Meridian Technology Center’s Auto-motive Technology program was recognized as a top 10 school for usage of S/P2, an online student training program for safety and pollution prevention.

“S/P2 is an online computer training program with the curriculum built inside it,” said Shelly Smith, an Automotive Technology instructor for Meridian Technology Center. “This program is a benefit to students because it allows them to do safety training online, and today’s student would rather do it online. The program just gives students some flexibility.”

The award was presented to Smith and fellow Automotive Technology instructor David Shields at the Automotive Youth Educational Systems Instructor Training conference in Dearborn, Mich. Meridian Technology Center is a certified AYES school and is the only school from Oklahoma to be recognized with the S/P2 honor.

Before students begin working on automobiles, they must go through safety training, using both online and hands-on training.

The goal of S/P2 is to train workers and students involved in automotive repair on safety and pollution prevention issues, which will reduce injury, illness and environmental impact.

The program focuses on mechanical safety, mechanical pollution prevention and hazardous materials training for automobiles, but there is a wide spectrum of topics covered in the program.
