The Advisory Committee is one of the most important parts of a successful automotive training program.  NATEF accreditation requires a program hold 2 Advisory Committee meetings per year.  Minutes of those meetings need to be available for review during the on-site visit, and will need to be included with the 2 1/2 year compliance review. 

The documents below are designed to help you put together an effective Advisory Committee as well as provide a suggested format for your Advisory Committee minutes.   Please feel free to download and share these documents.
