Featuring both Yuasa and GS battery brands, the GS Yuasa Academy offers comprehensive online battery training, aimed at improving customer service, reducing warranty returns and maximising battery business potential.
It provides over 20 certified courses tailored to different job roles and recently became the first battery training program to partner with The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI). The online learning platform will give users who have completed all courses the opportunity to become a fully-fledged member of the IMI.
Designed for individuals and organisations alike, GS Yuasa Academy provides valuable knowledge and skills. Training content is delivered in dynamic video format and courses feature downloadable support material.
GS Yuasa have identified individualised learning programmes, tailored to specific job roles within the industry. Each course module only takes a few minutes to complete and users can leave the site and return to pick up where they left off at any time.
With engaging presenters and clear graphics to aid learning, GS Yuasa Academy will also explain GS Yuasa’s market-leading product ranges – including their key features and benefits, manufacturing processes, information on labelling specification and what sets these ranges apart from competitors.
There are various multiple-choice tests along the way, so individuals can reflect on learning and check their understanding as they progress. Upon completion of each course, a downloadable certificate will be achieved and should be printed as proof of certification in this area.
GS Yuasa Academy is also designed with large distributors, retailers, motor factors and other organisations in mind. The system helps organisations maximise business potential by managing and monitoring the learning of teams of any size. It can be customised to business requirements with easy-to-use team leader features, including a bulk team upload, progress dashboards, downloadable reports and specific learning paths.
Jon Pritchard, general sales and marketing manager at GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK, said: “The reaction to GS Yuasa Academy has been fantastic. Our customers have been impressed with the wide range of courses on offer, how these battery related topics are broken down into easy-to-follow, bite sized modules, and how upon completion of each course a downloadable certificate is achieved.
“An understanding of batteries is essential for all technicians to ensure that batteries are stored, applicated and fitted correctly. We already had a comprehensive training programme in place, but GS Yuasa Academy offers industry leading training to as many workshops as possible.”
