Companies supporting education in the industry like 3M, Bendix, Chief, Diesel Laptops, Enterprise, GFS, I-CAR, and many others highlight the afternoon agenda at the third annual HD Repair Forum.

The HD Repair Forum’s education program is geared towards providing executives, owners, managers, and leaders of companies within the industry with actionable information that can be used in their respective business.

HD Repair Forum Advisory board member, Rodney Rowland of Lakeside Trucks states, “The combination of high level technical, leadership, and business management information immediately pays dividends in my shop. The knowledge I have gained, and will gain at this year’s event allows me to better prepare my business for the future.”

All stakeholders, including insurers, independent appraisers, collision repairers, shop owners, OEM’s, information providers, and others allied to the field are encouraged to attend these sessions. Each educational session is designed to be short and impactful, with most classes being sixty minutes in length and a few taking ninety minutes.

“Aside from networking, one of the most valuable aspects of this event is the knowledge gained. The event provides a diverse set of classes that can be applied to personal growth or business improvement.” HD Repair Forum Advisory board member, Ed Rietman of K&R Truck Sales explains. “Employee development and management is always top of mind, and this years’ program will not disappoint.”
