Collision Repair Series: Insights on making virtual training a reality

About this event

The 5th webinar in the Automechanika Dubai Collision Repair Webinar Series focuses on different aspects of training. Our panel of experts will analyse where are we with training today and where could we be with virtual training tomorrow. With the evolving technology in the training processes and solutions, the webinar will share insights on how you can manage the changes in the way you do business.

Some of the key topics in focus at the webinar include:

  • What are the key changes in the training world in the last 20 months?
  • How to develop skills that will be needed in the future?
  • New technology in vehicles: How to stay updated?
  • Is technical training enough or should it be a balance of commercial and management training too?
  • What are the key strategies for transitioning into a virtual or hybrid training model?

…and much more.
