South West College Appointed BPW Northern Ireland-based Training Centre

Further to the successful partnership with Glasgow-based GTG Training, BPW has now partnered with South West College (SWC), Omagh. This appointment ensures that BPW customers in Northern Ireland now have local access to the same level of training offered by BPW engineers at the Head Office in Leicester.

SWC will provide BPW’s in-depth training course throughout the year which covers several modules. These include the patented BPW ECO Hub Systems, drum and disc technology as well as the BPW range of suspension systems.

In following BPW’s certified training programme, technicians will have to meet exacting standards. As part of this co-operation, SWC has ready access to all the essentials: everything it needs in terms of working exhibits and kits for hands-on classroom training, which is an essential part of this two-day course.

Pat O’Hanlon, Head of School, Automotive, Computing and Engineering, SWC said, “We are delighted to have been chosen by BPW to deliver heavy axle maintenance training for BPW’s learners across Ireland. We are confident it will offer a more easily accessible training venue for BPW’s Ireland-based trainees. Our SWC trainers have been comprehensively trained by BPW’s own expert instructors, while BPW have also supplied us with all axles and training resources.”

The first BPW Axle and Suspension Service and Maintenance Training Course takes place January 23 & 24. For more information on the course and future dates scheduled at SWC, Omagh, please contact Joshua.Semple@swc.ac.uk or call 07811275325.
