RSB Automotive Training
Training for Success
The R-M philosophy is strongly focused on ensuring that our customers become increasingly profitable. R-M training is a high-value offering that helps achieve just that – increased profitability for body shops. Born from the close collaboration between R-M’s technical experts and our professional trainers, our training is implemented on a global scale and combines state-of-the-art teaching methods with practical exercises which are efficient and fun!
R-M’s close relationship with painters revealed that they are not all that comfortable with traditional “school” type learning methods and the result was that only a small percentage of the message was retained. We, therefore, developed an entirely new concept based on the latest techniques in adult education, which avoids using long, formal presentations. We prefer the painters discover concepts for themselves, in group exercises or individual activities.
This helps them secure ideas and methods, which they can then use in body shops to reduce material consumption and above all, process time.
The training offer includes a complete portfolio of seminars, which deal with application techniques, best practices, and also an in-depth 3-level colour course. In an age where time is money, the investment of sending a painter for training has to provide a return on investment. This is why our innovative, efficient methods enable R-M to say, with conviction, that our customers are earning from learning.
