Apprentice Technician of the Year 2021 finalists

Here are bodyshop magazine’s 2021 Powered by Vizion bodyshop Remit Apprentice Technician of the Year finalists who will be celebrated when the winners are announced at the bodyshop Awards on 7 April this year.

These groups of talented apprentices competed over three weeks in September at Remit Training in Derby, where their knowledge and skills were put to the test during a series of challenging tasks, all closely assessed by four independent judges from Remit.

The winners in each of these three categories will be unveiled during the bodyshop Awards 2021, which will take place at ICC Wales in April.
