‘Platinum’ tier added to LKQ Academy

LKQ expands training programme

A new membership tier has been launched by LKQ Euro Car Parts for its LKQ Academy to help give technicians more flexibility in training.

The ‘Platinum’ tier offers workshop customers access to 20 training days – across 25 locations – and 20 eLearning courses annually. Unlike other programmes offered by the motor factor,  the newcomer has no limit to the number of staff who can be trained.

Resources cover the whole catalogue and  range from technical education to business support and management courses, making it the perfect solution to upskill team members across the entire workshop.

“As well as covering everything technicians need to know for a first-time fix from ADAS to hybrids/EV and everything in between, the business management courses we offer to garages’ support staff are proving increasingly popular”.

“We’re helping independent workshops tighten up their back-office processes, their marketing capabilities and the experience they offer at front-of-house, to ensure they continue to compete with the dealerships.”
