The most recent edition of AutoInsider saw a new focus on preparation for MOT training courses.
Although delegates at the Andrew Page-backed event at Sandown Park still had the usual meet and greet with suppliers, the highlight of the show was a seminar theatre which hosted an explanation of the new requirements for authorised examiners.
Paul Hall, Group Training Manager at Andrew Page, said: “People have heard so many rumours about how to go about undergoing MOT tester training”.
“The reason we put on the seminar here today was to set the record straight about what is happening and what we can do for the industry”.
Aside from the forum, key suppliers including Bosch, TRW, Mann Filter and Unipart were on hand to explain their wares. Under the theme ‘Tomorrow’s Garage Today’, tool makers and parts suppliers put on a show that related to modernising the workshop. “Whenever we do something like this, it’s always a success to talk with customers, key managers, people from supply chains and spend quality time with customers outside of the garage” said Rebecca Leigh Regional Sales Manager for Andrew Page.
