Why HPA was born

The EFI tuning industry is unusual in the fact that there is no formal qualification path to become a professional tuner. You can’t go to university or a polytechnic and come away with a qualification that makes you an ‘EFI Tuner’. The result is an industry with many tuners who don’t even understand the basic fundamentals of EFI. Often the outcome is poor results, damaged engines, frustrated customers and a general lack of trust in the industry as a whole.

Compounding this problem is that the small number of tuners who do know what they are doing and are achieving good results, didn’t want to share their knowledge. This left few opportunities for enthusiasts to learn. Traditionally your only option was to attend a live in-person course, andthis style of learning can be inconvenient and expensive to attend.

The High Performance Academy was formed as a solution to this situation. A single place where budding enthusiasts and experienced tuners alike, can develop their tuning skills and knowledge.

Why learn to tune online

These days our lives are only getting more and more busy, so finding the time to devote to learning can be difficult. Learning online is the natural choice, allowing you the flexibility to fit in with your schedule.

Convenience

The biggest advantage with learning online is the ability to learn whenever or wherever it suits you. Taking time off work to attend a course can be costly, and our courses allow you to learn in the evenings or on weekends.

Reference Library

When learning any new topic, it’s often hard to digest all the information straight away. Our online courses become a reference library for you, meaning you can rewatch the courses whenever you want. This helps cement your understanding.

Cost

Attending a live training course can be expensive. There is time off work, travel, accommodation and rental cars to consider. This can quickly add up to thousands of dollars before you even factor in the course costs. Learning online strips away all these extra costs ensuring you are only paying for the course material.

Got Questions?

We know that you will have questions that crop up or topics you need clarified. That’s ok because our online forum is the place to get these questions and more answered. Our tutors are active on the forum, as are hundreds of other smart tuners.

Relevance

The performance tuning industry is fast paced and always evolving. Our online structure allows us to develop and introduce new material quickly and easily to always keep you on the cutting edge of new technology and practices.

The history of HPA

HPA founders Andre Simon and Ben Silcock cut their teeth and gained first-hand experience running a world class performance workshop tuning thousands of high performance cars. Their experience taught them how poor the current level of tuning knowledge was in the industry. From there, they established a classroom based course to teach the fundamentals of EFI tuning. Worldwide demand grew and they made the decision to start HPA to focus solely on providing accurate, quality EFI training solutions that are easily accessible to everyone.
