“You never grow old until you stop learning”. Henry Ford
As it relates to training and new technology: Are you keeping up? Are you participating in the many regional training programs that are becoming the norm today? Have you attended one? How many hours per year are you investing in to keep current or stay relevant?
You need to listen to technicians talk about keeping up with technology and diagnostics. Inside this episode are four technician interviews I met on a road trip in March 2016 while attending a day long seminar hosted by TST. If you need any confirmation on what the techs are saying about the need for quality training … get listening. If you are ‘always learning’ then listen to your peers affirm why your commitment to training is your job security.Listen and view episode notes
