Qualitrain and FER launch Training Partnership

Qualitrain is delighted to announce a new training partnership with the Federation of Engine Remanufacturers which will bring fabulous opportunities for training and upskilling to this niche market.

The Federation of Engine Remanufacturers, which can trace its origins back to 1937, is the  foremost trade organisation representing the interests of this very specific sector of the automotive industry. Its almost 150 member companies conform to a Code of Practice backed by a unique warranty scheme, making them the leading practitioners in the industry. The FER covers every aspect of internal combustion engine re-manufacturing including automotive, marine, HGV, rail traction, off-highway, racing and competition engines, and has influence at governmental level in issues surrounding the environment, recycling, employment and training.

In-depth discussions and trial training schemes have now enabled Qualitrain and the FER to agree a sole supplier agreement which will ultimately provide a series of bespoke training opportunities for FER members.

“Our work is highly specialised,” said FER board member Ken Worsdale, “and traditional college-based training programmes aimed at general automotive repair skills, do not meet our members’ needs. Qualitrain has the experience and expertise to work with us to deliver training packages which address our members unique requirements directly and we are very much looking forward to the benefits and opportunities this partnership will provide in the months and years ahead.”
