The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) says the country’s largest education-led automotive convention, Autocare 2023, will uncover the secrets to surviving in the rapidly changing vehicle repair and service sector.
International guest speakers will share the latest global trends and join a group of Australia’s leading experts for a comprehensive education programme tailored for automotive parts, service, and repair professionals.
According to the AAAA, specialised training streams for Autocare 2023 are designed to maximise learning across intensive, practical sessions. The technical training stream targets technicians and apprentices and focuses on advanced comprehensive hands-on training for the latest generation vehicles, scan tool, software, and diagnostic requirements. The business management stream is for business leaders wanting to understand emerging trends, how the car parc will change, and how to prepare their team and workshop for the future.
“Autocare is a must attend event for any workshop owner, manager, or technician wanting to take their career or business to the next level,” said Stuart Charity, CEO at the AAAA. “Autocare was built by the industry, for the industry and the training programme is designed to provide the answers the industry needs.
“Vehicle technology is changing at breakneck speed and technicians need to be trained and ready to efficiently service and repair the latest generation vehicles. For workshop owners and managers, they need to know how best to invest in the equipment, technology, and business practices to plan and adapt for future success. In addition, with the unprecedented skills shortage, finding practical methods to attract and retain great staff is more important than ever.”
The education programme will be complemented by a free trade show, with 100 leading automotive companies to exhibit their latest products and services. Tools, equipment, and services will be demonstrated on a dedicated stage while interactive displays will offer hands-on opportunities for visitors.
There will also be chances to network, including a happy hour event to be held on the show floor.
