AAPEX is dedicated to bringing the best talent to the Automotive Aftermarket

As part of this initiative, we are pleased to present opportunities for students and educators to attend the event as well as a chance for aftermarket companies to get involved in the program:


Interested in bringing a student group to AAPEX? Give your students in-person exposure to everything that the industry has to offer by applying to be an approved school. Once approved, instructors will have access to the following:

  • Complimentary AAPEX registration for a student group of up to 15.
  • Access to all AAPEX trainings and general education sessions as well as hosted functions


Must be a school offering automotive-specific educational coursework. Student groups must include an instructor chaperone and all students attending must be 16 years of age by November 4, 2024.

Please note: transportation and hotel will be the responsibility of the instructor.

For more information on becoming an approved school, reach out to either Liz Goad or Jessica Finnerty.
