Hyundai's Mr Ike Oh, Chang Kyun Han and Tony Whitehorn

The first Hyundai Academy in the UK has been opened in High Wycombe by Chang Kyung Han, President of Hyundai Motor Europe.

The new training facility has been designed to provide training to Hyundai's UK dealership staff - apprentices through to Dealer principals, covering technical, sales and service staff.

The training provided by the Academy will be supported by regional training. However, 80% of training delivered will be by the Academy, up to 70 people per day. When the facility is not being used, it will be offered out to the local education community.

President Han commented: "The opening of this Training Academy in the UK reinforces Hyundai Motor Group's commitment to ensuring top level and consistent Customer Service. It will provide first-class tuition and excellent personal development opportunities for our dealership staff.

"The UK is a rapidly growing market for Hyundai, making an extremely important contribution to the development of our business and our brand in Europe."

Tony Whitehorn, managing director, Hyundai Motor UK Ltd said: "Hyundai has a holistic approach to delivering the best possible service. It is important to us that what our customers experience from the start is as good as it is at the end. Our industry-leading 5 Year Triple Care package has now been extended and comes as standard on all passenger vehicles in the UK ensuring total transparency and we anticipate that the opening of this new centre will continue to maintain and enhance the relationship our consumers have with their dealerships."
