JAS Oceania Training Team a hit with heavy vehicle aftermarket


JAS Oceania’s auto electrical diagnostics and parts/equipment training has grown significantly since the program was officially launched at the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Expo in April 2022.

Industry specific training programs have been designed and conducted by JAS Oceania using the experience of one of Australia’s last true auto electrical specialists in the market, taking advantage of the training team’s more than 85 years of auto electrical industry experience.

JAS Oceania hosted a Certificate II Air Conditioning training course at its dedicated Adelaide training facility in August 2022, resulting in the first 13 of many more industry professionals receiving their Cert II and AC Licence from the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC).

The JAS Oceania Training Team also enlisted the services of the country’s most renowned and experienced air conditioning trainer, Grant Hand, to conduct this highly specialised training course.

This successful training program builds on the foundations of the services to the industry that JAS Oceania is providing to best assist its customers to deal with the constant technological, operational, and regulatory developments that are evolving with vehicle modernisation.

The JAS Training Team provides technical tips and support on products that suit a wide range of vehicles, from passenger and light commercial all the way through to heavy vehicle agricultural applications.

The team is also considering that any training on auto electrical products covers the broad base of knowledge to the JAS product range based on its market application, which would include heavy vehicles.

“Our core focus is to ultimately provide added support to our customers and to keep them informed of technical changes and updates in the industry,” said Mark Bailey, JAS Oceania Group training manager.

“With the constant technological development in vehicles, JAS has always recognised the importance of training to best support what customers are facing in the field. The development of the JAS Technical Training team has grown from an internal development to become a unique service to assist our valued customers.

“Following the success of our recent air conditioning training course, the intention is to conduct more of these three-day courses nationally. This is something we are actively working on.”

JAS Oceania is an integral part of Bapcor Limited, Australasia’s largest automotive aftermarket specialised company. There are 37 JAS Oceania branches nationwide employing more than 200 staff, servicing the auto electrical requirements of repairers, mining companies, contractors, government departments and local councils.
