Live VCT combines the best attributes of instructor-based classroom training and online automotive training. Learners have direct access to communicate with the trainer via a message board functionality that is responded to instantly.
AUTOMOTIVE TECHNICIAN TRAINING
Technician proficiency has a significant impact on customer satisfaction and retention. The amount of time they spend in the service bay each day diagnosing and repairing vehicles influences the profitability of dealerships. Today’s quickly evolving automotive market — with increasingly complex technologies and regulations — requires ongoing upgrade of technicians’ knowledge and skills. We train automotive repair personnel to troubleshoot, diagnose and repair the latest vehicle models using instructor-led training with hands-on activities and one-on-one support through assembly line ramp-up.

AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCT LAUNCH TRAINING
The successful launch of a new vehicle is crucial to dealership sales training. Our launch experts develop end-to-end, business-focused training programs that ensure sales teams and technicians are fully prepared to support your sales and customer-support objectives.
Controlled and consistent product launches are increasingly important to succeed in the market and will, to a high degree, determine sales figures. A centralized launch approach, which can reduce costs by up to 30 percent, allows for the implementation of one set of standards and consistent marketing messages across all markets, so that brand loyalty is strengthened and a high quality of training is guaranteed.
We offer a wide array of sales launch services to help you maintain control, reduce costs and create the right emotional bond with the new vehicle.
AUTOMOTIVE SALES TRAINING
It is imperative for today’s retail organizations to maintain quality and consistency in automotive sales programs despite a high turnover rate among sales teams. Our automotive sales experts prepare your sales representatives for a successful sales transaction by developing sales skills, product knowledge and brand loyalty. We know that a successful sales team requires more than training selling skills. They must demonstrate a passion for the brand, reinforcing marketing messages and exhibiting comprehensive product knowledge.
We use a blend of highly targeted and compelling content, training delivery and technology to provide creative auto sales training programs to ensure your consultants become top-producing sales professionals.
