Kingpin University, which trains of mobile electronics sales professionals and installation technicians, has made available its training schedule for the remainder of 2017. The four courses, spanning July through October, will cover differing aspects of the mobile electronics business at the company’s Wilsonville, Oregon training facility.
“Every year teaches us more,” said lead instructor Jason Kranitz. “New vehicles bring more installation hurdles. New products give us more ways to deliver a better driving experience. And new techniques that we learn as a result make us better at what we do. The four classes we’ve lined up for the remainder of 2017 all feature changes and additions that reflect our industry’s new challenges and growth opportunities.”
The Nucleus installation training course is the company’s core program and is open to sales as well as installation professionals, covering a wide array of practices, tools and techniques. The curriculum starts with tips to properly quote jobs and close the sale profitably, and moves into production methods that enhance installations, improve expertise and save time. It is set for July 14-16.
For fabricators, the Sept. 23-26 Advanced Trunk training class provides some instruction on bidding jobs, but primarily focuses on design and construction methods for trunk builds, including metal work, OEM style matching, panel design and grille production.
The following weekend, Kingpin University will host its Art of Tuning class on September 28-30. The class demonstrates how installation professionals can plan and design car audio systems to achieve optimum playback. It also covers use of testing equipment as well as proper setup of processors of all types.
Kingpin University will also conduct a class for store owners Oct. 13-14. That class is “designed to implement a profitable management structure that stops (store owners) from getting bogged down in minutiae and keeps them available to handle any need or issue,” according to the university. It also provides tested tips on specific situations such as compliance and staffing.
The tuition fee for each class includes accommodations and select meals, according to Kingpen University.
