Vale Training, a Sedgwick company, announced that it will team up with asTech to provide enhanced learning technologies to the automotive industry. As part of the partnership, asTech will outfit Vale classrooms with its patented remote diagnostic device to enhance vehicle damage assessments, according to Vale Training.
Vale students will be able to scan classroom vehicles to assess all sensor systems, identify any hidden collision damage and related vehicle information with asTech’s device, according to the company.
“Using the asTech device will supplement our hands‐on approach to learning, teaching how and why pre‐ and post‐scanning a damaged vehicle improves the estimate process and aligns to OEM recommendations. Using this technology will prepare our students to understand the data created by Advanced Driver‐Assistance Systems (ADAS) and, in turn, better serve the industry,” said Douglas F. Dell, vice president and director of the Vale National Training Center, Inc.
“We are proud to partner with Vale in the education and training of future automotive technicians who will assist collision and mechanical repair facilities in the safe and proper repair of today’s complex Automobiles,” said Dan Young, senior vice president of Insurance and NV Sales at asTech.
