The four comprehensive training programs will cover the four most important skill sets required to create a stable, thriving and profitable business. The video training programs are:

  • “Car Count Now” – A proven, step-by-step system for attracting and keeping more high-quality customers
  • “Sales Now” – A six-step sales system for increasing the average ticket and selling more services
  • “More Money Now” – A financial training course to help shop owners understand their key metrics and how they directly affect the profitability of the business
  • “Leadership Now” – A definitive guide on hiring, training and leading your team and operating a smooth-running shop

Repair Shop Coach is a Cincinnati-based company that is owned and staffed by shop owners who are currently running successful auto repair shops themselves so they can bring a “what’s happening now” approach to the ever-changing marketplace.

Its president, Ron Ipach, is known in the industry as “Captain Car Count” because he has specialized in helping more than 7,357 shop owners over the past 22 years to attract and keep quality customers with his unique approach of using low-cost and free marketing strategies to keeping shops filled with customers.
