Alexander Herrera was ready to expand his skillset as a technician but knew diagnosing electrical problems would be his biggest hurdle.

Then his service manager approached him about an electrical diagnosis efficiency training opportunity.


Formal Career Path

Herrera didn’t know what his career path looked like, and like many other technicians lacked the hands-on training to build his confidence.

Learning an efficient process in regard to diagnosing and understanding critical electrical issues like the theory of Ohm’s Law, basic conversions, voltage drop testing, and proper diagnosis sequencing on bugged vehicles, multimeters and test light utilization, etc. was exactly the push that Herrera needed to feel he was on a strong career path.

The opportunity to learn and test new skills on bugged vehicles is why I’m now confident that I will be able to perform at a higher level and solve these types of issues,” explained Herrera.

Upskill Efficiency Training

Not losing hours going down the wrong path on an electrical diagnosis saves huge time and increases efficiency. Matrix bootcamps increase efficiency for mechanics, automotive, and auto body technicians by an average of 30%.

By providing a simulated shop environment where mistakes are expected and leading to a better understanding of processes and procedures required to efficiently diagnose and repair vehicles, Matrix is leading the way with a modern approach to help businesses retain and recruit technicians.

I have seen so much growth in myself from this automotive training. I can’t thank my manager enough. I know other mechanics, auto body techs, and service advisors, and I can’t wait to tell them about this training,” Herrera said.
