Gabriel hosting spring tech training event for industry

Gabriel announced this week the launch of the annual Gabriel HD Spring Training Event, now open for commercial vehicle service professionals including shop owners, technicians and counter personnel in the continental U.S and Canada through March 31, 2021.  

During this training event, Gabriel says service professionals will learn how to sell and install shocks, check for worn shocks, identify the difference between misting and leaking shocks, maximize tire life, adjust a GasSLX shock, and learn the key advantages that Gabriel’s FleetLine Heavy-Duty Shocks and GasSLX Adjustable Shocks have to offer today’s fleets.

Also new for 2021 is Gabriel HD’s video-based interactive training experience. The company says there are two levels of training, offering three short videos on each level with a few multiple choice questions after the videos. Participants are not required to complete both levels to qualify, but may choose to for more training and prizes. Gabriel adds its self-paced training format allows participants to quit at any time and come back to where they left off.

After each training level is successfully completed, participants will get to choose a prize, and then may advance to the next level. The company says premium prizes include mechanic’s gloves, winter beanies, ball caps, cell phone power banks, golf balls, hoodies, insulated stainless tumblers, Omni-directional work lights with USB power bank, and tool sets with sockets and bits.

Additional training resources provided by the AnswerGarage include a technician’s tool kit full of Gabriel HD technical bulletins, industry specific articles, Gabriel Product Guides and 2021 Catalog, along with product sell sheets for learning everything technicians and counter personnel need to know about commercial vehicle ride control, the company says.
