Ongoing training is vital for automotive workshops to remain competitive in a rapidly changing repair market.
Because of this, ZF Aftermarket has started 2023 by significantly expanding its training offering.
The company says workshops will now benefit from six new, free online training courses, including a guide to installing air springs and CDC shock absorbers.
Participants on the this course will receive a market overview as well as many tips for fault detection, installation and removal.
In addition, there are two new training courses on transmission technology. One deals with dual clutch transmissions and focusses on the widely used DSG transmissions.
On this course, participants will learn about the structure of the gearbox and the oil requirements as well as the correct oil change procedure.
The second new course on this subject, deals with implementation and wider business potential of oil changes on ZF automatic transmissions.
In view of the changes in the automotive market, the courses on high-voltage technology, driver assistance and safety systems are becoming increasingly important.
ZF says its training programs are not solely aimed at automotive workshops, as members of fire brigades and rescue services receive important and, in extreme cases, life-saving tips for handling electric cars and hybrid vehicles in the online course ’electrified car drives’.
All trainings can be booked on the new ZF [pro]Academy portal – now available at aftermarket.zf.com/training.
