The technicians were tested on their theoretical and practical skills to complete the Service Maintenance Technician programme as part of a commitment by Fraikin to ensure it has a highly skilled pool of talent within its branches.
They completed practical assessments on braking, engine mechanical systems, transmissions, suspensions, steering and electronic systems, before an hour-long theory exam.
Fourteen individuals with the highest pass-rates are now working towards their irtec Advanced Technician licence (level three). From this group, a further team will be selected to take the Master Technician licence (level four), beginning in July.
Ant Perfect, learning and development manager at Fraikin, says: “Having subject-matter experts is key to further enhancing the credibility of our workshops and the Master Technician route is the appropriate benchmark for us to have for this across our engineering network.
He adds: “Taking part in the irtec programme also highlights our team as being among the best qualified in the industry.”
The licences are valid for five years.
