Eagerly awaited, 1-day business courses specifically for the independent garage.

These courses are unique to our industry; developed over the last two-years’ by Andy Savva, The Garage Inspector. While visiting different types of garages, it became more apparent that many garage owners and their staff were very good at repairing vehicles, but just lacked general business skills.
