CRA Conference 2007


1 Jun 2007

More pressure on workers

Training was, once again, a key issue raised at the 94th CRA Annual Conference just held in Auckland.

Speakers pointed out how there is growing pressure to perform more and more complex repair procedures with a quicker turnaround and higher standards of quality.

Much of this pressure falls on to shop floor technicians who can only be expected to perform if they have adequate training.

Essential training should not only include up-to-date repair procedures but also how to correctly use the sophisticated equipment now required to carry out repairs on modern vehicles.

However, at no time did the conference embrace negativity, instead looking forwards and upwards to focus on success.

A record attendance of 410 registered delegates were informed, entertained and inspired by a diverse line up of speakers from around New Zealand and abroad.

The speaking schedule proved varied and entertaining but activity wasn't limited to the conference centre; the occasion brought together automotive repairers from around the country in a relaxed environment that set the scene for a great deal of fun.
