The business have a fantastic training facility and links with a local college to provide specific product training. To start with all new Engineers would start in the workshop learning the wide variety of products and systems they produce, how to strip down and rebuild the various systems, plus fault finding and repair. Once trained there would be a gradual shift from workshop to field, with the Service Engineers eventually being 100% field based once competent.
