Hyundai opens UK training academy

Hyundai has opened its first academy in the UK aimed at training the brand’s UK dealership staff from apprentice technicians to dealer principals. From LtR: Ike Oh, HMUK president, president of HME Chang Kyun Han and Tony Whitehorn, HMUK managing director

The Hyundai Academy in High Wycombe will cover all technical, sales and service disciplines.

Tony Whitehorn, managing director, Hyundai Motor UK, said: “Hyundai has a holistic approach to delivering the best possible service.

“It is important to us that what our customers experience from the start is as good as it is at the end.

“Our industry-leading Five Year Triple Care package has now been extended and comes as standard on all passenger vehicles in the UK ensuring total transparency and we anticipate that the opening of this new centre will continue to maintain and enhance the relationship our consumers have with their dealerships.”

The work of the academy will be supplemented by regional training but 80% of all training will be delivered from this site.

It will facilitate up to 70 people per day but when free, the facility will be offered out to the local education community.
