CoolDrive Reinforces Commitment to Automotive Workshops with its Technical Training Program
7 Jul, 2023
CoolDrive Auto Parts continues to ensure its workshop partners can be equipped for the future of the industry with the confirmation its Technical Training Program will return in 2023.
Following years of successful partnership, CoolDrive’s Technical Training Program will once again be supported by Bosch Australia, with numerous sessions to be held across the country throughout the year.
“At CoolDrive, we very much understand the challenges facing workshops today when it comes to technical advances within modern vehicles,” said Scott Williamson, General Manager – Training and Development at CoolDrive Auto Parts.
“The importance of training, both staying up to date and upskilling, with ever-changing vehicle technology is vital for workshops to continue and improve their service offerings.
“Our comprehensive training sessions cover a range of topics which workshops in today’s environment face, and ensure attendees are equipped with the necessary knowledge and hands-on experience of new and emerging technologies as well.”
A wide range of categories are covered in this year’s schedule including Electrical & Electronics, Alternative Drives, Gasoline, Chassis & Braking, Diesel, as well as Diagnostics & Test Equipment.
Headlining courses include ‘Electronic Fundamentals & Diagnosis’, ‘Electronic Battery Management’, and ‘Hybrid & Electrical Vehicle Systems’; while for Diesel workshops, courses cover ‘Diesel Exhaust & Emission Systems’ and ‘Common Rail System Diagnosis’. CoolDrive has also recently increased its product and service offerings around vehicle diagnostics and ADAS – both of which are covered in the training program with dedicated courses.
“Alongside these new and emerging technologies, the new ‘right to repair’ legislation is having an impact on the industry and, where relevant, our training courses address this, to ensure workshops continue to have access to the relevant vehicle manufacturer information,” added Scott.
The 2023 Technical Training Program will continue to be taught by CoolDrive’s experienced team which utilises a mix of automotive industry trainers, trade teachers, dealership technicians and partnerships with industry associations.
