Techs going back to basics on training says Delphi

Technicians undertaking training through 2023 were looking to get back to basics according to Delphi, with training on topics like wheels and tyres, braking systems, steering and suspension and four-wheel alignment in high demand, with garages looking to plug skills gaps due to the recruitment crisis being the likely cause.

Luke Garratt, UK and Nordics Technical Services Manager at Delphi, commented:  “We had a rise in EV training demand, as we had anticipated,” said “However, we saw a much more dramatic increase in people going back to ‘grassroots’ training.”

“For many garages now, that really experienced member of the team in the workshop, that would help everyone and offer their advice or opinion, just isn’t there anymore. This means the only option is to get people on board and then train them on the basics.”

Luke noted that Delphi has also seen high demand for its How To videos available to garages free of charge within the Masters of Motion hub. Luke added: “We have seen an increase in demand for vehicle technical information and our e-learning Academy too because people need to have that technical guidance when working with modern vehicles.”
