Two technicians from a Chester car retailer are celebrating reaching the top of their profession.

Chris Dutton (30), from Blacon, and Dave Clarke (29), from Ewloe, have just gained their ‘advanced technical repairer’ qualifications – making them amongst the most qualified Volkswagen technicians in the country.

Both work at Dane Volkswagen on Sealand Road and after starting as apprentice technicians at 16 have progressed quickly through Volkswagen’s training programmes.

Delighted Chris said: “It’s really rewarding to know I have reached the top of my profession.

“It’s been a lot of hard work but both Dave and I have both been fully supported by Dane and couldn’t have got this far without them.”

Chris and Dave can now carry out the most complicated technical repair work on all Volkswagen vehicles and make the most difficult diagnoses. They will also mentor junior members of staff at the retailer.

Dave, who has worked for Dane Chester since he was 19, said: “I have loved my time working here and aimed to progress to an advanced technical repairer since joining; so I am really happy to have made it.

“I also hope it will shows the younger technicians that it can be done and the hard work is worth it.”
