Brake awards IRTE
IRTE’s technician licensing scheme for the road transport industry, irtec, has been recognised in road safety charity Brake’s Fleet Safety Awards. The organisation is an advocate of rigorous vehicle maintenance, including the training and qualification of vehicle technicians and irtec was highly commended in Brake’s Safe Vehicles Award.
Professional Engagement Manager at Brake, Roslyn Cumming, said, ‘Brake congratulates IRTE on their highly commended award entry in the Safe Vehicles Category. Their work to raise and maintain quality standards for technicians is absolutely crucial to improving the safety of large commercial and passenger-carrying vehicle fleets, and to protecting all road users from the devastation caused by preventable crashes caused by improperly maintained vehicles.’
