Enhancing technical knowledge with ContiTech training

Technical and practical training provides technical knowledge about drive belts /Training programs throughout Europe

(PresseBox) (Hannover, ) In order to offer their customers the best service, mechanics must always be up to date with the latest technology. Workshops can enhance their skills by taking advantage of the training programs offered by the ContiTech Power Transmission Group. In the technical training course lasting several hours, experts will provide you with knowledge relating to timing belts in motor vehicles. In the technical practical training, the participants will not only be provided with theoretical knowledge, but also spend one day practicing actual timing belt changes on various engines.

ContiTech offers technical training throughout Europe - from England, France, Russia and Poland right up to Slovenia and Croatia. The training is free of charge and experts provide the participants with technical knowledge about drive belts. Participants learn how to handle timing belts correctly, what the distinguishing properties of a timing belt are and what can lead to timing belt damage in motor vehicles. They also learn about special topics such as timing belt profiles and materials and the use of belt tension testers. Kai-Uwe Suppé, a technical trainer at ContiTech, says, "For anyone who services cars and processes complaints, this technical knowledge is indispensible." Main focus points can be selected from the content of the program. Up to 25 people can take part per technical training course.

Practical training - a success factor. The beginning of 2009 marked the start of ContiTech's oneday practical training courses in Germany. During the training, auto and master mechanics had the opportunity to practice changing timing belts on five practice engine on their own. Special tools in the CONTI® TOOL BOX and the CONTI® BTT Hz belt tension tester are used. The trainer also provides technical information about timing belts. ContiTech offers the oneday sessions for groups of up to twelve persons. "By restricting the number of participants, each participant can practice changing belts on all the practice engines," Suppé explains. "And we can address all the questions that come up." A fee is charged for these courses.

ContiTech organizes both training programs together with dealerships. Workshops can register for the courses at their dealers. Further information is also available in the Internet at
