By autotech-nic on January 23, 2023

Schaeffler has announced a date for the next roadshow, which will take place at New City College Hornchurch on Saturday 4th February 2023. Due to the popularity of these events, workshop technicians and garage owners in North-East London and the South-East of England are being encouraged to register for the free training as soon as possible.

The New City College event will follow the usual REPXPERT Academy LIVE format, with attendees being welcomed from 9am for breakfast and registration, and group training sessions starting at 10 am until around 4pm. Complimentary lunch and refreshments throughout the day are included, and as every Academy Live is held in partnership with The Institute of the Motor Industry (the IMI), CPD points can be claimed by all visitors.

Matt Selby, Sales & Marketing Director for Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket (UK) Ltd said: “REPXPERT Academy LIVE is the perfect platform for technicians and garage owners to enhance their knowledge of the latest products, tools, hints and best practice tips from Schaeffler, with topics this time including LuK double clutch transmission systems and INA timing drive systems, including information on new technologies such as hybridisation and electrification”.

Several instructional and interactive group sessions will be held in both workshop and lecture room environments, incorporating demonstrations, hands-on participation, theory, and engagement – with each attendee having the opportunity to experience everything on offer during the day. They will also have the chance to interact with selected guests in the workshop hub at each event, including experts from the IMI, as well as garage service suppliers such as TechMan, Garage Services Online, and Laser Tools.

One of the two guest sessions at the event will be presented by well-respected workshop owner Tim Benson, who has been running the high-quality Oldfields Garage business in Leominster for many years and is now offering his unique brand of best practice business advice directly to industry professionals.

Schaeffler Marketing & Communication Manager, Jeff Earl said: “The Schaeffler team and our special guests are excited to be able to welcome technicians and garage owners to the fifth REPXPERT Academy Live roadshow at New City College in Hornchurch. As with all our past events, we expect the classrooms to be full and the workshop buzzing with delegates interacting with the guest presenters and taking the opportunity to network with like-minded workshop professionals.
