The AAPEX Repair Shop HQ Online Training Series finishes up in September with two free sessions: “Navigating the Rapids Ahead” on Wednesday, Sept. 7, and “Underhood: Stop/Start System Diagnostics,” on Monday, Sept. 19.
In “Navigating the Rapids Ahead,” attendees will learn how to be prepared to weather any storms on the horizon, even though the typical repair shop today is busier than ever. It will address what happens when the going gets rough and include real stories from shops who will share “just in case” safety briefings.
The training session, “Underhood: Stop/Start System Diagnostics,” will cover how to cure issues with stop/start systems, including stop/start system deactivation, replacement batteries, HVAC complaints, transmission harsh shifts, and brake pedal issues.
The 45-minute sessions begin at 2 p.m. EDT.
To attend, shop personnel should register at AAPEX.com/webinar. All sessions are recorded and available to anyone who registers, including those unable to attend.
As a thank you for attending, 50 randomly-selected attendees will receive a $10 Amazon gift card (see full sweepstakes rules).
