The objective of the Advanced Mechanical Training Program (AMTP) was to demonstrate the value of blue-collar training received by mechanics in automotive welding techniques, coach electrical systems and coach air-conditioning. A related objective was to develop a series of tests which could be used to evaluate the success of the training program as well as identify other areas of mechanical knowledge in which the average mechanic could benefit from training. By improving the mechanics skills, it was also felt that maintenance efficiency and productivity would increase, resulting in more reliable service to the public.
