EGIA Registration Support

This EGIA Contractor University technician communication and selling educational workshop starts with the principals of great customer service.  A technician is the primary face of the company and with proper communication training, the technician ultimately becomes the brand of the company and we’ll discuss the methods a technician can use to support a customer experience generating 5-stars reviews.  The “perfect service call” approach will be reviewed, breaking down the call into the 10 basic elements in selling success, including; no-cool & no-heat service repairs, pre-need service repairs, accessories items, service agreements and replacement equipment.  Most importantly, effective technician communication leaves the customer feeling positive about the technician interactive experience which creates great referrals.   Owners, service managers and technicians will all benefit from attending this class.
