“I’m delighted to be involved in another autotechnician event where we get to meet like-minded industry professionals. This year the format is heading back to its roots and I’m looking forward to
setting a broken car task for technicians and business owners to get their teeth into and thinking caps on. As a small group we’ll look at the real-world faults that have been presented, with some added customer twists and turns for good measure and use a variety of dealer and aftermarket tools in combination with shared knowledge and decision-making on how to attack the faults from fault to fixed. We’ll cover all the meat and potatoes of the technical task, with opportunities for questions and pitstops for learning and development throughout the task. Above all, we’ll have some fun while learning about the serious business of troubleshooting faults within the workshop. I look forward to seeing you all there!”
