Come aboard HMS Autotech

By Mike Smith on May 5, 2019

If you’re looking to brush up on your fault-finding skills then grab yourself one of the last few remaining tickets for a truly unique, audience-led training day at Chatham Dockyard on Saturday 11th May.

James Dillon and Andy Crook will take command of No.1 Smithery from 9am till 4.30pm, presenting live faults and working with the audience to rule out hypotheses and determine the underlying issues.

The diagnostic experts will guide delegates through evaluating the data gathered and explain the theories and practices they both use within their workshops to solve complex problems.

Suitable for all those who wish to fine tune their diagnostic skills and fix faults faster! All previous delegates, with varying levels of experience in complex repairs, have come away with new techniques and a more structured mindset to take back into their workplace.

Call us on 01634 816 165 or email to book your place. Many delegates, and the team will be staying onsite the night before at Chatham Dockside. Catch up with colleagues at the stunning venue and make some new contacts at this not-to-be-missed event!
