Forte steps in to solve skills shortage

Well documented fears of skills shortages in the industry have prompted Forte Lubricants to sponsor basic training in the use of diagnostic equipment for independent vehicle technicians.

The Saturday morning courses, run in association with aftermarket training specialist Eric Mitchell, include hands-on demonstrations of how to detect engine problems. Each course is charged out at a nominal £30 plus VAT per person and will be held at garage workshops in the north and south of England.

Forte's technical trouble-shooter Martin Morris is involved in the series to offer advice on the latest contamination issues and how to solve them through the use of petro-chemical treatments.

“There are thousands of technicians up and down the country who are surrounded by diagnostic equipment they have had no training in,” says Morris. “The courses should pay for themselves as, apart from the quality of and depth of tuition, each person will be given a problem solving package.”

Forte is offering places on a first come, first served basis and is taking bookings now. Contact Rachel Roberts on 024 7647 4069 for details.
