Presented in a sequence of engaging and informative tutorial sessions of 10-15 minutes, the newly released courses include the six-module “LuK Drivetrain Program” as well as the four-module, intermediate-level training “FAG Premium Bearings and Seals.”
“We are focused on providing not only a lineup of industry-leading products—such as our LuK clutches and FAG wheel bearings and seals—but also the requisite technical know-how to help ensure the repair job is done right. These new eLearning courses from LuK and FAG are an integral part of this strategy,” said Eric Steinbecher, President, Automotive Aftermarket Americas.
