TrainSMART is Pro-Cut's nationwide training and certification program in rotor matching. The two-part program begins with an online class where techs complete a ten section web based program with companion videos, take a 15 question quiz, and upon passing the quiz, print a personalized certificate. This takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.
The second part of the program is a hands-on training class offered either at one of our official training centers, or on site at your shop given by your local Pro-Cut Expert. Every new lathe sold by Pro-Cut includes this on site training at no additional cost and to get the most of the hands on training taking the online class is a prerequisite. Please bring your printed certificate to the hands on training and the instructor will sign it to certify that you are now a full Pro-Cut Certified Technician!
TrainSMART certification will give your techs the expertise needed to use the Pro-Cut lathe efficiently, competently, and profitably. It will also provide them a basic understanding of troubleshooting and service that will minimize downtime and service costs. Finally, as a shop with TrainSMART certified techs, your business will receive recognition on thePro-Cut website as a certified shop, offering proof to customers that your shop offers top-quality brake service.
The Pro-Cut on-car lathe and rotor matching is already required by virtually every OEM in the USA. As a technician, your future will be positively affected by your ability to use this innovative piece of shop equipment. Given the speed of the Pro-Cut process and the current time allotments for brake service, a tech who knows how to use the Pro-Cut lathe can count on earning at least 1.8 hours of pay for 1.0 hour of work. TrainSMART certification will stay with you for your entire career, providing better job security and bigger paychecks.
For those that want to become an absolute expert on Rotor Matching using the Pro-Cut method, a new Master Level Program was created in conjunction with NC3 (The National Coalition of Certification Centers) and Snap-on. This will only be held at select NC3 certified technical colleges throughout the USA. Upon successful completion, students and/or technicians will be certified as Master Rotor Matching Technician and develop a highly valuable skillset by being able to diagnose and repair one of the most common and misunderstood customer issues facing the automotive repair industry.
