SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (Feb. 1, 2012) — Federal-Mogul Corp. is taking its technician training classes on the road with a fleet of mobile training units to make training more accessible and affordable.
“We are leveraging our extensive technician training programs delivered at our central training center in St. Louis by taking the training, resources and experts on the road, with a phased roll-out of a fleet of fully-equipped mobile training units throughout the United States and Canada. The result will be enhanced training accessibility, less time away from the shop and greater return on investment for technicians and shop owners,” said Paul Johnson, vice president, Federal-Mogul North American aftermarket.
The “Market Connect” mobile training units will be centrally scheduled and dispatched over several geographic territories throughout the U.S. and Canada, the company said. They will deliver core training to technicians using experiential, on-site instruction and new Web-based and virtual training technologies. Through mobile training, Federal-Mogul said it will deploy resources directly into the market on-demand, providing flexibility to address market and customer requirements and increasing successful service visits in the most efficient manner possible.
Southfield-based Federal-Mogul said the mobile training units are part of a broader strategy of bringing turnkey training services to the market, increasing curriculum penetration and maximizing customer value. The fleet will leverage and supplement the Federal-Mogul Technical Education Center (TEC) in St. Louis, as well as its online class offerings and technical hotline.
