Car-Part Training a Success

On July 30, 31 and August 1, Car-Part Training was provided to an enthusiastic crowd! Recyclers had the opportunity to attend classes on the products they use and the issues they face every day. With trainers, developers, and support staff on hand, recyclers were able to receive individualized attention and 1-on-1 training for specific questions. Recyclers shared ideas with each other and previewed the new features and upcoming products that is working on.

The response was overwhelming! Here are just some of the things your fellow recyclers said about the classes they attended:

  • "Valuable info I can use"
  • "Answered all questions"
  • "Practical tips that can be used in my business"
  • "Very friendly and informative"
  • "Excellent advanced course"
  • "Great teacher - give this man more money!"
  • "I enjoyed the weekend very much"
We plan on hosting another Car-Part Training event next year — if you didn't get a chance to join us this year, we hope to see you next time!
