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.
All courses are IMI-approved, and are updated regularly to reflect the latest trends in the independent aftermarket.
Bob Wiffen, Workshop Solutions Director at LKQ Euro Car Parts, said: “Workshops need to evolve and adapt to meet the ever-changing demands of motorists and their vehicles, so it’s important that everyone on the team has affordable access to quality training”.
“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.”
