CoolDrive Auto Parts continues to build upon its reputation as a trusted partner to automotive workshops, following the success of its Specialised Training Event.
At May’s Bathurst 12 Hour, CoolDrive hosted a training event for workshop technicians and owners, providing attendees the opportunity to hone their skills and lear new vehicle system technology from the industry’s leading trainers and experts.
Across three days, attendees underwent seven training courses with ‘future-focused’ topics, – DPF Diagnostics, CAN BUS Diagnostics, Modern EV Servicing, AC Diagnostics, Engine Management Sensor Diagnostic Training, EV Accessory fitment and Diagnosing Smart Charging Systems – not to mention they also experienced the best racing action and hospitality Mount Panorama had to offer.
“The Bathurst 12 Hour Specialised Training Event was a resounding success this year with positive feedback received from all attendees,” Matthew Douglass, Category Manager – Tools and Equipment at CoolDrive Auto Parts said.
“Participants found the training programs on offer to be incredibly helpful and took away a lot of learnings that can be applied in their day-to-day running of their businesses.
“Hosting it at the Bathurst 12 Hour also made this event unique; with the informative and educational sessions held in and around the surrounds of Australia’s most famous racing circuit, while also seeing some of the fastest and most luxurious GTs in the world.”
The success of 2022’s training event has seen CoolDrive confirm its intent to hold more events at different locations across Australia in the near future.
“Our Specialised Training events cover a wide range of topics, giving attendees the chance to tighten up on their existing skill-sets as well as broaden them with discussions around new technologies, the future of the automotive landscape and how these will affect workshops,” continued Matthew.
“The events are also a networking platform for fellow automotive professionals to connect with one other, to share knowledge, as well as ensuring they remain up to date with new technologies to prepare for the future of the industry.
“Technology is always evolving and CoolDrive wants to ensure it is supporting its valuable workshop partners through regular training sessions, as well as constantly reviewing and expanding our product and service offerings.”
