Want to be paid to learn how to become a qualified motorcycle technician? Or know someone who does? Then let them know that applications are now open for the 2018 Triumph Advanced Apprentice Programme. And with 12 places available across the UK, no-one will want to miss the August 31st deadline.
The course will take a total of three years, working in an authorised Triumph dealership alongside the experienced staff. And the apprentices will learn theoretical and practical skills from routine maintenance to servicing and fault diagnosis.
As well as working in a Triumph dealership, you’ll also be attending the purpose-built training facility at the Leicestershire headquarters to learn even more. Over the three years, you’ll spend a total of 17 weeks split across three blocks – presumably once a year. So it’s basically an annual trip to the delights of Hinckley to find out more about how to build, fix and maintain Triumph motorcycles. But in addition to your wage as an apprentice, you’ll also get holiday pay. So you won’t just be looking forward to a training centre in Leicestershire each year.
The end result is that three years of full-time employment will give you a recognised qualification in motorcycle maintenance. Some of the Triumph dealers with places available across the UK are Webbs of Peterborough, Bridge Motorcycles in Exeter, Triumph Plymouth, Norfolk Triumph and Lings Motorcycles in Ipswich.
Michael Niblett, After Sales Manager, Triumph Motorcycles UK & Ireland, said: “This is a fantastic way to get young people into the motorcycle industry. By handing the best talent in the country over to our experienced staff, we give them a fantastic grounding in motorcycle maintenance and a foundation for a great career. We look forward to welcoming the latest intake to our dealers across the country from September 2018.”
The deadline for applications is August 31st, 2018. But you’ll probably want to get started a bit earlier to try to claim one of the 12 places. And you don’t have to be under a certain age or studying to apply. The website for the 2018 Triumph Advanced Apprentice Programme asks for an interest in the motorcycle industry and Triumphs. Plus the ability to work as part of a team and be interested in computers and vehicle technology. And a willingness to provide excellent customer service and study hard.
The only qualifications listed as required as A-C grades in Maths, English and Science, but lower grades may be considered. You can find out more and apply on the Triumph Apprentice Programme website.
