NEXUS Automotive International has underlined its strong credentials as a global player in the aftermarket by organising a wide-ranging programme of training events across four continents.
Delivered through its N! Academy, the in-depth sessions have been created to cover all levels from senior executives to training managers.
Two sessions have been held in Europe with eight others to follow in Asia, South America, Europe again, and Africa.
An intensive five-day session on ‘Financial risks and opportunities in the supply market’ was arranged for sales managers from 8 N! members from Cyprus, Finland, Greece, Germany, Poland and Ukraine, and took place at the Archamps campus of the European Institute of Purchasing Management.
The other European event was held in Paris, this time for 11 N! member Technical Coordinators, from French speaking countries. The three-day ‘Train the Trainers’ programme was created to develop the technical knowledge of the coordinators, so they are recognised as experts and can forge even closer relationships with the workshops who are their customers.
The course featured presentations from selected N! suppliers on ‘Petrol-diesel Engine Management’, ‘Start & Stop - Emission (DPF, SCR, EGR Valve, Turbo) Battery’ and ‘Timing Belt Electrical Engine Parts (Starter/ Alternator) Engine Sensors’.
In coming months NEXUS Executive Seminars will be held in Chennai in India and Buenos Aires in Argentina, courses for middle managers will take place in Athens in Greece and Kiev in Ukraine, Train the Trainers classes will be delivered in Johannesburg in South Africa, Chennai again, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and Murska Sobota in Slovenia, and workshop tutorials will be held in three Chinese locations (Beijing, Guangzhoud, Shanghai) and in Poland.
NEXUS CEO Gael Escribe, said: “As the biggest aftermarket community on the planet, NEXUS has access to a vast pool of technical expertise and market insight. Through our ambitious N! Academy programme we are able to share that knowledge to give N! members real value that they can take back to their own businesses to help them grow and be even more successful.”
