Successful start for the GS YUASA Academy

The GS YUASA Academy is the first free online training system with 20 certified courses specifically for batteries.


Workshops, technicians and dealers are convinced by online training system.


The GS YUASA Academy is the first free online training system specifically for batteries. With more than 20 certified courses tailored to different areas of work in the industry, it provides users with valuable knowledge and practical skills. This training option pays directly into business growth and helps dealers and workshops alike optimize battery sales. Having launched in English in 2019 and Italian, German, Spanish and Swedish recently, GS Yuasa Academy is proving to be extremely popular with technicians, workshops and distributors across Europe.


Designed for both individual learners and organisations, GS Yuasa Academy is aimed at improving customer service, reducing warranty returns and maximising battery business potential. The courses are fully accredited by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), the professional body for people working in the automotive industry. Useful accompanying material further supports the learning process. Upon completion of the courses, participants receive downloadable certificates.
Modern day vehicles are becoming increasingly advanced each year. Therefore, demand for training is constantly growing, with more and more industry professionals wanting to increase their knowledge and develop skills. However, a lot simply do not have the time to go out and attend physical training sessions. GS Yuasa Academy allows learners to complete courses in the comfort of their own office or home at any time they feel is necessary.
Short, dynamic videos are broken down into bite-sized modules to make battery learning interesting and easy to follow. With engaging presenters and clear graphics, GS Yuasa Academy will help increase sales, save money, highlight upselling opportunities and ensure batteries leave the shelf in the best possible condition.
Raphael Eckert, General Manager Sales & Marketing Components at GS YUASA Battery Germany, comments: “For workshops, technicians and retailers, web-based, flexible training models are also an important part of the further development of their employees and their product range. After all, qualified workers play a crucial role in building trusting, long-term customer relationships. This is exactly where the GS YUASA Academy comes in with its content and suggests an adapted sequence of training courses depending on the participant’s level of knowledge.”
GS Yuasa Academy is not just training courses in video-based format. It also offers multiple-choice assessments along the way, to fully test the knowledge and understanding of learners as they progress.
As the world’s leading manufacturer of automotive, industrial and motorcycle batteries, GS YUASA is proud to have launched this comprehensive and unique battery training solution. To try GS Yuasa’s revolutionary online training platform, visit
