Do you have a passion for teaching others and watching them grow? Is it something you’ve been interested in doing? I’m with Brandon Steckler at the TST Big Event 2022 and we discuss his path to becoming a trainer and writer for MotorAge Magazine. He also shares a transparent review of one of his classes from a peer. A special episode I did with Brandon on his passion for teaching is Episode 342. Speaking of training, did you know that auto tech colleges need part-time instructors? It is a great way to engage with auto tech students. How about being a high school night school trainer. Let’s think outside the box and advance the aftermarket together.
Brandon Steckler, instructor for CarQuest Institute and WorldPAC Training Institute, Technical Editor for MotorAge Magazine, technical support and beta testing for Automotive Test Solutions. Listen to Brandon’s previous episodes HERE.
Key Talking Points
- Life after being a technician- opportunities to be a trainer/teacher, breaking the ice as part-time instructor at local schools, writers also needed at magazines, start reaching out to the current instructor
- WorldPac- subject matter experts (Honda), Brandon builds curriculum
- Carquest- a group of subject matter experts that put together classes to train the trainer while having input/case study with the trainer
- Training/teaching assessments- an accurate description of the class and not an advertisement
- “Teaching a 6 year old is true mastery”
- Matt Fanslow Diagnosing the Aftermarket A – Z “Divorce Discourse” with Brandon Steckler
