How to train workshop staff, and keep yourself up-to-date too!

Being a mechanic these days is more challenging than ever. Modern cars are relying more and more on digital technology, and they are increasingly specialized – almost no two cars are built the same way. Modern mechanics need brand-specific, up-to-date information to be effective repairers. This can be difficult to manage for workshop owners and busy mechanics – how do you keep yourself and your staff continually up-to-date? Luckily, there are solutions…

How do you and your staff stay up-to-date?

One of the biggest challenges for modern workshops is how to fit staff training into an already busy schedule. Every day spent training off-site is a day lost in the workshop. But, with constant technological advancements, and an increase in the use of brand-specific, digital technology by car manufacturers, it is becoming more and more important that mechanics are aware of the latest practices and procedures. 

Brand-specific training is becoming so important that different manufacturers are now conducting their own individually tailored training programs. Automotive companies even have their own dedicated training centers to ensure mechanics are well-trained to work on their cars. And these initiatives have worked - graduates from these training programs do learn how to deal with these brand-specific technologies. But what about broader technological improvements that are constantly disrupting the automotive industry? Improvements like autonomous driving and connected vehicles? How do you and your team stay up to date?
