Effective Training Increases Profitability...

...And Benefits Everyone In The Repair Process

TRAINING OVERVIEW

Effective technical training for a new generation of collision repair estimators & technicians.

As vehicle technology and the materials used for manufacturing cars continues to rapidly evolve, it has never been more important for collision repairers to focus on developing the knowledge, skills and performance of their people to stay ahead.

To ensure safe and proper repairs, carried out in accordance with OEM specifications, estimators and technicians must be able to understand and carry out detailed repair instructions and procedures.

BETAG’s training and equipment program focuses on this – delivering tangible benefits to vehicle owners, collision repairers, insurers and OEMs.

Watch this clip featuring BETAG on "Innovations with Ed Begley Jr", which was broadcast on Fox Business, in 2019, to find out how BETAG is driving the new performance standard for collision repair estimators and technicians.



Courses are now available at 22 regional training centers across the USA and Canada. Click on the map below to find upcoming classes in your region or click here to find an eLearning course.

BUSINESS BENEFITS

Training is often only viewed as an expensive compliance requirement - that negatively impacts productivity and burdens body shops with additional cost.

This misses the measurable performance improvements and positive impact developing the knowledge & skills of estimators and technicians has on bottom line performance, including:

  • Increasing productivity of less experienced technicians – to improve average labor gross margin; and address shortage of skilled technicians
  • Improving repair/replace ratio - to increase gross profit and bottom line performance
  • Improving overall quality of repairs and reducing re-works
  • Increasing ‘Touch Time’ and reducing ‘Key to Key’ times
  • Utilizing ROI from improving the non-structural repair process to invest in training and equipment for more capital-intensive structural repairs

eLEARNING

To complement our existing range of instructor led, On Location training courses, BETAG has developed an eLearning program for writers and technicians, with online eModules and livestreamed eClasses.

The first elements of our eLearning program are primarily focused on non-structural damage to outer panels (currently 60%+ of the work mix in shops).

They are perfect for less experienced estimators and technicians wanting to increase their knowledge, skills and productivity - although early market feedback suggests the content is equally valuable as a refresher for more experienced estimators and technicians.
