One of our teams of experts have recently attended Thatcham’s Research Repair Focus 2016 held at Thatcham Research Centre.
With the number of advances in technology this event was paramount to our experts busy diary of training and development.
Head of Automotive, Lee Baty, commented” Working with some of the country’s largest network of repairer networks we feel it’s paramount our experts are one step of the industry and these changes. This training allows us to work closely with repairers to ensure modern vehicles are repaired correctly and safely and in line with the manufacturers specifications.”
This event is part of a constant training and development project to ensure our experts are consistently learning and developing to ensure the standards we set out and customers we work with have an unrivalled experience.
One of todays speakers estimated that we will have semi-autonomous vehicles on our roads as soon as 2018 and fully autonomous vehicles by 2021, with this in mind Laird have dedicated to training and developing all of their experts around these subjects whether its Automatic Collision Systems, carbon fibre repairs or autonomous vehicles would you trust an expert that wasn’t aware of these changes?
We often find experts in the industry struggling to work with the garage on methods and approach to the repair leaving additional pressure and time on the repairer without an expert to rely on. Part of this development of our staff means we can constantly advise and work with repairer networks to save time and costs as well as ensuring vehicles are repaired correctly and safely.
