Skills paramount says Brian Robson Coachworks
A number of the team at Brian Robson Coachworks have successfully completed the latest round of skills development training in order to maintain their industry accreditations for collision repair and damage assessment.
Pictured left to right outside our recently re-branded reception area in St Albans are: Dean Marshall, BRC’s Operations Manager with technicians Adam Dean and Paul Lloyd and vehicle damage assessor, Darren Needham.
At Brian Robson Coachworks, our priority is to ensure that every car is returned to its pre-accident condition. For over 40 years, we have built an award-winning business on the principle of ensuring we continually invest in skills training and equipment, which reflects the advancing technology in vehicle manufacture.
Cars are highly complex pieces of precision engineering, featuring a myriad of cutting-edge materials, including Ultra Hard Stainless Steels (UHSS), aluminium, titanium and increasingly, carbon fibre. As such, the task of repairing collision-damaged vehicles requires an extremely sophisticated process involving a blend of skills and materials.
Qualifying as a body repair technician requires many years of training, first through an apprenticeship but then keeping up-to-date, which is essential. At Brian Robson Coachworks in St Albans and Welwyn Garden City, all its technicians undergo Continuing Professional Development (CPD), which is a pre-requisite for the company to maintain the BSI Kitemark™ for Vehicle Damage Repair.
Modern body repair equipment is complex and also critical to ensure the best repair. Brian Robson Coachworks is continually investing in the latest state-of-the-art tooling and machinery to ensure it stays ahead of the curve.
In our 40-year experience, employees who are supported in their learning and encouraged to stay at the top of their game are more fulfilled and deliver the highest performance. That’s probably one reason why we have a number of staff who’ve served the business for over twenty years.
All BRC’s panel and paint technicians and vehicle damage assessors hold the national IMI Accreditation, governed by the Institute of the Motor Industry, which requires renewal every three years.
As well as further improving our core skills, individual achievements have included a range of supplementary national qualifications and professional recognition, all of which help to elevate Brian Robson Coachworks’ reputation as a collision repair specialist in St Albans and Welwyn that’s second to none.
