Kris Lewis

Kris brings a unique combination of experience to teaching, including “almost everything”. In addition to decades in a shop focusing on drivability and electrical, he worked with an automotive radio program and mentored many technicians through in-shop training before transitioning into local training and a hotline service in the mid-2000’s. In 2011 Kris joined The Automotive Training Group as a part-time trainer, and quickly decided that as a full-time trainer he could pass on his years of experience to more technicians. Since then he has traveled the US and Canada delivering ATG training seminars focusing on practical strategies that he feels are best learned through great interaction with the audience. His enthusiasm isn’t limited to his audience – his mentoring to fellow trainers led to the creation of the position of Director of Training in 2016.
