IGA to launch diagnostics training later this year

Published 12/06/2013 00:00:00 in Press Releases

The Independent Garage Association (IGA) is set to launch its onsite diagnostic training later this year.

Following on from the success of their hybrid training which has so far seen the IGA deliver free training to over 1,250 technicians at more than 500 individual member garages, they are positioned to launch diagnostics training later in 2013.

The unique model will involve IGA staff visiting garages and training technicians to make the best use of their own equipment in “real world” diagnostic situations on customer’s cars.

IGA Director, Stuart James comments, “Diagnostic equipment can be an expensive piece of kit and our members tell us they are not using the equipment to its full capability when diagnosing faults. The purpose of our diagnostic support training is to ensure that garages have the skills and knowledge to apply logically ordered processes with any make of diagnostic equipment and vehicle to achieve a repair outcome”.

“We were delighted at the feedback we received from the hybrid training and want to enhance our training offer by responding with a product that is in high demand and will greatly benefit our members.”
