Resources to Train Automotive Professionals
July 24, 2020 /
Once you've purchased BOLT ON TECHNOLOGY software for your shop, the next step is to further train your automotive professionals. Becoming familiar with the ins and outs of your new software and continuing to learn the best ways to achieve the goals you've set should be your focus in the upcoming months. In order to make this process easier, our team has a helpful collection of resources available for online automotive technology training.
On our website as well as our YouTube page, we have The BOLT ON Effect, an ever-growing series of educational videos. Each week our team covers a key aspect of our software and delves a little deeper into the ways in which you can implement automotive repair technology easily into your daily operations.
In addition, every two weeks our team hosts AutoMotivated, a livestream on our Facebook page. We discuss everything from best practices to common concerns. We believe in practicing what we preach. Much like how digital vehicle inspections allow shops to show the 'why' and 'how' behind services, our team takes a similar approach for our own customers. Helping shops learn and perfect our software is always a top priority, but we also aim to provide information and guidance that goes beyond the technical. You can access both of these series directly from our website.
Be sure to take advantage of our Live Webinar Training program, which is included FREE with your service. We have two classes available, one that covers Pro Pack, and one that covers Mobile Manager Pro.

Even with all these resources, we've found that nothing compares to in-person instruction. This is why we began offering BOLT ON University classes for owners and employees.
