In-house training for vehicle manufacturers

Last week saw the turn of Fiat/Chrysler Australia (FCA) technicians to use the MTA’s training facilities for some of their own in-house training. For many years now, industry has been using the MTA Registered Training Organisation as a base.
It’s not just FCA, but other global manufacturers such as KIA Motors, Nissan and Mazda who use our state of the art facilities.
Often, the manufacturers bring with them have their own fully licensed trainer and use the MTA facilities to upskill their own employees in product knowledge and new technology training.
FCA ran courses for their staff on running electrical and electronic training. The two-day instructor led course provided FCA technicians with the skills necessary to perform diagnostics on complex electronic control systems.
Using both DMM's and Manufacturer scan-tools, FCA technicians were introduced to the diagnostic principles and processes that enable successful diagnosis and repair of the advanced technology on FCA vehicles.
The MTA has formed great relationships with manufacturers and have received positive responses, not only for the use of the MTA facilities but on the whole training centre including the workshops and classrooms.
As an added feature for manufacturers, the MTA has the capacity to safely store the manufacturers demo vehicles, saving them time, money and effort in continually delivering and removing demo vehicles.
