Texas, United States – At the 2022 SEMA Show, Repairify unveiled plans to launch the Repairify Institute in 2023, a technical training program for automotive professionals.
The learning program will be available in Canada, with a French language stream coming later, said the company.
According to a company newsletter, this is the industry’s first course built on adaptive learning, adjusting course material based on the learner’s strengths and weaknesses.
Students can attend various academies to learn about various automotive topics, or receive certification. The program also features a mentorship support program that tracks progress of newly learned skills and a Proof of Skill concept, where students must demonstrate mastery of the skills they’ve learned to perform safe and proper repairs.
The Institute’s physical locations serve as examination and certification hubs for students, and includes classrooms, oral examination areas and shop spaces. The first Center of Excellence, Repairify’s name for these institutions, is slated to open near Dallas in early 2023.
“The Repairify Institute is the embodiment of the Repairify Mission to help automotive repair professionals in their quest to simplify complex repairs,” said Cris Hollingsworth, president of Repairify.
“Not only are we enabling this mission with our patented technology, but we also are building curriculum and courses that help technicians achieve and maintain certification in their desired areas of expertise.”
