Are A,B, and C technician levels outdated? Or do we need to take into account specialized skills that can be required in certain areas? Is there room for A, B and C levels within categories? As our industry continues to change, maybe our perspectives on technician labels change too.

Matt Fanslow Podcast: Diagnosing the Aftermarket A to Z

Key Talking Points
  • After Covid, techs were a bit burnt out on webinars and sitting behind computer screens-they appreciated being able to be hands-on again and in person without having to drive and take up their personal time after hours.
  • Pick an area to focus on- like a business coach for your technicians. Start from the ground floor 
  • Similar to case studies- using cars to teach and diagnose at the same time
  • Training- collective education on a subject matter
  • Trainer and technician bond when you’re in the shop
  • Logistically easier having in house than traveling for training
  • Assessments of every technician with 1 trainer
  • Fosters open and receptive culture
  • The relationship between techs and Scott and owners and Scott is valued and appreciated.  He gets to know them and can determine strengths and areas for growth.  The collaboration as a team is increased as well. 
  • Documenting/journaling for technicians to reference past jobs
