LKQ Euro Car Parts has announced the launch of LKQ Academy, a new and improved training platform for independent garage customers.
A combination of practical and online courses to suit any level of experience are available, along with 10 free of charge skills tests, which technicians can use to assess their knowledge and build a bespoke training plan to support their development.
Existing users of the outgoing AutoEducation Academy can log into the new LKQ Academy website with their current account details – memberships and prices are unchanged.
Adam White, Workshop Solutions Director at LKQ Euro Car Parts, said: “Learning and development is vital to ensuring garages can keep up – and those that make the move first have an exciting opportunity to get ahead and enjoy a competitive advantage locally.”
LKQ Euro Car Parts is on track to have trained more than 1,500 technicians in hybrid and EV repair this year. Courses are available at levels two, three and four, and all are part of the IMI’s
Tech Safe Scheme. Other popular course areas include advanced diagnostics, braking, engine management and supporting the front of house teams with customer service courses, such as customer management, social media training and marketing.
Signing up for LKQ Academy is free. Courses can be completed and paid for on a one-off basis, or unlimited access with a 12-month gold membership costs £1,499. Courses are fully accredited by the IMI and City & Guilds.
