S&S® Dealer Training and Certification Programs
S&S® Cycle has selected PowerSport Institute, a division of Ohio Technical College to conduct its Factory Training Center to train technicians in the installation and tuning of S&S high performance engine kits and the repair of S&S high performance motorcycle engines and fuel delivery systems. Starting in January 2011, the first PSI-operated S&S Factory Training Center classes will cover the S&S Variable Fuel Injection (VFI) system and the Sidewinder training course that detail the mechanical aspects of engines and kits. The classes will serve S&S dealer technicians from around the world who want to expand their knowledge of servicing this premium line of motorcycle engines.
Class size is limited to a maximum of six students to keep the student to teacher ratio down. Students who complete the courses will be proficient at servicing and rebuilding S&S engines and using the Protune II software. We've even added an additional day to each Center for increased hands-on/diagnostic time and classroom material. Yes, Sidewinder (engine class) is now increased to 4 days from 3! The popular VFI Tuning course has also lengthened to 4 days from 2. We've added more shop time for more "hands-on" opportunity including troubleshooting techniques and key diagnostic procedures. Students will also become proficient using ProTune II to calibrate engines with various S&S components and performance packages!
Benefits for Certified Dealers
Attending training and becoming certified at S&S Cycle brings you and your shop many rewards. It starts with your customers who ride S&S equipped bikes; they will know you are trained to provide them the best service possible. It is also very important that S&S will recognize your shop and promote you as a certified dealer on our website. Finally, we feel so strongly about the importance of technical training for our dealers that we are willing to give special, preferential discounts to dealers who are willing to make the effort to achieve Pro Tuning Center status
Dealers who have achieved any level of certification will be2011 recognized on the Dealer Locator of the S&S website. This is an important consideration since the S&S website receives over a half million visits every month. We'd like to send some of that traffic your way, and it stands to reason that certified dealers will be more apt to attract customers on the Dealer Locator than dealers who are not certified.
Additional price discounts from standard dealer net can be earned based on prior year purchases. Annual volumes shown in the following chart are for total invoiced shipments (net of any returns) from January 1st to December 31st. Additional discounts become effective once the annual volume is achieved and remain in effect through that year and for the following calendar year. If the required annual volume to maintain an existing discount level is not achieved in a calendar year, adjustment will be made for all orders placed effective January 1st of the following year. Note that a minimum of $1,250 annual volume must be purchased from S&S to maintain active dealer status.
Additional discounts for S&S Pro Tuning Center certified dealers is another reason to invest in training for you and your employees. We are confident that being recognized as an S&S Pro Tuning Center will increase your sales, and with the additional discounts that go along with that distinction, it won't take long to recover your investment and move on to increased profitability.
