Richmond Hill, Ontario -- October 3, 2017 -- Aluminum is showing up in more and more automobiles, and technicians must be prepared to deal with it. That was part of the impetus behind a recent training event put on by BETAG Innovations and Flat Line SSI. Ralph Meichtry of BETAG and Flat Line SSI staff welcomed technicians from CSN Heartland B & B Collision Centre and Pfaff Autoworks to Flat Line’s training centre in Richmond Hill for a training session on aluminum and steel repair.
The training session aimed to provide valuable skills and techniques for both estimators and technicians, helping them improve the overall quality of repairs, increase productivity as well as reduce cycle times.
The courses also aim to be as relevant and practical as possible. They are delivered by experienced technicians and qualified trainers. According to BETAG Innovations, teams should return to work confident with their new skills and ready to add immediate value by increasing their workshop productivity.
“At Flat Line, we want to provide educational opportunities so the technicians, managers and owners can be efficient and profitable,” said Chad Baltzer, Product Manager for BETAG Innovation at Flat Line SSI.
BETAG and Flat Line are also teaming up to offer more training in November 2017. All classes will be held at Flat Line’s training centre in Richmond Hill.
A total of four courses are being offered. All courses are one day in length.
