We are very proud that The Group Training Academy has become the premier online training platform designed for professional technicians, shop owners and managers. We plan to provide more fun opportunities to learn for our customers who are enrolled in the academy.”
