Certificate course for engine reconditioning at Motorservice

The Verband der Motoren-Instandsetzungsbetriebe e. V. (Association of Engine Reconditioning Companies, VMI) offers its members a comprehensive course which allows skilled workers to considerably expand their specialist knowledge surrounding engine reconditioning. At the end of the multiple-module course, participants will receive a certificate after passing an exam; the certificate evidences their high qualification level. One of the training modules took place on 24-25 January 2019 at MS Motorservice International GmbH in Neuenstadt.

There are considerable requirements for professional engine reconditioning – a number of skills and expertise in the areas of error diagnosis, repairs and reconditioning are needed. This is because there is a great variety of design solutions when it comes to engine components, which are also constantly undergoing further development. These must be reliably recognised and assessed for their typical damage behaviour, as this is the only way that correct reconditioning is possible – it is therefore a complex subject area, requiring a high level of training. Participants who have registered for the course range from experienced engine reconditioners, to lateral entrants, all the way to entry-level workers from various member companies of the VMI.

Know-how from the expert
Module 1 started things off in November 2018 at Briggs & Stratton Germany in Viernheim. Over the course of three days, theoretical knowledge transfer as well as practical demonstrations and damage analyses were carried out by skilled specialists. Module 2 followed on 24-25 January, with the main topic of "engine parts". Together with the participants, Reiner Holwein, technical trainer at Motorservice, dove deep into the subject matter of engine parts, drawing from his rich knowledge base built up from nearly 20 years as a service trainer. He was also available to answer numerous questions about the characteristics and error patterns of pistons, cylinders and valves etc. In any case, the active interest and strong participation made for compelling evidence of the importance of the course – the VMI has undoubtedly struck a chord with its members.   

The third series of seminars on the subject of turbochargers and other assembly groups has been planned for 11-12 April 2019 at Motair Turbolader GmbH in Cologne.
