I am an ASE Certified Master Technician that has retired and and gotten a part time job. I drive a light duty service truck for a AAA contractor in Virginia. One of the biggest problems I run into is women who have no idea about their cars but really want to learn! Back in the late 60s and early 70s Chrysler had a program called "Women on Wheels" which I taught once a week. I would like to find a lesson plan that I could implement in this area. I have not been able to locate anything on this subject. I have a location (American Legion Post 320, Spotsylvania, Va.), ability and desire to do this but no lesson plan. I do not want to make this a professional course, just basics. Any help you could give me would be appreciated! Thanks Craig

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Craig, This is what my business does...teaches women basic maintenance. Take a look at my website for some ideas. I don't really have a lesson plan. I've been doing this for many years and I just sat down and figured out what the best things would be to teach. My classes run 2 hours and it's hands-on. I try to keep the class to 15-20 women so that everyone gets to "touch" the vehicle. I too am a certified tech and have been in the business for over 20 years. Good luck. Lori Johnson
