Schaeffler has announced it will be accepting registrations for the next REPXPERT Academy LIVE event, due to be held at Blackpool and The Fylde College on Saturday 20th June.
This will be the third-running of the roadshow, created to educate workshop owners and technicians on the latest Schaeffler technical training modules, covering timing belt drive best practice, an introduction to double clutch repairs and modern thermal management systems – all in 45-minute segments.
REPXPERT Academy LIVE also provides a business element; the first two events showcased REPXPERT Brand Ambassador and The Garage Inspector, Andy Savva, who delivered a session on how owners can ‘empower their business’.
For the Blackpool event, however, Schaeffler has secured the services of Hayley Pells, Owner of Automechanika Garage of the Year, Avia Sports Cars, who will be presenting a session on the hottest topic of the moment: electric vehicles (EV).
Hayley will be discussing how to operate a successful EV and hybrid workshop, along with best practice and safety requirements.
Outside of the classroom, there will also be plenty for visitors to sample, with a host of guest exhibitors, as well as displays from Schaeffler, the Institute of the Motor Industry and Blackpool and The Fylde College.
As always, entry to REPXPERT Academy LIVE is free of charge, with every visitor offered complimentary breakfast, lunch and refreshments throughout the day. Doors open for registration at 8am, with the event due to end at around 3pm.
The Schaeffler REPXPERT Academy team has said it is acutely aware of the COVID-19 outbreak and government guidelines currently in-place. It has said it is in continuous dialogue with the host venue, and at present, is continuing to prepare for REPXPERT Academy LIVE as normal.
The health and wellbeing of staff and visitors is of the utmost importance to Schaeffler and it has stated that if current government guidelines are extended beyond the planned event date then the event will be cancelled.
However, if rules regarding free movement and social distancing are relaxed, then the event will go ahead with all necessary provisions and precautions taken to ensure that everyone enjoys the day in a safe environment.
Schaeffler will continue to provide updates via both the automotive trade media and on REPXPERT, Schaeffler’s workshop portal.
