Straightset equips new technical training academy for Kia

Straightset is highlighting its part in the opening of a new training centre customised by its specialist team.

Kia UK chose Straightset to design, equip and install the new workshop, working in conjunction with Parogon Contracts to offer a new training facility to provide a home for the next generation of Kia apprenticeship and dealer training programmes.

Kia will use the training centre to adopt a blended learning approach that integrates the latest digital tools and hands-on experience.

Straightset designed the training centre exclusively for Kia UK to provide quality and pioneering technical training to the next generation of automotive professionals.

Having recently launched its own training centre at its headquarters in Worksop, Straightset was uniquely placed to advise on training environment needs and to ensure the design of an optimum space for students and educators.

The workshop was fitted out with the latest vehicle lifts from SPACE, plus the latest two-post lifts specifically designed for electric vehicles, future-proofing the workshop for Kia vehicles.

The training workshop incorporates

  • Bespoke workbench solutions complete with Bahco tooling arranged in foam inlays.
  • HPA-Faip tyre and workshop equipment.
  • The latest Q Lign wheel alignment system from Beissbarth.
  • Integrated air, water and lubrication services.

Andrew Bates, sales director at Straightset, said: “We were delighted to be appointed to work on the creation of Kia’s new Training Academy which allowed us to demonstrate our expertise in garage design and fit-out for a training environment.

“The recent opening and success of our own training centre highlights the increasing investment companies are making in developing and training their staff.”
