At selected locations, a professional trainer will be conducting ‘live’ training sessions to help mechanics from Shell Advance’s network of partner workshops to upgrade their knowledge and expertise.

The training is part of the exclusive Shell Advance Masterclass series that guide mechanics on how to properly maintain nine key components of a motorcycle.

Registered mechanics who successfully complete the entire eight modules by September 30, 2017 will be incentivised with two tickets to the 2017 Shell Malaysia MotoGP and certification from Shell Malaysia.

According to Shell Lubricants Marketing Manager – Malaysia and Singapore, Alex Lim, the company planned to help upgrade the skills of almost 2,400 mechanics, many of whom were self-taught or learned on the job.

“As the lubricant market and technology leader, we at Shell believe that our investment in this programme would benefit the entire value chain as it creates a pool of professionally trained and certified mechanics.

Bikers will enjoy better service, workshop owners can grow their business through better customer satisfaction and the mechanics themselves can look forward to more rewarding careers,” he said.
