FTA sponsors IRTE Conference for third year
Tuesday 23 August 2016
The Freight Transport Association (FTA) is sponsoring the Institute of Road Transport Engineers (IRTE) Conference next month for the third year running, celebrating the ongoing partnership between the two organisations.
FTA is the exclusive provider of IRTE Workshop Accreditation audits and is a market leader in delivery of irtec Inspection Technician courses. FTA is also piloting a new course for workshop engineering managers aimed at developing the careers of high-level technicians, workshop supervisors and fleet engineering managers.
Lawrie Alford, FTA Head of Automotive, said: “This year the focus will be IRTE Workshop Accreditation, irtec licencing, technical training for technicians and the very popular Workshop Engineering Manager Training Course including the promotion of individual CPD.
“FTA is committed to highlight the very real need to attract school and college leavers to our industry – reviewing apprenticeship standards and options for young people to succeed within our profession is key to keep modern vehicles moving. The advances of new technology can be challenging for many workshops, but this technology also provides an exciting opportunity for new entrants into transport and logistics.”
The conference takes place on 28 September at Eastwood Hall, Nottingham. Full details are available at http://www.irte-conference.co.uk
