The 2016 Top Technician Live was deemed a success following a full day of training which took place at GTG West Midlands.
The event saw attendees take part in both practical and classroom demonstrations, before Matthew Eeles was revealed as the Top Technician 2016 winner. Live closed with a James Dillon Masterclass where he explained why proper diagnostics is a better tool than simply ‘firing the parts cannon’.
Speakers at the event included 2013 winner Steve Smith discussing scoping techniques, 2015 runner-up Peter Melville representing Snap-on on their new diagnostic kit, Terry Gibson of the RMI discussing the connected car, and Paul Gannon representing Euro Car Parts talking about hybrid and electric vehicle maintenance.
During the lunch break, visitors were also able to see the latest kit from Ring Automotive, as well as products from Snap-on, Euro Car Parts and were able to discuss recruitment and staff cover services with AutoTech Recruit in the exhibition area.
