Why We Think ATRA Membership Is Important
Technicians become ATRA-certified by studying and passing ATRA exams in three areas of transmission diagnosis and repair. They must have at least two years of experience in the business and must pledge to follow the ATRA member code of ethics and comply with the "golden rule" warranty. Members receive a great deal of support from ATRA, which they pass on to their customers.
