Vivo Energy Uganda has announced the launch of the second edition of the Shell Master Mechanics programmethat will offer free training clinics and incentives nationwide for mechanics.
“The Master Mechanics programme is running for the second year, since its launch in 2018 and will work towards ensuring mechanics nationwide have the right skillset and knowledge to carry out their jobs. This course content has been carefully selected by our team of capable mechanicswho have years of experience and invaluable expertise in this area,” said Alex Tusingwire, Lubricants Brand Manager at Vivo Energy Uganda.
Under the Master Mechanics programme 2019, mechanicswill stand a chance to win cash prizes, brand new motorbikes and a business start-up with lubricants worth five million Uganda shillings for the grand prize. All that mechanics have to do is try Shell Motor oils and participate in the mechanics Yoola Cash incentive platform for a chance to win big. The Shell Master Mechanics incentives are valid for Shell Helix, Shell Rimula, Shell Advance, Shell Coolant and Shell Brake Fluid.
“Many mechanics across the country are self-taught or have picked up their knowledge over time through on-the-job learning. This has resulted in some knowledge gaps and generational myths concerning oil and engine maintenance. Therefore, mechanics across the country have a big opportunity to ask, learn and be upskilled through the master mechanics programme,” said Chairman Bukulu, a senior mechanic and trainer on the Master Mechanic Programme.
“In a market where consumers rely on mechanics to look after their cars, it’s important that mechanics have the capability to diagnose and fix most problems with automobiles on the road today. To be a successful auto repair technician, a mechanic needs to have a broad knowledge base on lubricants and engine technology,” said Alvin Bamutire, Lubricants Sales Manager at Vivo Energy.
The Master Mechanics programme 2019 is slated to run over the next two months and is open to all automotive mechanics.
