Autotech Training expands into Northern Ireland

Autotech Training has appointed Dasos Michaelides as head of business development for Ireland.

The newly-created role will support the company’s continued growth in the region.

In his new role, Michaelides will initially head up the roll-out of electric/hybrid courses across Northern Ireland along with IMI accredited Air-Conditioning courses, REACT and the NTDA’s Responsible Tyre Repair Technician (RTRT) accreditation.

Delivering training on the premises of garages and organisations across the country will significantly cut the time away from business for delegates, while cutting the cost of travel and expenses.

Michaelides said: “Throughout my career I have been dedicated to helping automotive businesses stay at the forefront of change and innovation. As the electric vehicle revolution has continued, I have been working with clients to future-proof their businesses and there are many parallels between my experience and what Autotech Training offers.”

Colin Gleghorn, managing director of Autotech Training, said: “We are delighted to welcome Dasos to the Autotech Training team. His incredible knowledge and experience within Northern Ireland and the automotive sector will not only help us roll out our offering, but ensure that vehicle technicians and anyone working with, or around electric and hybrid vehicles are trained to do so safely. Dasos’ ability to keep the customer front and central in everything that he does matches our business approach, and we are very much looking forward to seeing how our work with him progresses in the future.”
