What’s better than having 3 trainers sit down with me at Vision 2022 and record their very candid conversation. Be a fly on the wall as we discuss hybrid training, student assessments and breakout teams. My panel shares their experiences and together we push the boundaries of training in our industry.

Key Talking Points
Hybrid training- pre-production ahead of time for online training, put videos in your PowerPoint to break up the monotonous voice, avoid internet problems, and have capabilities to pause the video when questions are asked Paying attention to inflation, higher wages in other industries Audience assessments with QR codes- gauges your audience and gives trainer direction, while giving the audience anonymously, gets the audience involved Don’t shut down wrong answers Early engagement- ask to raise hands, make it fun by giving away free T-shirts and hats for right answers, consider breakout rooms during training when you have a tight group of 20-30 people, especially in service advisor classes, using handouts that can be filled out and passed to each other in class, have students look at each other if you are able to have set up, the trainer can be moderator/facilitator and allow attendees to interact with each other How are attendees able to download/follow PDF of class during virtual if they only have 1 monitor?

Back in the 1990s, some shop owner's feared that fuel injection, 100 mile spark plugs, the elimination of the Distributor cap, rotor and extended fluid services would be our demise. But, that didn't happen.
Now I hear many in our industry state that "There is no needed work on an electric vehicle, they are problem free."
My opinion, let's not fall into thinking that the EV car will run forever of even for years without needed service. The EV still has tires, suspension, brakes, and a whole new area of opportunities. It will be different, but there will be a need for the Automotive Technicians and for repair shops.
