100% Disassembly and Parts Best Practices

This class explores the importance of creating a culture of doing things WITH your team, not TO your team and how to gain their support for the common goal of 100% disassembly. Often shops believe they are completely disassembling vehicles, however, we find the vehicles still have components that should have been R&I’d. Therefore, this course will look at the reasons WHY components need to be R&I’d from a vehicle and provide real-world examples for each reason.
