ECP unveils Euro Academy

Euro Car Parts (ECP) has this week unveiled its Euro Academy, an innovative technical resource designed specifically to support the independent garage.

Boasting IMI-certified training, the membership initiative also encompasses a dedicated technical phone helpline and an online diagnostics database that includes a reference library of previous faults.

Supported by training specialists Grup Eina, the Euro Academy covers all areas of vehicle maintenance. This includes electrical, electronic, mechanical and diagnostic fault-finding and offers total assessment and training solutions for every level of workshop employee. For the master technician, courses take place at one of ECP’s IMI-approved training centres.

The Euro Academy programme covers three levels of membership. Level one offers unlimited use of helpline time, as well as access to Euro Vehicle troubleshooting and online assessments for technicians. Level two adds to that with one, two-day training course, while level three offers three, two-day training courses every year.

Martin Gray, UK chief executive officer at ECP said, ‘We’re delighted to further build on our commitment to the independent garage by unveiling our new training initiative. Technology continues to evolve at pace, with vehicles that are now more fuel efficient, computationally complex and diverse than ever before. With alternatively-fuelled vehicles and connected technology all making their way into the garage, it is important that the industry is in a position to respond.’
