Join FutureTech's Training Arm Access in Las Vegas During The Week of the SEMA Show for Special Advanced Vehicle Technology Training Events
Las Vegas, NV – Electric, Hybrid, and Fuel Cell Vehicle technology firm FutureTech Auto (FTA) will be conducting two 8-hour training events in Las Vegas, Nevada to coincide with SEMA and AAPEX. These training events are scheduled for October 31st and November 4th focusing on Service Advisors, Electric Drive Systems, High Voltage Battery Installation and, targeted diagnostic processes.
These training events serve as the official kick-off of the Access Brand powered by FutureTech supporting training and education. Access is committed to providing technology and training delivered in a way that is comprehensive and accessible to everyone currently or planning to service vehicles with Electric Drive technologies.
“Access powered by FutureTech has a unique approach”, Says Dr. Mark Quarto, Chief Technical Officer of FTA, “we provide technical training solutions for management, support teams, and technicians”. Dr. Quarto recognizes that the needs of Service Advisors have been overlooked specific to supporting Advanced Vehicle Technologies. “If your business has made an investment in technician related training as well as tools and equipment, now it’s time for your service advisors and managers to receive training on how to interface and sell advanced technology vehicle services to customers that own these cars. NOW is the time to fill that void”.
The Aging process of an Electric Drive System begins with the Battery Pack so “when your customer brings the car in for a perceived high voltage battery problem, why don’t we find out if the battery needs to be serviced at all”, Dr. Quarto states, “and if it does, the Battery Testing and Installation training provides the technician with the skills to confidently do it economically for both the shop and the customer”.
These 8-hour events, which will be held at Frank’s European Service in Las Vegas, are only a preview of what Access has planned for 2017 and beyond. Access brand has management and technician training courses scheduled in key locations throughout the U.S. market. The initial 2017 training schedule will be posted and accepting registrations beginning August 30th, 2016.
“This is about accessibility and ease of application for all global businesses”, says founder Don Burton. “Access and all brands powered by FutureTech are focused on assisting automotive businesses in making their transition into servicing advanced technology vehicles that use electric drive systems”. “FTA’s scalable solutions make it easy and possible for all businesses to enter this growing market” states Mr. Burton.
As an ongoing commitment to the market, FutureTech and Access have made available complimentary webinars each month, cost effective training classes, and varied technical events to support the needs of service and maintenance businesses.
