The International Automotive Technicians
Network (iATN), www.iatn.net, now has more than 80,000 active members, the largest number ever in the
network’s 19-year history. Members are located in 160 countries and
collectively share 1.9 million years of experience on iATN.

“Although we’ve crossed the
80,000-member threshold, iATN members are the minority of the industry: they
are the professionals who understand what it takes to survive in our
increasingly challenging profession. Members here find that by networking with
fellow professionals, they are continuously expanding their knowledge on
systems, tools and best practices that often elevate their careers to the next
level. iATN provides a platform that allows members to communicate with each
other interactively by sharing case studies, solving vehicle problems and
sharing tips that cover the gamut of challenges facing the automotive service
industry,” said Scott Brown, president of iATN.

Technician Thomas Perkins said, “iATN
has shaped my career by giving me the connection to my peers and allowing me to
review case studies. The people connection and the Waveform Library both have
been invaluable.”

The primary membership benefits of iATN
include TechHelp, where thousands of automotive technicians from all over the
world exchange information and ideas 24 hours a day. Members also have access
to more than 20 different technical, shop management and auto industry Web
forums and the extensive iATN Knowledge Base.

The Knowledge Base includes the FIX
Database with more than 200,000 real-world vehicle fixes, Forum Archives with
millions of iATN Web forum discussions, and the Waveform Library with 35,000
waveforms, scan data images, component photos, and other vehicle specific
images, documents and videos that have been uploaded to the network.

“In a very large part, I owe my career
to iATN because without them I probably would have been stuck in some job
without any training or networking. I highly recommend it,” said technician
John Bridgwater.

Automotive educator and technician
Michael Joachim said, “It [iATN] is my window into the world. It’s my way of
finding out what’s going on in shops and service bays all throughout the U.S.
and the world.”
