A new trade Technical Open Evening will be run by Opus IVS on 19th and 20th April at the RMI Academy in Runcorn.
The provider of diagnostics solutions, backed by OE master technicians, is opening the training for free to garages, with content geared towards training and skills development. The 19th of April is open to all trade technicians, ahead of IGA holding a ‘members evening’ on 20th April.
Taking place from 6pm to 9pm, meaning garage owners and technicians will not need to close their business early, Opus IVS are aiming for a relaxed format with food and drink included. Technical sessions will be delivered on BMW and VAG brands, courtesy of BMW Master Technician Keith Witherspoon.
Garages wishing to find out more or register are invited to do so now by following this link. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
Diagnostic offering from Opus IVS
“We are providing this outside of work hours so that it is easy for busy garage owners and technicians to attend and pick up useful new information quickly,” said Karl Booth, Head of Sales for UK and ROW at Opus IVS. “Diagnostics is changing fast so it is a great opportunity to come along, listen to the latest developments and ask any questions.
“Keith is well respected by our customers, some of whom we hope will join us too. We actively encourage garages who may not be totally sure what we can offer to come and see the level of expertise first-hand.”
The Opus IVS flagship DrivePro Elite is a diagnostic tablet offering a remote services VCI and coverage for 64 brands. However, Opus IVS says the real difference is their game-changing support behind the product.
“We always include IVS 360 live support,” added Karl. “This means customers can access our team of over one hundred brand-specific OE master technicians.”
According to Opus IVS, this leads to more first-time fixes and improved retention of diagnostics work. Beyond this, there’s also an appointment-based Remote Assist Program (RAP) for on-demand complex programming and coding solutions.
