JAS Oceania’s auto electrical diagnostics and parts/equipment training program has grown significantly since it was officially launched at the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Expo in April 2022.
Industry specific training programs have been designed and conducted by JAS Oceania using the training team’s more than 85 years of auto electrical industry experience.
JAS Oceania hosted a Certificate II Air Conditioning course at its dedicated Adelaide training facility in August 2022, resulting in the first 13 industry professionals receiving their Cert II and AC licence from the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC).
The JAS Oceania Training Team also enlisted the services of renowned air conditioning trainer, Grant Hand, to conduct this highly specialised course.
The program builds on the services JAS Oceania has provided to assist its customers deal with the constant technological, operational, and regulatory developments that are evolving with vehicle modernisation.
The JAS Oceania training team set very specific objectives to best service auto electricians and the general automotive aftermarket industry, including continued development of industry-specialised courses and support for its trade customers.
A key goal is to develop the JAS Oceania training service to provide industry-recognised qualifications, in conjunction with leading industry specialists.
“Our core focus is to ultimately provide added support to our customers and to keep them informed of technical changes and updates in the industry, said JAS Oceania Group Training Manager, Mark Bailey.
“With the constant technological development in vehicles, JAS has always recognised the importance of training to best support what customers are facing in the field. The development of the JAS Technical Training team has grown from an internal development to become a unique service to assist our valued customers.
“Following the success of our recent air conditioning training course, the intention is to conduct more of these three-day courses nationally. This is something we are actively working on.”
Part of Bapcor, JAS Oceania has 37 JAS Oceania branches nationwide. It employs more than 200 staff, who service the auto electrical requirements of repairers, mining companies, contractors, government departments and local councils.
