Tyresure launches IMI TPMS training programme at Automechanika
Winner of free session named as M-Sport Wheels
During the recent Automechanika exhibition Tyresure launched its latest training opportunity – an IMI-accredited specialist TPMS course. According to the company, this training is being offered to customers in the UK first and is targeting key distributors and wholesalers in the first instance.
Company representatives explained that the course features both theory and practical elements and is about servicing as much as training.
In order to raise the profile of the initiative, Tyresure ran a prize draw on-stand. All entrants had to do was drop off a business card to be in with the chance of winning a free place on the aforementioned IMI course.
Two weeks after the event closed, Tyresure announced that the winner has been confirmed as M-Sport Wheels Ltd. The business will now receive training from Tyresure’s TPMS experts, providing them with in-depth knowledge and IMI certification, once a suitable date has been arranged.
Held at Tyresure’s training facility at the firm’s head office in Whetstone, Leicestershire, the first workshops have reportedly received positive feedback from participants. James Dolden from Alloywheels.com, who attended the very first training session, said he thought the course was “very thorough and informative, covering all the different aspects of TPMS – from best fitting practices to vehicles relearns, with a good mix of practical and theoretical learning.”
Tyresure’s IMI-accredited training course is designed to teach TPMS on a personalised level, allowing participants to ask questions and learn directly from industry professionals – helping sales teams to increase their understanding of the products they sell, as well as giving servicing centres and tyre bays the information they need to work safely with TPMS.
Dolden added: “The facilities and course instructors were excellent. We most certainly gathered plenty of useful information which we can put into practice straight away in our business. I would certainly recommend this course for anybody wanting to learn more about TPMS.”
