About Tuner School
Over the last 10 years, John Hennessey has received thousands of emails from performance enthusiasts from around the world asking the question: Where can I go to learn how to modify cars? And the answer was clear that there just wasn’t a place where people could go and learn the fundamental’s of auto performance tuning. Simply put, the people in the industry who knew how to modify cars either taught themselves or learned by working around others who had the know how. The problem with being self taught is that it’s a long and expensive process of trial and error. And for those who learned from others, it took a long time to gain the knowledge and skills.
John also saw the need to find qualified technicians for Hennessey Performance as it continued to grow. Finding help with the right skill level and work ethic was hard at times. The only other option was taking in young apprentices and training them. The problem with this idea is that in order to train someone that means that one of the techs in the shop would be doing training rather than working on production or R&D projects.
One day John just thought he would start a school dedicated to training enthusiasts with the fundamental skills needed to work in his shop. Thus began Tuner School.
