With most garages dealing with a surge in business at the moment, the idea of taking time out to engage in training is far from the thoughts of many owners and technicians. The focus is firmly on the present, getting jobs done and cars out. Yes, workshop business may be buoyant at the moment and this is great. But, this won’t always be the way unless garages plan for the future.
The old saying goes that “to fail to plan, is to plan to fail” and in a rapidly changing automotive environment, improved knowledge and training is an essential element of future planning. Indeed there are many compelling reasons why busy garage owners and technicians should consider stepping of the current workshop rollercoaster and take a little time out to assess and improve their knowledge, skills and expertise:
Chasing every last job now will produce only a small short term gain, where as taking time out to train is a major investment in your future that can provide genuine benefits for years to come.
Unless you are aware of developing technology and what is coming down the line, you cannot be prepared for the latest vehicles and systems. This can mean a garage turning away more and more business, because it does not have the knowledge and skills to do the job.
The right training can not only help you plan for the future, but also provide immediate benefits now. Special tips and new techniques can allow a garage to work smarter and not harder and longer, meaning a boost to profits now.
Engaging in training allows you to see different perspectives and talk, not only to experts in their field, but also like-minded garages owners and technicians who are facing similar challenges and frustrations to you.
A weekend of training is not a weekend of work. It can allow you to slow down and relax in a very different environment, while also getting the benefit of the knowledge of some of Europe’s leading automotive trainers.
