The AED Foundation Needs Your Support!

In both good and challenging economic times, The AED Foundation’s core mission is to address the equipment industry’s technician shortage and increase the performance of equipment distributor operations. The AED Foundation facilitates the influx of technicians through encouraging continuous learning, providing educational opportunities for equipment industry employees, and improving the availability of qualified equipment technicians to ensure the stability and success of distributor operations in the future.

The AED Foundation has continued to focus on its mission by offering numerous complimentary webinars on timely issues, continuing to expand its accredited and recognized school network, expanding e-learning opportunities, developing a new user-friendly dealer learning center, and releasing an industry-specific commissioned research report which estimates that the industry will need to fill up to 75,000 technician positions over the next five years.

As we move forward, more than ever, we need your support to continue the many efforts of The AED Foundation.
