Former Motor Vehicle student Kevin Harris
Kevin Harris is carrying out a vital role maintaining ambulances across the West Midlands, after completing his Motor Vehicle qualifications at college.
The 21-year-old Fleet Mechanic said: “My dad was a mechanic and I wanted to follow in his footsteps, so started studying for my Entry Level Motor Vehicle qualification at college while I was still at school. After that I continued on to my full Level 1and Level 2 qualification before doing an apprenticeship.
“As a fleet mechanic, I fix ambulances from around the region. It’s a lot different from fixing cars in a garage – the ambulances have so many different systems in them I’m learning something new every day.
“It’s a really exciting job and I’m come so far since my Entry Level course all those years ago.”
