A Crewe car technician is celebrating reaching the top of his profession after qualifying from a national programme.

Artur Ziminski (29) recently gained his master technician status after joining Crewe Volkswagen four years ago and working his way through the Volkswagen Academy training programme.
Now one of the UK’s top Volkswagen technicians, he will pass on his experience to the Weston Road site’s apprentice technicians.

Artur qualified with a masters degree in car technology in his native Poland before emigrating to England in 2006. It usually takes six years to complete a master technician qualification, but Artur managed to do it in just over three years.

He said: “I am over the moon to I have reached the top of my profession and it’s extremely rewarding to know I can now pass on my knowledge and experience to the next generation of technicians.

“I’m very grateful to Crewe Volkswagen for giving me the chance to prove my worth, believing in me and for investing in my training.”

Crewe Volkswagen’s after sales manager, Jo Hardy, said: “Artur is thoroughly professional in his job and this qualification is reward for his efforts.

“He’s hard working and very intelligent. The apprentices at Crewe are lucky to have a technician of his calibre teaching them.

“It costs approximately £100,000 for a technician to reach master technician status, but Artur is worth every penny.”
