McGill’s engineers receive industry accreditation
The Traffic Commissioner for Scotland, Joan Aitken, has presented CPT’s Bus & Coach Engineering Manager Accreditation to six of the McGill’s Buses team. Designed by CPT in conjunction with People 1st, the accreditation, assesses bus and coach Engineering Managers against a series of new professional standards, whilst allowing them to demonstrate they have the necessary skills and attributes to carry out the important role.
The McGill’s employees who passed the extensive two-day assessment carried out by CPT’s Compliance Partner, Lloyd Morgan Group, are: Engineering Managers Alan Hewitt, James McLellan, Mark Hill and Marc Wilson; Engineering Quality Standards Manager, Robert Larkins and Chief Engineer, Grant Pirie.
Speaking at CPT Scotland’s Annual Conference in Loch Lomond where the presentations took place, McGill’s Chief Engineer, Grant Pirie said: ‘Both individually and as a team we are delighted and extremely proud to have achieved this industry accreditation. As Chief Engineer I was keen to get my Engineering Managers involved in the process at a grass roots level in order to ensure that we continue to progress, develop and improve together as a team. It was also great to learn that we are the first group of bus engineers in Scotland to have achieved the accreditation, and it’s a real honour for McGill’s too.’
