Mr. S Punnaivanam, VP & National Service Head, Hyundai Motor India Ltd said, “As a responsible and caring brand, Hyundai is committed to provide unmatched customer satisfaction through best service experience to all our valued customers. This has helped Hyundai Motor India to retain J D Power CSI No. 1 Rank for two consecutive years, 2017 and 2018, amongst Mass Market Brands. The auto industry is evolving at a fast pace and to match the advanced technology we need to constantly upgrade the skills of our manpower through continuous training modules. With our unique training program, we aim to train more than 25,000 service manpower every year at our 22 training centers and training academies across India. Our intent is to provide superior service experience to our customers and create new benchmarks across the servicing industry.”
The training centre is built in 2,000 square feet with dedicated trainee lounge, classrooms and practice area and Hyundai has equipped it with Advanced Diagnosis Kits, Training Vehicles and Training Aggregates etc. Hyundai signed MoU with ASDC (Automotive Skill Development Council) last year to conduct training at 6 of Hyundai Training institutes for the unskilled youth.
