The new learning management system provides repairers with everything they need to take advantage of one of the largest technical and training resources in the independent aftermarket.
From the new Auto Education Academy website, repairers can login to their own skills portal to view the content of more than 75 different courses, registering and booking their place on training workshops all over the country, at the click of a button.
Unique to the resource is a new skills overview, which enables repairers to assess their strengths and weaknesses across nine key areas; petrol engines, diesel engines, engine management and emissions, vehicle electronics, hybrid and electrical cars, brakes, powertrain, tyres, steering and suspension and air-conditioning.
Results are automatically added to an interactive skills diagram, illustrating a repairer’s current skillset and enabling them to set their own training and development targets.
Where gaps exist, the learning management system intuitively recommends Auto Education courses that can help increase knowledge in certain areas.
Anybody can access and complete the skills overview, making the tool particularly useful for workshop owners and managers who want to monitor the skillsets of employees.
The new platform can also be used to test the abilities of potential new recruits, so independent repairers can give all employees the technical knowledge and support the need to thrive on the job.
Helen Robinson, marketing director at Euro Car Parts, said: “The new Auto Education Academy website and learning portal is the result of recent investment into the training provision offered by Euro Car Parts and Andrew Page.
“We want to make it easy for repairers to analyse their existing skillsets and identify further areas of development.
“Our new system allows repairers to do all of this in one place, enabling Euro Car Parts to work more closely with our garage network to develop the technicians of the future.”
