Minimum Service Training Requirements (Mstr)

Nissan continues to focus on drivers to build your dealership’s service retention and profits. To support the F1 initiative, Nissan implemented Minimum Service Training Requirements (MSTR), which provide specific service technician training requirements for Nissan dealers. The requirements fall into two categories: Technician Orientation Program Certification and Shop Competency by Skill Area.

For questions regarding Minimum Service Training Requirements, or general questions regarding technical training, please contact your local training center:

Technician Orientation Program Certification

The Technician Orientation Program Certification consists of web-based e-learning courses and web-based Service Information Resource (SIR) videos and web-based post-tests. All training elements are online and can be completed in 4-6 hours. They must be completed within 30 days of employment or warranty claims with your technician ID will suspend.

The Technician Orientation Program Certification specialty areas cover topics such as: brand orientation, F1, vehicle repair process, repair order documentation, ASIST, CONSULT-III plus, service manual familiarization, vehicle maintenance requirements, electrical fundamentals, essential tools, pre-delivery inspection, and more.

Shop Competency by Skill Area

Dealerships are required to have a minimum number of Service Technicians trained in each of the four core training specialty (skill) areas: Electrical, Engine, Chassis and Driveline. The minimum number of trained technicians required in each skill area is based upon the total number of technicians employed by the dealer.

Specialty (Skill) Areas
