What is myFirstech Academy?

MyFirstech Academy is a training program by Firstech, makers of Compustar and DroneMobile, designed to equip every installer with the knowledge and experience they need to deliver amazing installation experiences to clients. Training events, which are scheduled for Q3 2022 for authorized dealers, will include two days of intensive instruction at different skill levels.

Our mission is to provide practical training and knowledge that pertains to everyday, real-world installations. We are committed to training installers not only how to produce more quantity, but also how to do it with confidence and consistency in all situations.

Our Approach to Training

With over a hundred years of 12-volt industry experience, Firstech’s award-winning technical support team, led by Wade Beebe, has formulated a curriculum that has something to offer for installers of all levels. Each training event will offer a variety of learning environments to ensure maximum knowledge retention.

  • Bench trainers for understanding fundamentals of electronics
  • Steering columns with ignition switches for start/stop simulation
  • Wire prep and soldering practice stations (no t-taps here, please!)
  • Minimum of 3 different vehicles for full installation walkthrough
  • Q+A with Firstech technical support members
  • Networking with other industry professionals

Through myFirstech Academy, the Firstech tech support team hopes to create a great experience for all students and technicians, while reinforcing that there is no such thing as a stupid question.

Focus on Remote Start & Security

Being 7-time recipients of the “Top Vendor Award” in Security and Convenience, it should be no surprise that myFirstech Academy’s trainings will focus primarily on remote start and security installations. Each session will included hands-on, step-by-step walkthroughs of remote start installs on at least 3 different vehicles.

All that said, our goal is to enhance your understanding of 12-volt as a whole so that you and your team can improve your installation technique and knowledge in all areas.
