A TECHNICIAN at Inchcape’s Porsche Centre in Portsmouth has joined an elite group within the automotive industry after gaining Gold Technician status.
Stuart Hobbs has worked for Inchcape Retail UK for just over two and half years and has successfully achieved the highest-ranking Porsche certification after mastering every element of diagnostics and repair, as well as completing practical exams under real conditions.
There are only a few qualified Porsche Gold Technicians in the country, and Hobbs, who is 27 and from Portsmouth, achieved his Gold Technician award in just two years, passing the exams first time.
Tony Gorrighan, Inchcape’s franchise director for VW and Porsche, said: ‘Porsche Gold Technician certification is rarely achieved first time and is literally like gold dust. To have reached this level in just two years is a real testament to Stuart’s hard work and determination. We are extremely proud to have such a talented technician working in our team.’
