The first REPXPERT Academy Live training day event to take place since 2020 will take place at the STEAM Academy at Bridgend College’s new Pencoed campus on Saturday 21st May, where visitors will be able to learn about the latest technologies, tools, and product installation skills from Schaeffler’s REPXPERT team, in four 45-minute training sessions.
Each session is designed to provide workshop owners and technicians a taster of the complete one or two-day IMI certified training packages available direct and through its distribution partners, in which it shares useful tips, tricks, and best practice advice.
Schaeffler will be offering an introduction to LuK Double Clutch Systems, as well as a Timing Belt Workshop from Tim Adams. Local garage owner, Hayley Pells of Avia Autos, is supporting the event, as well as hosting a training session on ‘Pathway to EV’. Another local garage owner, Tim Benson, will be the second guest presenter, with an all-new workshop business masterclass.
There are breaks between each session so that delegates can grab refreshments whilst networking in the workshop. Visitors can check out the Laser Tools display, talk technical at the REPXPERT training van, chat to the TechMan team, or take a look at the latest technology from braking specialists Brembo and mechatronics experts ACtronics. The IMI will also be demonstrating how technicians can make best use of its range of services, whilst representatives from the college will also be on hand to hopefully forge mutually beneficial relationships with local garages.
Schaeffler Technical Manager, Alistair Mason, said; “Presenting the resources that REPXPERT offers in an informal live format, where attendees can get hands-on with a wide range of products, tools and systems, is obviously what mechanics are looking for – judging by the numbers we have signing up for the Bridgend Academy Live event.
Entry to REPXPERT Academy LIVE is free of charge and includes complimentary breakfast, lunch, and refreshments throughout. Doors open at 9am and closes around 4pm.
