BMW has opened a €33 million technical training facility in Unterschleissheim near Munich.

The BMW Group Sales and Aftersales Training Academy will be the flagship training centre for 45,000 employees within the BMW Group worldwide dealer network.

In premises covering 20,000 square metres, up to 450 participants per day will receive further training, with the focus on practical learning. 70 technical training stations for cars and motorcycles have been developed alongside an axle measurement work station, power testing station and a model parts store.

A special unit will concentrate on electrical engineering, electronics and even high-frequency engineering. Service engineers will be able to practice real situations in role plays and plans are underway for a ‘Virtual Reality Room’, in which trainers and participants will be able to work on virtual vehicles through computer-linked goggles and gloves.

Over 10,000 German dealer staff will be trained at the centre. Staff from international markets will work on the principle of ‘train the trainer’, whereby trainers and technical specialists will participate in the academy and then pass on their knowledge to the training establishments in their home countries.
