Autotech Recruit launches free virtual training platform for its technicians

By autotech-nic on May 8, 2020

Surveying its network of over 450 temporary vehicle technicians and MOT testers during the unprecedented lockdown, Autotech Recruit has responded to calls for greater training by launching its own platform on Our Virtual Academy – enabling contractors to access free training.

The move underpins Autotech Recruit’s objective to make all contractors fully conversant in electric & hybrid vehicles by the end of 2020.

Following the survey results, which saw 60% say they would like to undertake further training, Autotech Recruit has invested in the site and developed an exclusive platform with Our Virtual Academy. With access to 180 online training chapters, tutorials and final tests, contractors can maximise the current enforced downtime to upskill.

With over 70% of technicians seeking employment through Autotech Recruit citing lack of progression as the overriding factor for them wanting to move on, the company has always been an advocate for lifelong learning within the industry.

“While supporting the industry as a whole with training provisions, we have used this lockdown period to speak to our contractors and understand what they are looking for to take their careers to the next level.” Comments Simon King, Managing Director of Autotech Recruit.

“With training factoring highly amongst them, we have brought forward plans to create a training platform and worked with Our Virtual Academy to launch our own online provision which is immediately available to our contractors.”

Alongside Electric and Hybrid vehicle training, Autotech Recruit contractors will also gain access to a vast array of nationally recognised training content such as emissions, diesel diagnostics and air conditioning servicing.

Autotech Training’s exclusive platform offers 180 online training courses on a range of automotive systems, including electric and hybrid cars
