I am interested in attending some of the seminars I see listed at Vision but was hoping to get some insight on what the conference is like overall. I have looked at the website and I still am unsure . The classes look very big, is it possible to ask questions? How many seminars can a person attend over the weekend? It’s a long trip and considerable expense so I would like to be sure it was worth the effort. Thanks in advance for any comments
Eric. you can take as many seminars as you want. Best part is networking with other techs. and yes you can ask questions. you can reach me at … if you have more question about vision.
Youll have to look at the training schedules to determine how many you can attend. Many of them over lap,so you can only attend certain ones If you intend to sit through the whole presentation. I think I took 5 maybe 6 classes between Friday,Saturday and Sunday. There are some East Coast trainers that never make it over here,they are the ones I went to see. Otherwise,we have phenomenal…
Rudy, where have you taken classes in California? I go to the bi-annual CAT (California Auto Teachers) conferences every year here in Cal, but honestly the class sessions are short and I come away unimpressed.

Our local ASCCA also occasionally has trainers scheduled.(Mr. Scott Brown was the last guy I saw that provided some good information) Its more than enough to keep me busy and the information is usually very good.
Eric, I looked up where you school was and looks like you are between San Fran. and LA. My Good friend Rick Escalambre from Skyline college is there EVERY year with a lot of his staff. Also going back a couple of years they started adding specific Training just for the Educators, it is Called "The Think Tank". My self and other will be doing some presentations in that section. It is VERY hard to…
Have you checked with your auto parts supplier I am in Canada and here every year the support a few.
Great training classes. See many people from all over the US. And we even get a tech from overseas that attends Vision every year. You should look into making the trip here to the Midwest.
Anyone THINKING about attending better get registered, They just announced today that the Host hotel is already SOLD OUT. This is one event that you DON'T want to hesitate signing up for.
Thanks for all the helpful replies
