Further developing the skills of your staff is important. Investing in the future of your less experienced staff members is even more imperative. This year the Congress of Automotive Service and Repair (CARS) will be held July 30 to Aug. 2 in Detroit, and included in the lineup of events is an opportunity for technicians who are new to the industry to expand their knowledge base.
The Young Technician’s Symposium will focus on technicians who have two to three years of experience. Bosch trainers will use hands-on instruction to further develop young technicians’ skills from maintenance and light repairs to electrical and drivability diagnosis.
“The ultimate goal is giving young technicians a game plan that will allow them to continue learning once they are back in the repair shop,” said Bob Pattengale, training manager for Bosch.
Students will receive pre and post tests. All students who pass will receive a certificate from Bosch. Part one of the Young Technician’s Symposium will be presented from 9 a.m. to noon on Aug. 1. Part two will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on that same day. Part three is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 2, and part four will be held from 12:30 to 3:30 pm. that afternoon.
