VARTA integrates E-Learning into Partner Portal

VARTA has announced that a new suite of Battery E-Learning is now live in the VARTA Partner Portal which will complement the company’s more traditional face-to-face training. 

The various E-Learning courses will complete the digital knowledge portfolio, following the VARTA  YouTube-channel’s educational playlists, technical articles in the Battery World, our Battery Finder and other social media platforms.

The company’s goal is to always provide the best user experience during its training, both online and offline. 

Ulrich German, Training & Technical Support Manager at the VARTA Training Academy, said,  “Our E-Learning offerings are aimed at everyone who deals with batteries in their daily business. We want technicians and sales advisors, wholesalers and retailers to be able to understand the new technologies and today’s complex vehicles. We want to share our profound knowledge in a user-centric approach so that our customers can be successful in their daily business.”

The first technology advancements around the battery came with the introduction of start-stop systems. Since then, fuel-saving functions go far beyond simply switching off the engine at traffic lights, with many standard features that are not even noticeable by the driver. For workshops to be able to repair these complex systems in the future, VARTA will continually update the training modules to ensure technicians are prepared. 

In addition to general topics such as Warehousing and Storage, there is also more in-depth technical material such as “Vibration Resistance” or “Deep Cycling Capabilities”. The next technological leap is already underway, as the role of the traditional 12V battery is more important than ever for hybrid and even pure electric vehicles. Additionally, with the latest developments in EFB and AGM batteries for heavy commercial vehicles, the technological landscape has become as complex as that of passenger cars, so well-educated employees become more and more important for a successful business.

After a successful launch, a new series on the topic of drivetrain electrification and the role of the 12V battery in electric vehicles is already in development.

VARTA E-Learning courses are currently available within the VARTA Partner Portal. Registered users get access to a complete offering of digital trainings on:

Basic battery knowledge
Advanced passenger cars
Heavy commercial vehicles

John Rawlins, Marketing Manager UK & Ireland, commented, “We are very pleased to be able to support the Irish and UK aftermarkets with these free-to-access E-learning courses, and hope that technicians and factor staff find them useful and informative. “Our intention is to provide bitesize online training to complement the face-to-face training we already provide.”
