NGK Academy launched to train the aftermarket

Ignition and sensor specialist NGK Spark Plugs has launched a new online training portal aimed at supplying essential learning opportunities to workshops, with content also of value to aftermarket distributors.

Working with Our Virtual Academy (OVA), the new NGK Academy online portal includes over 270 technical training videos across a myriad of technical subjects and components. OVA has also created a suite of bespoke industry leading training videos on spark plugs. Further NGK/NTK product focused training will be developed in the future.

The spark plug training videos, three of OVA’s core training videos and other existing NGK/NTK training content, will be free to access on the NGK Academy for all once they have enrolled on the portal. Access to the full range of over 270 videos will incur a charge. 

NGK Academy offer through Boxclever

However, to mark the launch NGK is funding a three-month full access trial for hundreds of members of its BoxClever independent garage loyalty scheme.

“NGK Academy is designed to provide valuable, meaningful training that users can take on-board to help them each day at work,” commented Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd. “We believe it is a market-leading initiative and one that will prove popular not only with workshops, but also distributors.

“Our Virtual Academy has a host of incredibly useful training programmes on different aspects of a vehicle’s systems including comprehensive training videos on electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrids which we know our independent garage customers are extremely interested in.”

Ben Stockton, Managing Director of OVA, added: “NGK Academy is designed to increase technicians’ knowledge by providing the detailed information they need to fully understand the subject matter.

“In addition to the NGK training videos, NGK has purchased access to more than 270 training videos for hundreds of their customers. They’re on topics such as vehicle electrics, petrol and diesel engine management, chassis, hybrid and EV and HVAC.

“We have also provided access to our dedicated content associated to the formally recognised qualification IMI Level 3 Award in Electric/Hybrid Vehicle System Repair and Replacement QFQUAL I.D 60314680. After watching and learning, if someone wishes to turn their online learning into this formally recognised qualification, they can pay to attend an assessment day at one of our 15 training facilities which are located throughout the UK.

“The garages with full access to the NGK Academy will gain access to this material for three months from when they first sign in. If they wish to purchase access to the content after that point, they can do so by contacting us.”

You can enrol for free limited access, paid full access or use your Promo Code for three months’ full access of NGK Academy at: ngkacademy.com.
