York acclaims top Tia technician

Tia Spriggs has become Inchcape’s first female master technician.

Based at York’s Jaguar dealership, the 29-year old technician who has worked for Inchcape Retail for four years has just passed her Level 4 Technician Certificate with Jaguar Land Rover, meaning she is now qualified to work at the highest level, diagnosing and repairing the most complex mechanical and electrical automotive problems.

Alex Merricks, Inchcape franchise director Jaguar Land Rover, said, ‘Tia is our first female technician to achieve Level 4 accreditation for both Inchape and Jaguar Land Rover, so this is an incredible achievement.’

Meanwhile, Stuart Hobbs, a technician at Inchcape’s Porsche Centre, has joined an elite group within the automotive industry by achieving Porsche Gold Technician status, the highest-ranking Porsche certification.

Tony Gorrighan, Inchcape’s franchise director for VW and Porsche, said, ‘Porsche Gold Technician certification is rarely achieved first time and is literally like gold dust. To have reached this level in just two years is a real testament to Stuart’s hard work and determination. We are extremely proud to have such talented technician working in our team.’
