Ian Chisholm of IRTE’s umbrella organisation SOE said: “With advancements in modern vehicle technology there is a real need for the skill sets of technicians to evolve. The vehicle technician of the future will need to fully understand diagnostic computer systems. This conference will act as a forum for discussing challenges currently facing the industry and developments needed within technician training and assessment.”
