Northwood University's University of the Aftermarket has announced that Basic and Advanced Aftermarket Data Standards will be offered November 18-20 at the institution's facility in Troy, MI. Participants may take the Basic or Advanced program or both. The program was developed for aftermarket catalog managers and product information professionals seeking to sharpen their knowledge and implementation of industry data standards. The Basic program will be held Nov 18-19, with the one-day advanced session following immediately. This optional day of Advanced training will include a detailed analysis of the ACES reference database design, techniques for converting flat files to XML and proper procedures for managing ACES and PIES file changes from month to month.

Instructors are current and former members of the Technology Standards Committee and principal architects of the ACES and PIES standards.
