Bosch congratulates Top Technician Shaun Miller and runner up Matthew Pestridge
Aftermarket’s Top Technician competition has named Shaun Miller as winner of the competition, after he was runner up last year. Open to independent, fast fit and franchised dealer technicians, the competition is designed to pit technician against technician in a number of challenges that test their knowledge and skills.
Bosch trained technician Shaun Miller from Millers Garage in Newbury, which has been a Bosch Car Service (BCS) workshop since 2011, won the competition by showing his top diagnostic skills in a range of tough fault finding tasks. The win comes following his top performance in the 2017 competition, where he was named as runner-up.
Shaun Miller, Workshop Manager at Millers Garage said: “I am so delighted to be Top Technician 2018. Half a lifetime has gone into this achievement, since I first started in the industry. I have spent my career trying to learn more and so have invested my time in training courses with Bosch, which I know aided in my diagnostic skills. I wanted to win Top Technician since I first heard about it seven years ago, and now I have. It’s amazing to have this trophy.”
Ian Daly, Workshop Channel Marketer for Bosch Car Service, UK said: “Bosch Car Service workshops benefit from access to Bosch training, and we encourage technicians to upskill and continue to stay ahead of the game. Congratulations go to Shaun for doing such a great job in a very difficult competition, we are delighted to have him and Millers Garage as part of the Bosch Car Service network.”
This was not the only success for a BCS workshop as Bosch trained Matthew Pestridge, from D&D Autos in Ashford, Kent, was named runner-up for the 2018 competition.
Matthew Pestridge commented: “I am so pleased to have got as far as I did with the Top Technician competition. I pride myself in my diagnostic skills, which was boosted through the training I received through Bosch. It was these skills that I thought got me as far as I did. While it would have been great to win, I am so proud to have got the runner-up position, especially as it was against tough competition this year.”
