Hunter Introduces Hunter University Training Platform

May 22, 2024

Hunter Engineering Co. has introduced Hunter University, a new global learning platform for accessible training for customers, technicians, technical school instructors, students and more.  

The platform collects all of Hunter’s learning content into a single place offering dozens of free online courses. It also allows for registration for hands-on, in-person courses at training centers around the United States.  

“Given the industry’s critical need, we recognize our responsibility to help train current and future technicians,” says Tom Settle, field development director for Hunter.  

"Hunter University makes it easy to select training in the way that suits each person best.” 

As part of the nine-month effort, all existing content was updated and often converted from PowerPoint presentations to shorter modules with narration and video.  

The online courses are available in 21 languages and generally spaced out into five-minute segments, so even a 10-module course could be completed in one hour, according to Hunter officials.  

The platform provides a more individualized training experience and allows for equipment certifications to be earned on a self-guided basis. Technical school instructors can download the material and use it in classes too.  

The course catalog offers instruction on numerous automotive service topics with the most popular topics being Introduction to Alignment, HunterNet 2 Tools and Uses and ADAS Overview. 

In-person training by ASE-certified instructors is available at more than 50 training centers around the country.  

“The intention behind Hunter University is to streamline everything for everybody,” says Settle.  

“People will be able to more rapidly develop the skills necessary for a successful and profitable career in automotive service.”
