FIX AUTO UK LAUNCHES ONLINE LEARNING PLATFORM TO ITS ENTIRE BODYSHOP NETWORK
Fresh from the recent Fix Auto UK National Conference which was themed ‘Achieving Peak Performance’, the bodyshop network has revealed it is rolling out a sophisticated online learning platform to every team member within its 83 franchise sites.
The system will provide Fix Auto bodyshops with free, user-level, access to more than 120 short, web-based video courses designed to develop people’s knowledge and skills across a wide range of business disciplines. Fix Auto have secured 2,500 licences to encompass everyone from the shop floor to the boardroom.
Areas covered by the Fix Auto Online Learning platform include management and leadership, HR, customer service, sales, communication, project management, policy and compliance, along with finance and IT skills.
The modules - which can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - are designed to provide up-to-the-minute education and guidance on a wide range of topics, with the learner’s understanding tested by a series of short post-course tests. Upon successful completion of a module, the user is provided with a downloadable certificate to use as evidence of Continuing Professional Development.
Ian Pugh of Fix Auto UK, said: “Training is one of the key differentiators in the Fix Auto proposition. The Fix Auto Online Learning platform provides significant strength to our offering, and will dovetail perfectly with our Performance in Estimating and Institute of Leadership and Management programmes as we seek to Achieve Peak Performance.
“By using the platform we are able to help and develop our entire network on areas of critical importance such as data protection and compliance, with minimal disruption to the teams’ existing workloads. Furthermore by making such a wide range of content available to all users, we are allowing people the option of studying further areas that may interest them on any type of device, 24/7.”
Ian, who has embarked on his own personal study programme through the system, added: “I have found the modules that I have taken so far both enlightening, and extremely informative. The video-rich tutorials provide a very modern way of learning without leaving my desk and, crucially, I am able to complete them with very minimal downtime.”
