Overview of the IRTE Skills Challenge

IRTE’s Skills Challenge of bus and coach engineering technicians has opened for entrants. In the competition, contestants pit their wits against a number of tasks involving their practical and theoretical knowledge over the course of a day.

As in previous years, the competition is open to challengers from mechanical, electrical, mechelec and bodywork disciplines, for both apprentices and qualified technicians. A competition for experts – the Skills Challenge masters – also makes a return at this year’s event, which will run the first week of June at technical college S&B Automotive Academy in Bristol.

Teams from bus and coach operators are invited to enter the competition.
