Following the success of its training seminars at Automechanika Birmingham, the TecAlliance is furthering its education role by providing user packages to schools and colleges of its renowned TecDoc CATALOG system and TecRMI technical service.
Ashington High School in Northumberland has become the latest educational establishment to benefit from this. Liaising with the school’s IT & Media team, TecAlliance has provided the school, which is committed to developing its students and equipping them for the opportunities in the workplace, with access to TecDoc, Europe’s leading parts information and data identification system for both passenger car and commercial vehicle applications. Alongside TecDoc, the students also have access to TecRMI, which provides comprehensive service and repair data that covers repair instructions and procedures, as well as fault finding information and labour times.
“This initiative, which complements the formal IT training offered by our colleagues in Germany, is intended to help young people understand the complexities of the supply side of the automotive industry and see the opportunities it offers them, the next generation of the industries workforce,” explained Shaun Greasley, General Manager for TecAlliance in the UK and Ireland. He added, “It’s our view that allowing young people to gain some experience of the supply side of the aftermarket and best practice aspects of service and repair as part of their general education, is an effective way of challenging the stereotypical attitude that many people have towards our industry, as there are simply not enough young people coming in.”
