When it comes to training, there is no substitute for face-to-face interaction and the in-depth understanding that comes from seeing a demonstration in action – which is why MIWA Western Cape was so excited to host its first in-person technical training workshop in two years.
The workshop, which was hosted at Goch and Copper Auto Services, focused on the importance of engine measuring, what to measure, the basic tools required, and how measurement enhances professionalism when supplying customers with a build certificate. Workshop participants received a training manual containing all relevant information, including the specific criteria required to record measurement.
MIWA Western Cape Regional Chairperson, Deon Goch, said that the session was highly successful, and is likely to be repeated in view of requests from members to do so. MIWA Western Cape is also looking to investigate other relevant topics: the next session is set to focus on measuring cylinder blocks, followed by a session on crankshafts and conrods. These workshops are an invaluable source of information, helping members upskill their staff and enhance their business efficiency – which ultimately leads to greater profits. With this in mind, Goch urges all members to attend workshops whenever possible.
The event was recorded by Keegan Goch (Deon and Karen’s son), and the recording will be made available to all MIWA members who were unable to attend the session.
A big thank you to Deon and Karen Goch for the use of their venue and all their help and support, as well as SBB Machine Tools for creating an impressive display of engine measuring tools.
