New training manager at Worcester, Bosch Group

Published:  18 February, 2015

Worcester, Bosch Group has appointed Jon Wheeler as its new training manager.

Previously regional sales manager for the South East, Mr Wheeler has been promoted to oversee the rolling out of training initiatives for installers, as well as managing the introduction of e-learning modules and web seminars to ensure that installers remain informed ahead of the ErP directive.

“I’m extremely proud to be taking over what is already a very successful team,” said Mr Wheeler. “Targets were surpassed last year and I’ll be working closely with the team to achieve the same fantastic results again in 2015.

“It promises to be a busy year for Worcester, not least with the introduction of ErP labelling. This directive will have a far-reaching impact on installers, and in the coming months we will look to supply them with everything they need to become the authoritative voice on the topic.

“In addition, we will be expanding the portfolio of modules that we currently offer on our Online Academy, as well as focusing on improvements to the College Links Learning Scheme to ensure that we can bring more localised training to our customers.

“Of course, we will also continue to be on hand for installers wishing to become familiar with new Worcester products and technologies, as part of the provision of opportunities for installers that underpins all we do.”
