Eure!Car = practical knowledge for hands-on professionals.
After a theoretical introduction (20% of training time), highly skilled trainers guide the trainees through a series of practical exercises (80% of training time) on a dedicated and specially prepared training car. Partially dismantled, the Eure!Car training vehicles offer a maximum transparency on their on-board technology. The brands and models of the cars are carefully selected based on their popularity in the market and the “failures and faults" they produce in real life! Each training car is equipped with a failure simulator allowing the teacher to program common failures related to all vehicle functions (comfort, safety, engine management, …).
The training vehicle fleet guarantees an optimum coverage of the majority of technologies present in the automotive market.

Subject: Eure! Car Showcase Day SMF
Hello Steve and IFA Members
Our showcase day was extremely successful with possibly the right number of attendees for each session 10 for the first and 11 for the second. Those numbers did not include any of the college teachers who were either involved in classes or exams with the students. Those numbers ensured my customer's ability to feel relaxed and gain the most from Ant's presentation. My introduction I think was well received and on completion I had the experience to draw my customers close to the car for Ant to start. I have to say that Ant's presentation skills are excellent plus his ability to create interaction between all our customers was masterful.
Was it a success? Yes in every respect!
Strangely enough with all my worries and nerves about our showcase day, as soon as the presentation started I watch all my customers and noticeably watch their reaction to what was unfolding. This was professional, credible and by the end something they wanted to be involved with ongoing.
They simply want it!
Having now been involved in a Eure! Car Showcase Day I'm immensely proud of not only the prestige that SMF will gain but Industry respect the IFA will achieve. For me, one of my customers at the second showcase, summed up Eure! Car Masterclass by saying " the training I have seen today is infinitely better that any top technician would receive working for a main dealer ".
With all these things the hardest part is initially selling the concept to our customers and getting them away from their garages to attend. Once that's achieved they will be impressed. If you can remember the Eure! Car presentation at the Motor Cycle Museum when Manuel started by saying " If you go out and compete just on price you we’ll always be beaten, you need something else that is unique "
Now the IFA has something UNIQUE!

Customer reaction has been very positive and all are asking when the next training session is and what car it will be on.
We have supplied all attendees a questionnaire to gauge their views on the course and I will forward on the results one we have collected all.

Just had some more feedback from one of our key accounts. The gent is called Pete C. who owns two garages in our area and only ever calls me if we have a problem. He said that he has spent thousands sending his guys on various training courses and most of the time they come back and tell him it was a waste of time.
This time with Eure!car his two chaps came back with glowing reports and would not stop talking about it. This did surprise Pete but he was happy to report some good news. He is looking forward to the next car and training sessions.
