The Group Training Academy Expands Training Resources

The Group Training Academy Expands Training Resources

All banner shops under The Group umbrella will have free access to TGTA offerings.

Following the recent merger of National Pronto Association and the Automotive Distribution Network to form The Pronto Network, The Group Training Academy (TGTA) has added the training offerings from The Network Academy to its popular web portal.

The new and improved TheGroupTrainingAcademy.com now provides more online training courses and resources than any other training option in the aftermarket, according to The Group.

“During the service provider panel at our recent national meeting, the No. 1 need cited by the service professionals was the need for more training,” said Larry Pavey, CEO of the Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group). “By combining The Group Training Academy and The Network Academy and consistently adding new content, The Group continues to lead the way in providing quality training to shops and their professional service technicians.”

All banner shops under The Group umbrella, including Federated Car Care, Pronto Smart Choice, Parts Plus Car Care Centers and national account customers, will have free access to TGTA offerings. Shops may upgrade to access premium courses and other expanded training options.

Among the updated training resources now available are more than 500 hours of content from Automotive Video Innovations (AVI), hundreds of hours of vendor training, customizable learning paths, virtual coaching and mentor programs, and live interactive training workshops. Additional resources include monthly premium courses, archived webinar recordings from AVI and contributing manufacturers, and access to the TGTA hybrid-cutaway training tool.

“The Group Training Academy remains the one-stop shop for everything training,” said Pavey. “Whether you are a technician, service advisor, shop owner, manager or parts professional, there is something for you. We will continue to enhance The Group Training Academy offerings with vendor content, industry content, as well as our own videos and training modules, all specifically designed to meet the needs of shops and service techs.”
