AIR CONDITIONING  PRODUCTS  GROUP


TRAINING STATEMENT and
QUESTIONNAIRE

         Experience teaches slowly, and at the cost of mistakes

In most cases we have found there is a lack of vehicle Air Conditioning knowledge in all departments of garages, body shops, Agricultural repairers, Plant maintenance companies, Auto electricians and Commercial vehicle repairers. We are here to help and can train staff regarding Vehicle Air Conditioning.
Itís not your fault or your staffs. Where do you get such training? Will it be cost affective and worthwhile. I donít know much about vehicle A/C so why should my staff? Ignorance is no defence when things have gone wrong or you have not capitalized on the profit potential of vehicle A/C.

 

RECEPTION: If you have a reception it is the most important part of any garage or body shop. 
It is where business is won or lost. Your whole repeat business cycle depends on your reception and its staff.
Reception staff need to understand A/C terminology to converse proficiently with clients, suppliers and other members of staff. 
They require a basic knowledge of the 2 A/C systems, how they work and their components. 
The ability to identify components and associated parts and consumables to carry out work on A/C systems and quote accordingly is essential to avoid loss of revenue or profit in a given job. 
A basic understanding of what is involved when servicing and repairing vehicle A/C will help communications between workshop and clients.
 Knowledge of the COSHH regulations appertaining to A/C refrigerants and oils, the EPA ACT 1990 and retrofit options will also help them advise clients on there options when presented with a quote for repair.
 A knowledgeable receptionist will not need to keep dragging the foreman, technician or service manager from what ever they are doing to explain to customer what ever needs explaining saving invaluable non-productive time.

 

PARTS: If you have a parts department you would be amazed at the long-winded conversations we have with parts personnel. With the understanding of the above their working time would be so much more productive extra sales could be generated and wrong ordered parts could be minimized leading to an increase in profit.

 

 

 

OWNERS, GENERAL MANAGERS AND MANAGERS: All the above can be learnt so you can evaluate whether your departments are working efficiently and correctly and how best to implement youíre A/C strategy. You will also be able to assess equipment requirements and costs. 
It is our belief that every garage, body shop, Agricultural, Plant, Auto electrical and Commercial vehicle repairers  will be carrying out vehicle A/C service and repairs and those that start early and  correctly  will only go from strength to strength.

 

WORKSHOPS: If you are already servicing and repairing vehicle A/C you or your staff wont need training?
Or will you / they?
Try answering our questionnaire. Print it, fill it in and fax or post it to us and we will check answers for you and send it back. GOOD LUCK. Donít forget to give us your details and contact noís so we can send it back.

Whether you are just thinking about setting up or have been carrying out vehicle A/C repairs we are certain you will be astounded by how much you will learn on the City & Guilds 6048,  Vehicle Air Conditioning Introduction and the CITB Safe Handling of Refrigerants course.

 

Should you have any questions regarding training please do not hesitate to contact us. You can phone, fax or email the choice is yours
