Operating Practices

The Auto Hobby Shop is not to be confused with repair shops operated as revenue-producing activities by AAFES.

Use of shop equipment is by authorized shop personnel and trained customers only. All users must know how to safely operate equipment, what hazards exist, and what protective equipment they need and how to use it. In order to work in the shop, you must first get certification or recertification if needed. Certification is needed to understand shop policies and demonstrate safe operation of equipment. Please call (801)777-3476 for more information.

Please Note: Certification is valid for one year and generally takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete. Tire change qualification may take up to one hour.
