About 75 students turned out for LinderTech Training in Toronto last October.
The Spring 2018 Lindertech Training Event is coming to Toronto next month. Shop owners, service advisors, and technicians can take in advanced business and technical training during the event.
The three-day training event will take place April 19-21 and feature sessions on the business side of running a shop and connected/autonomous vehicle technology.
One course will be focused on service advisors called Getting to “Yes” with confidence, led by Rick White. They will learn how to connect with people, learn to identify obstacles that are hindering their business, learn how to use positivity and confidence to gain success, and, lastly, how to overcome objections.
The other discussions will deal with connected vehicles and where the OEM’s are going, led by Donny Seyfer, and cyber security expert, Dr. Anuja Sonalker. Technicians will learn the basis of how to repair and service connected vehicles and gain knowledge on shop specific cyber security measures to protect assets and customers.
David Hobbs will teach sessions for shop owners and technicians on 48-volt systems for today and tomorrow including radar, lidar, lane departure, adaptive cruise, and Mazda compassion ignition.
The last session will focus on “hands on” experience in target calibration, automated driverless systems, GM’s new technology on automated driver assist platform, Canadian Automotive Service Information Standard (CASIS), and the National Automotive Service Task Force. These courses will be taught by Steve Zack (Bosch Instructor), Seyfer, Sonalker, and John Cochrane.
The Lindertech event in Toronto will be held at Hilton Garden Inn 1870 Matheson Blvd., Mississauga and Cochrane Automotive Shop, 73 Chauncey Ave. Toronto M8Z 2Z2.
