JLM Academy launches with DPF Doctor founder Darren Darling at its helm.
The JLM Academy has launched – the brainchild of Darren Darling, founder of The DPF Doctor Network. A roster of industry respected trainers is on board including Darren and Andy Savva; aka The Garage Inspector.
Darren Darling said: “The JLM Academy is the realisation of a long held ambition. As the brand ambassador for JLM Lubricants I took my initial thoughts to Gilbert (JLM Lubricants’ founder). He responded with such enthusiasm that within a few months, here we are, ready to deliver!
“The Academy is just 20 minutes from Newcastle Airport making it an easy-to-reach destination for countries in and beyond Europe. The brand new state of the art facility offers a clean, comfortable environment where we can deliver world class automotive training for up to 12 people at a time. It’s kitted out with various diagnostic equipment, workshop data, specialist testing tools and two training vehicles – petrol and diesel engine. We have the technical knowhow to deliver top notch training on different automotive subjects. The team of trainers include Callum Lee (The DPF Doctor), Steve Scott (Simply Diagnostics), and David Massey (Autoinform).”
Courses on offer include DPF diagnostics, diesel fault finding, grass roots electrical testing, oscilloscope training and Adblue troubleshooting. Available too is a range of courses on JLM product training including the JLM DPF suite of products.
Training kicks off with an intensely practical two day training course delivered by Darren and Callum (Tuesday 10th September and Wednesday 11th September). It covers the JLM product range with a special focus on fault finding, DPF problems and DPF cleaning. The JLM Diesel Extreme Intake Cleaning Toolkit will be demonstrated with attendees encouraged to participate and get their hands dirty. The first nine attendees to confirm attendance are JLM distributors. They include Brett Lloyd, Managing Director of GCG Turbochargers Australia. Brett has booked two places. In addition to a generous goodie bag and a certificate, attendees at all training courses will receive a detailed course workbook.
Darren continued: “This training course covers the most popular JLM workshop products. We will put them into action using our test vehicles. Attendance at these workshops will be open to all JLM Distributors, their motor factor stockists and mechanics subject to places of course. We’ll be offering exclusive DPF Doctor Network Training at the Academy too. If you’re a DPF Doctor you can attend. If you’re not, you can’t!”
Commenting on the launch of The JLM Academy Gilbert Groot said: “I am delighted we’re working with Darren to deliver training to such a high standard. Undoubtedly this will help our distributors to carry the JLM message to their customer base and beyond with even more passion and focus.”
“I believe that what we’re offering is a first for the automotive market. Superb quality, detailed and practical training – to a standard you can’t get elsewhere. And delivered by a top flight team of industry respected trainers sharing their expertise and know how in a purpose built training environment,” concludes Darren.
