TMD Friction’s training team recently visited service charity, Mission Motorsport, to carry out its professional technical training programme, Mintex Masterclass, to students.
The programme is carried out in accordance with Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) criteria, with the team providing learners who are studying to achieve a Light Vehicle Level 3 qualification, with detailed braking best practice tips. TMD has confirmed that it will also conduct other training sessions throughout the year to further support the charity.
Launched in 2012, Mission Motorsport aids in the recovery and rehabilitation of those affected by military operations by providing opportunities through motorsport and the motorsport industry. As part of the MoD’s Career Transition Partnership, the charity helps those leaving the military to find employment in the automotive industry. An IMI training provider, Mission Motorsport’s training wing delivers a range of qualifications up to, and including, Level 3 Diploma courses and full apprenticeships, enabling service leavers to bridge the gap between military service and second careers as civilians. The charity issued 158 qualifications last year to more than 40 veterans and service leavers.
