THE train to catch!

As trucks and vans and cars become more technologically advanced, we mere mortals are working hard to keep up, which is why staff training is so important.

January saw a wealth of knowledge flow into the RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) workshop with workshop technician Paul Higginbottom updating his skills in HV Transmissions, LCV Engine Technology and Fuel Systems; while Nick Tubby, a fellow workshop technician, took a two day course to increase his Electronics knowledge.

As the place to get Renault commercial vehicles in the East Midlands with territories extending across Nottingham, Leicester and Derby, it is important that any training reflects developments from Renault. RHCV invest both time and money in its staff and their training by sending them on courses at Renault Headquarters in Dunstable.

Stephen Astill, Dealer Point Manager at RHCV comments, “Training and training programmes add real value to our staff and our company, as it allows us to continue to compete in an ever evolving and developing marketplace. We not only value our existing staff by up skilling them, but our new generation of recruits are equally as important to us.”

The RHCV Leicester site now has two apprentices, with 17 year old Luke West of Anstey Heights, Leicester joining the team. He is in good company with fellow apprentice Jake Curtis who is now in his second year of being a workshop apprentice.

“I would like to welcome Luke to the team, and I look forward to working together with him to advance the parts department to the next level,” comments Stephen, “Luke’s joining the team means our Leicester branch has now grown to a healthy eight strong.”

Luke is a young man from the local community; he joins RHCV straight from education. Luke will train on the Parts Apprenticeship course, RHCV’s first recruit on the government training plan. Luke now has the great opportunity to learn and be involved in a vibrant and collective unit, and he is sure to progress and evolve his trade through RH Commercial Vehicles.
