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

    Training in my mind and opportunities has been terrible since post covid. My training has been self training past few years, get the information online and learn as you go. Working in the aftermarket there's just too many makes, models and years of vehicles to properly keep up anymore. Can't even remember the last time we were offered training opportunities through work. Other issue is when training is available, the days of working 10 hours, then expected to go to training after work, getting home at 11pm, then up for work again at 6am doesn't work for me anymore, (all while not being paid for that time also or offering pizza, which is an insult). My friends who are white collar have time off during the work week, paid time off and also paid travel expenses for training for their career. All shops need to get up to par on that topic.

    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!
