    Techs - I'm curious to hear your views on training & I think this varies quite a bit between dealer and independent.

    I've only worked at 2 independents. I got training whenever I could but it was rare there. At the dealership I pushed for training and had completed everything available within 4 years. After that it was just taking occasional classes to maintain and for new product. Responsibility is shared. Shops need to create and maintain a budget for it, find quality training to get their techs, and reward techs for completing their training. Techs need to do the training, apply the training to their work, and seek out opportunities they can sell to their employers. As for picking and choosing who gets to go, be the person they want to send because you give them the best ROI for the training you receive.

    So, today is the first day of Summer...I guess these last 3 weeks of 90-degree weather were just a "warm-up." At Adams Mobile Air we are just getting ready for peak A/C season in the Texas summer heat. 🫠🥵💪 Stay cool y'all!
