Federation Skills Zone at Practical Classics show
The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs and Federation Skills Trust are working with In-Comm to create the new Federation Skills Zone at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show at the NEC, Birmingham on 18-20 March.
The new zone has been established ot encourage more enthusiasts into the historic vehicle industry and fill the gap for the number of apprentices needed.
David Whale, Chairman of the FBHVC, explains: ‘The objective is to give enthusiasts visiting the show the chance to learn from the professionals who train apprentices and other young people.
‘As well as meeting and speaking with lecturers from In-Comm Training, they can learn how to measure bore size and check valve clearances on an MG Magnette cylinder block and head. They can examine examples of core engineering skills, such as turned and milled components, or examples of welds in three types of material.’
