The Parts Alliance is offering an alternative option for technicians wishing to develop their skills and knowledge during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
They have partnered with specialist online training provider ‘Our Virtual Academy’ to provide customers with the opportunity to train remotely. You can watch the video here.
Customers that register will have access to an ever-growing list of over 175 courses, covering a wide variety of topics including Engine Management (Petrol and Diesel), Hybrid & AV, Air Conditioning and Vehicle Electrics. You can view a full course listing here.
All the courses conclude with a test, enabling users to quickly assess their comprehension of each course. Courses can be revisited as frequently as required, making it easy to brush-up on any areas that need further understanding.
To help those workshop owners that would like prepare for the future, but face lower revenues over the coming weeks, The Parts Alliance has arranged an exclusive reduced price 3-month subscription. There are two levels available, a single user subscription for £85 (excluding VAT) and a multi-user subscription for £115 (excluding VAT) in total.
The multi-user plan is ideal for garage owners that would like to provide training for all their technicians, as it allows up to 5 technicians, including themselves, to be enrolled under the same subscription, with the garage owner having full visibility of how their team are progressing.
“We wanted to provide our customers with an accessible training option during Covid-19, which is why we’ve approached Our Virtual Academy to provide a reduced 3-month subscription plan that’s only available to Parts Alliance customers”, explains Simon Moore, Head of Marketing. “We’re committed to supporting our customers during these challenging times.
“It’s a time of great uncertainty but we do believe some garage technicians will find themselves with more time available to develop their technical knowledge than might be possible when workshops are full.”
Customers interested in subscribing to Our Virtual Academy should contact their nearest Parts Alliance branch.
