Schaeffler REXPERT has announced that its REPXPERT Academy LIVE will return after a hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The first event of the season will roll into the STEAM Academy at Bridgend College’s Pencoed campus on Saturday 21st May. Visitors will be able to learn about the latest technologies, tools, and product installation skills from the Schaeffler REPXPERT team, in four 45-minute training sessions.
Each session has been designed to offer garage owners and professional technicians a taster of the complete one or two-day IMI certified training packages available from Schaeffler directly, or through its distribution partners. Even though they are ‘taster’ sessions, they are said to be packed full of valuable tips, tricks, and best practice advice, so IMI members can still claim CPD points for a full day of training.
Schaeffler will be offering an introduction to LuK Double Clutch Systems, as well as a Timing Belt Workshop from Tim Adams – with the alternative title of ‘How to avoid expensive mistakes!’.
Local garage owner, Hayley Pells of Avia Autos, will also be supporting the event, as well as hosting a training session on ‘Pathway to EV’. It is hoped this will be a draw for many workshops looking to invest in the infrastructure they may need to undertake EV servicing and repairs. Another local garage owner, Tim Benson, will be the second guest presenter, with a workshop business masterclass.
During the breaks, the workshop becomes the focus, where visitors can browse the Laser tools display, chat with garage management system suppliers TechMan, check out the latest from braking specialists Brembo, or visit the REPXPERT van to learn more about the award-winning technical platform.
Entry to REPXPERT Academy LIVE is free of charge and includes complimentary breakfast, lunch, and refreshments throughout. Doors open at 9am, with training starting at 10am, and the event will draw to a close at around 4pm.
