Although we have been involved in car repair for over 20 years. Never before has it been more important to attend training coures. The rate of technical change in car repair has been astonishing. We take training and development very seriously.

Bosch  Training Programme

Paul is currently attending a series of Bosch training courses. These courses are Provided by Andrew Page motor factors. The training is carried out at the Saturn training centre in Blackburn Lancs. The courses are delivered by Jeff Cook and the AP Tech training team. Each course lasts two days, and at the end of each course all candidates are tested. Passing this test allows you to attend the next course. Paul now has training booked  until spring 2009. This process will hopefully lead to Paul gaining Bosch Diagnostic Technician qualifications. 

Automotive Solutions NVQ Qualifications 

My son Josh is just finishing his second year of a three year college course. He started in the garage helping with servicing and small repairs. By working together side by side on a daily basis, his confidence and ability have grown. During the last two years he has taken on many complex and highly technical repairs. Just recently in the garage we had a 2003 Ford Mondeo. The car came to us after overheating on the motorway. Unfortunately the car needed a full engine rebuild. Josh carried out the repair in around three days including waiting time. He can be seen here replacing the pistons.

 Gently does it


Mondeo engine rebuild


The garage receives regular visits from Dave Whittam of Automotive solutions. Dave carries out assessments of Joshs progress. These assessments go towards Joshs NVQ qualification.
