NEXUS Automotive International, the Automotive Aftermarket Company, launched its first N! Academy for North America January 12-15, 2023 during the AVI Annual Technician in-person Training Conference, sponsored by NEXUS North America shareholders (APA, APSG and VIPAR Heavy Duty).
More than 250 technicians attended classes on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th January, along with local vocational school students eager to learn and sharpen their automotive technical knowledge.
The courses on offer were dedicated to passenger cars and heavy duty; and covered a broad range of subjects including: hybrid electric, EV technology, Heavy Duty air brake boosters, air conditioning and HD emissions systems. These were taught by high level professional trainers.
This event also enabled a dozen suppliers to introduce their product experts and branded product solutions and educate the technicians about the materials.
This session was in addition to the training itself and designed to create links between the NEXUS North America community.
“APSG and our NEXUS North America Shareholder partners , APA and VIPAR, are thrilled to be a primary sponsor of the AVI training conference,” said Robert Roos – President of NEXUS North America.
“Technologies in our industry are evolving at a faster and faster pace and the need for training these automotive repair experts on advanced technologies is critical to providing car and fleet truck owners with independent repair options for their vehicle.”
“NEXUS Academy is proud to expand its automotive training program for automotive professionals into North America and enhance the ways that technicians and other automotive personnel can learn,” said Florian Precigout – Garage Concepts and Service Director for NEXUS Automotive.
