GS Yuasa Academy, the revolutionary online battery training platform launched earlier this year has proven to be a success with thousands of learners now receiving industry leading battery training through their device. Featuring over 20 certified courses tailored to different job roles, the academy is proving to be a hit with technicians, distributors and educational institutes alike.
GS Yuasa Academy is the first system of its type for comprehensive online battery training. Aimed at improving customer service, reducing warranty returns and maximising battery business potential, each course on the academy is broken down into easy-to-follow, bite-sized modules with downloadable completion certification. Course topics range from ‘Correct Application & Technology’ to ‘Battery Testing & Warranty Handling’.
Jon Pritchard, General Sales and Marketing Manager at GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK, said: “We are delighted to have so many people now receiving high quality learning online through GS Yuasa Academy. We received a fantastic reaction to GS Yuasa Academy when we launched the online learning platform, and the response has been consistently positive ever since!
“An understanding of batteries is essential for anyone who is dealing with batteries in a professional context, be that fitting or sales. Through GS Yuasa Academy’s engaging content, we hope to deliver essential battery training in as an accessible way as possible – fulfilling an industry-wide need for more automotive training and development.”
Designed for both individual learners and organisations, GS Yuasa Academy provides valuable knowledge and skills. The courses feature useful support material and a downloadable certificate upon completion.
Ian Newham, Training Manager at GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK, and one of the presenters of the academy, said “With a dedicated team of specialist engineers and technicians, GS Yuasa has long been renowned for its excellent customer support and technical training.
We’ve had tonnes of great feedback from a wide range of users. Workshops, technicians and garages are all getting behind the GS Yuasa Academy. They love the comprehensive training courses and animated video content. The fact that users can simply leave the site and then pick up where they left off is a real bonus for technicians and workshop owners with a busy work schedule.
We already had an extensive training programme in place, but GS Yuasa Academy offers industry leading training to as many workshops as possible.”
In addition to courses in a dynamic, video-based format, GS Yuasa Academy provides various multiple-choice tests along the way. Individuals can both reflect on learning and check their understanding as they progress.
This type of assessment, along with the ability to unlock special team leader features, means the academy is particularly useful for large distributors, motor factors and colleges. GS Yuasa Academy allows organisations to easily manage and monitor the learning of users through additional business functionality, including a bulk team upload, progress dashboards, downloadable reports and specific learning paths.
As market leader in the UK for automotive, industrial and motorcycle batteries, GS Yuasa is proud to have introduced the original and only complete battery training solution to the market. GS Yuasa Academy will help increase sales, reduce warranty claims, save money, highlight upselling opportunities and ensure batteries leave the shelf in the best possible condition.
