For professionals: free of charge training
Pre-registering for the event means that you do not need to pay for the accredited training sessions that are held as part of Automechanika Frankfurt. These workshops have been put together with the help of high-profile partners and cover almost the whole damage repair process chain for a vehicle following an accident.
In addition to the traditional bodywork repair and respraying, the workshops look at the latest technical developments and issues such as alternative drives (hybrid, electric and hydrogen powered vehicles), diagnostic technologies and assistance systems. Also discussed are damage assessment systems for cars and how these are used to calculate the repair costs and communicate them digitally to the insurer.
Registration for the workshops will be shortly possible on the workshop detailpages.
At the accident damage workshop as part of the automechanika, the participants can Experience the ideal process of accident repair first-hand. Each individual step is each from a competent and reputed company covered. There is nowhere else in this form.
I have already passed on my newly acquired knowledge at the trade fair to our technical students and thus at least partially updated the level of knowledge of our master students. The offered workshops were structured in terms of content and methodology and fully met my expectations.
Happy to visit Automechanika again. This time four unforgettable days. I have learned much with the workshops and I have met many interesting people.(...)The perfect organization. Very good work.
The DAT workshops at the Automechanika are very practical and provide solutions for the digital processes in the specialist workshops for bodywork and paint. There will also be enough time during the workshops to ask questions about damage calculation / damage communication, which will also be answered by the DAT experts.
