A must have for every workshopadmin
The launch in April this year of a new technical training product by Australian company AutoMate is about to revolutionise the way workshops view and use training. With the lack of effective and affordable training being one of the major issues facing automotive technicians and workshops, AutoMate has leading industry figures excited by their unique training format.
AutoMate’s General Manager, Jonathan Sampson, is passionate about the industry and training. With over 20 years in the industry he understands the problems faced by workshops trying to cope with rapidly changing technology, the need for training and running a workshop. He is confident that AutoMate’s revolutionary training is what the industry has been waiting for.
Jonathan and his team of technical writers and video production people created a video training system that ticks some big boxes for any workshop that is serious about staying in business. The video content is well produced and learning focussed, with clear learning outcomes identified for each video.
The compact and effective videos had three outstanding features, which were big winners for me. Firstly, each video lasts between 10 to 15 minutes. Even the busiest technicians can access this training. Secondly, this is a living system. Each week you get three new videos available to watch and re-watch as many times as you like. Thirdly, the experienced trainers know how important breadth of training is. Their training categories include diagnostics, wiring diagrams, equipment, as well as fundamentals. There is training here for every technician no matter how old, young or experienced they are.
This is a clever system and is exactly what the industry has been crying out for. And the cost? I am told for an average workshop, the daily cost is less than the coffee I had while I test drove AutoMate on my iPad®. It is impressive.
AutoMate is definitely worth a look.
