Service training

Always up to date
Kärcher service engineers know how to help in any situation. And that is no coincidence. We take training very seriously. We see this as the key to our success. Our service engineers, as well as those of our service partners, take part in ongoing training at our training centre, where we provide hundreds training days every year. This means that their expertise is always up to date. Ten internal and a large number of expert external training consultants are responsible for training our staff.

Training our own service engineers and service partners
Thanks to our comprehensive training system, our service engineers and those of our service partners are trained using the latest teaching methods. Specialist knowledge is acquired through technical as well as electrotechnical training. A wide range of practical exercises ensure that the service engineers are ideally prepared for working in the field.

What's more, our service technicians are trained to the level of "qualified electrician for specified tasks" ("Elektrofachkraft für festgelegte Tätigkeiten") and are therefore authorised to carry out all safety and technical tests on our machines in accordance with DGUV V3 (formerly BGV A3). With this qualification, our service engineers are legally required to produce test reports that attest to the electrical safety of their machines.

Supplementary application training ensures that your servicing jobs can be carried out to your utmost satisfaction.

Specialist training of our own service engineers
In addition to around 90 days of basic training, selected Kärcher service engineers also undertake a special training programme to ensure that they are ideally placed to meet your requirements. As the first manufacturer of cleaning machines, we train our young technicians to become IHK-certified (German Chamber of Commerce and Industry) service engineers. In order to guarantee the highest quality of service, social skills training also features in the programme, in addition to technical and application training. For instance, our service engineers receive special training in the areas of appearance and presentation, time management, conflict management and customer focus. This means that our service staff are ideally equipped for any task.

Ideally equipped – our vehicles and workshops

Our aim is to get your machine working again as quickly as possible in the event of a breakdown. This is achieved with our fleet of fully equipped service vehicles, on standby throughout Australia. If a repair cannot be carried out on-site, machines can also be sent to one of our branches, which are equipped with top-quality workshops. 


Our vehicles – a travelling workshop!

Kärcher vehicles have everything on board that service technicians need for inspections, services and repairs. In addition to all of the necessary measuring instruments, standard tools and Kärcher-specific tools, our vehicles are also equipped with the most important spare parts and wear parts, as well as accessories and cleaning agents. Not only do our service engineers have access to all of this equipment, they also have their own laptops through which the entire repair is processed. The laptops can also be used to access technical documents relating to any available Kärcher machine. We ensure that all of the essential requirements to carry out your repair – which are for us a given – can be met as quickly as possible.


Our workshops

Repairs on large machines and machine overhauls are carried out in our workshops throughout Australia. Where all of the necessary measuring instruments, standard tools and special tools, as well as all of the most common spare parts and wear parts are of course available.
