Technicians tune in to REPXPERT ‘Tea-Break Training’
Tuesday, January 19, 2021
Schaeffler’s REPXPERT technical training team has kicked off 2021 with its latest online training module, entitled ‘What’s Hot in Cooling’.
Following the now tried and tested format of a short presentation followed by a Q&A session, attendees were first introduced to the technical team before a comprehensive overview of water pump and coolant technology. This was followed by plenty of best practice advice, including the essential tools needed when carrying out cooling system checks or repairs. Lively Q&A closed each session, which together attracted over 250 attendees.
“It was obvious from when we touched on the subject during the first event in December, that cooling was an area that was going to prove popular,” said Schaeffler Technical Manager and REPXPERT, Alistair Mason, “but the overall numbers exceeded even our expectations. It takes a great deal of time and effort by the REPXPERT team to pull these sessions together, from those presenting and those researching the subjects, as well as our digital team that ensures attendees are invited and can access via Zoom. It was great to see the appetite for high quality training is as strong as ever and that the feedback we receive is so positive.”
The next cooling related module is ‘Switch on the Heat’, is to be held on Tuesday 9th February at 12:30 and Wednesday 10th February at 12:30 & 18:30. This will be followed by module three ‘Managing the Heat’, on Tuesday 16th March at 12:30 and Wednesday 17th March at 12:30 & 18:30.
Supplementing the cooling programme, the REPXPERT team is also addressing the vital subject of clutch technology, with a focus on Dual Mass Flywheels, with three modules also running in January, February and March respectively. Module one ‘Movin’ with the Times’, will take place on Tuesday 26th January at 12:30 and Wednesday 27th at 12:30 & 18:30, module two ‘Customer Challenges’ on Tuesday 23rd February and Wednesday 24th at 12:30 & 18:30 and finally, module three ‘Technology on the Horizon’ on Tuesday 30th March at 12:30 and Wednesday 31st at 12:30 & 18:30.
