Is your knowledge worthy of a certificate?

Training from Comma

Published:  15 January, 2015

Vehicle manufacturers dictate the use of highly technical engine oil and coolants to meet EU legislation and provide fuel efficiency and performance. These are vehicle specific as VMs create a bespoke package to cater for each particular model and make their use a warranty-critical condition of servicing in the aftermarket. Comma has two interactive online Product Training Academy modules which explain the various technologies involved and concludes with a training module and a 100% score gets you a Certificate of Excellence which can be printed off. "The independent sector fought long and hard to secure the opportunities afforded by the EU Block Exemption provisions, but it does mean that technicians have to view lubes and coolants in exactly the same light as OE-compliant hard parts and fit strictly by application," says Comma spokesperson Mike Bewsey. "The Comma Training Academy modules have been developed to inform and promote essential product understanding. Combined with our comprehensive online VRN data, they give technicians the confidence to consistently make the right product applications for every vehicle make and model."
