NEXUS Automotive International launched its first N! Academy for North America Jan, 12-15 during the AVI Annual Technician Conference, sponsored by NEXUS North America shareholders (APA, APSG and VIPAR Heavy Duty).
More than 250 technicians attended classes on Jan. 13-14 – along with local vocational school students – eager to learn and sharpen their automotive technical knowledge. The courses on offer were dedicated to passenger cars and heavy-duty; and covered a broad range of subjects, taught by high-level professional trainers. Subjects included hybrid electric, EV technology, heavy-duty air brake boosters, air conditioning and HD emissions systems.
This event also enabled a dozen suppliers to introduce their product experts and branded product solutions and educate the technicians about the materials. This session was in addition to the training itself and was designed to create links between the NEXUS North America community.
“APSG and our NEXUS North America Shareholder partners – APA and VIPAR – are thrilled to be a primary sponsor of the AVI training conference,” said Robert Roos, president of NEXUS North America. “Technologies in our industry are evolving at a faster and faster pace and the need for training these automotive repair experts on advanced technologies is critical to providing car and fleet truck owners with independent repair options for their vehicle.”
“NEXUS Academy is proud to expand its automotive training program for automotive professionals into North America and enhance the ways that Technicians and other automotive personnel can learn,” added Florian Precigout, garage concepts and service director for NEXUS Automotive. “As we move forward, we are excited to provide access to our N! Academy website – offering highly technical training to the basics of automotive light vehicle and heavy- duty repair – for automotive professionals of the NEXUS North America community.”
