Celsus training gains IMI Awards assurance
Digital radio specialists Celsus have had their training endorsed by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) Awards as they seek to deliver training to automotive technicians looking to capitalise on the growing market for in car DAB radio conversions.
Celsus have become an IMI Awards Approved Centre and have had their DAB installation training assessed and endorsed through the Quality Assured Awards (QAA) programme.
DAB installation training is now approved to be delivered either on site, or from their new head offices in Poole, Dorset. The first courses are scheduled to be delivered later this month. The IMI Awards QAA means garages gain a certificate upon completion of the course, and the credibility to market themselves locally as trained and skilled installers.
Training can be completed in as little as half a day. Alternatively, the full day on garage site includes customer service training, ideas on how to present and sell digital radio upgrades and provides fully documented processes on set up and installation of DABmotion.
Mark Baker, Celsus Marketing Director said: “The training gives the tips and secrets to getting installations right, as well as covering the theory. Garage technicians will be able to install DABmotion on any car and guarantee their customers that they will be driving away with working in car digital radio!
“The unique advantage of our training is it’s geared precisely to the installation and set up of our DABmotion range of solutions. This means technicians learn exactly what they’ll need to know in proper depth not just generic principles. The practical demonstration of antennae placement shows just how much positioning can affect performance for example.”
The DABmotion car radio conversion kit offers an integrated solution so drivers can enjoy the benefits of digital radio through their existing car audio head unit. The wireless ‘black box’ interface that can be installed behind the dash, professional fitting ensures a seamless solution and typically takes less than hour.
