Motor Vehicle trio wheel away to IMI Skill Auto Competition 2017

Three South Eastern Regional College (SERC) Motor Vehicle students, Gareth Rea, Glenn Palmer and Christie Boyle, will fly to the Volkswagen Group National Learning centre in Milton Keynes on 18 May for the National Qualifiers of the competition, which is part of World Skills UK.

The talented trio will be assessed on six tasks, designed to reflect the knowledge of technicians working towards, or at, a level 3 light vehicle vocational qualification.

The IMI Skill Auto competitions provide an opportunity for automotive technicians to demonstrate the technical skills required to be a successful modern day technician. Competitors are required to work on a selection of cars and components carrying out various tasks, which will test their skills and abilities.

  • Engine mechanical (petrol and diesel)
  • Engine electrical
  • Steering & suspension
  • Transmissions
