Registration opens for IRTE Skills Challenge 201222 November 2011

As the first sponsors of the IRTE Skills Challenge 2012 are confirmed, registration for the competition the bus and coach sector is talking about is now officially open.

A skills competition for bus and coach engineers in the UK and Ireland, the IRTE Skills Challenge, now in its second year, demonstrates the importance and competence of the people who keep the industry moving.

With individual and operator categories, the event in 2012 celebrates and recognises the contribution of bus and coach technicians to safety and excellence.

"The IRTE Skills Challenge represents our key aims: to support, recognise and reward competence," comments SOE chief executive Nick Jones.

"Last year, thanks to the support of our sponsors and the skills of competitors, the competition proved to be a great success, and displayed the competence of the entire sector to a wide and varied audience. The 2012 event promises to be even bigger and better."

Sponsoring the IRTE Skills Challenge are Allison Transmission, Bridgestone, Halfords Trade, Knorr-Bremse and Shell FuelSave Diesel.
