SHOEI University Online offers qualifying dealer parts personnel video-driven courses covering both SHOEI research and development and manufacturing processes, as well as overviews of each SHOEI helmet model.
A second course covers helmet selling skills and customer handling techniques that are based on best practices culled from the top-selling SHOEI dealers around the U.S. SHOEI University Online is hosted by five-time AMA 250cc road racing champion Rich Oliver via interactive video presentations on each topic the courses cover. A third mini-course covers the all-new SHOEI X-Fourteen, SHOEI’s state of the art road racing full-face helmet launched earlier in 2016.
