ZF Aftermarket is set to illustrate how it delivers cutting edge technical training to the independent aftermarket (IAM) through its ZF [pro]Tech garage workshop concept at Autoinform Live in Wolverhampton.
Visitors to the show will have the opportunity to talk to ZF representatives about membership benefits and can book a place on one of its two interactive condensed training courses: ZF High Voltage Training & Introduction to the ZF 9HP Transmission System which will be repeated throughout the event.
Wayne McCluskey, technical training manager, ZF Aftermarket explained: “Technical training and its importance will form an even bigger part of our business strategy this year. For anyone working within the parameters of the independent aftermarket, this is a matter which needs to be prioritised.
“We applaud events such as this as they allow the market to demonstrate the OE quality, training, technical information and support available across the sector.”
Repeated throughout the event will be two training courses: ZF High Voltage Training & Introduction to the ZF 9HP Transmission System. Capturing the main topics covered in the full course agendas and featuring hands on demonstrations, these will give delegates a taste of the many IMI accredited courses the organisation offers annually to members of its ZF [pro]Tech garage workshop concept.
Wayne added: “Vehicle Manufacturers (VMs) are producing more electric vehicles, which will soon enter the aftermarket supply chain. Furthermore, future licensing regulations governing the servicing of these vehicles is a real possibility. Those attending the bespoke ZF High Voltage Training course will gain a valuable insight into these systems.
“In addition, those attending Introduction to the ZF 9HP transmission course will witness Live demonstrations to understand how this compact design, which weighs 7.5kg less and offers a 16 per cent fuel reduction than the outgoing six speed transmission, works on a practical level.”
Backed by the Original Equipment Suppliers Aftermarket Association (OESAA) and in association with ADS, the leading automotive training provider founded by Frank Massey, Autoinform Live will take place on April 25-26 at the GTG, Wolverhampton.
