Hickleys Automotive Academy
Today's vehicles are fitted with highly complex and sophisticated systems and these new technologies are affecting every area of the modern vehicle.
Not only are these new systems very complex, requiring a higher level of diagnosis and understanding, but these new developments are being introduced to production vehicles at an ever increasing rate. This means vehicle technicians have less time to understand the new technologies, educate themselves on testing procedures and adapt their diagnostic ability.
The drive for greater fuel efficiency, increased safety, improved security and driver comfort has meant the rapid introduction of these electronic systems into every level of vehicle production. These technological advancements are both an opportunity and a threat to current businesses operating in the automotive sector.
New technology requires new skills and gives companies that invest in training and equipment the opportunity to grow their business and profits. As technology increases the quantity of qualified, trained and skilled businesses able to repair the modern vehicle decreases, and this improves your opportunity and ensures your business longevity.
The quality and relevance of the training delivered by the Hickleys Automotive Academy is assured, because we are one of only a few nationally accredited centres approved by the NCFE to deliver automotive training with nationally recognised courses to level 2 or level 3.
