19th May 2021

Brand new industry-standard equipment has arrived at Stratford-upon-Avon College to add to the College’s already impressive Motor Vehicle facilities.

The new equipment, a Hunter four-wheel alignment machine, will allow students to set and adjust the geometry on a range of cars, from very basic to high-end vehicles.

Hunter is considered the best in alignment equipment. Head of School for Motor Vehicle at the College, Alan Downing, comments: “Our learners will be trained on industry equipment to industry standards. This addition will also ensure learners have confidence in geometry checks when in industry. The Hunter Pro-Align systems are used in all professional automotive garages.”

Lecturer Jonathan Taylor adds: “This is going to give our learners real-world experience and ensure they are able to carry out a task which may be a daily task in most garages.”

Excited to see the Hunter machine being delivered and set up at the College, student Dominik Lenczuk says: “It’s nice to see that the College are investing in the latest equipment, preparing me for the world of work and supporting me with new technology.”

The College’s motor vehicle department has grown in recent years and has benefited with links to merger partner Solihull College & University Centre’s Woodlands Campus, ensuring students at both colleges are kept up to date with the latest industry trends such as hybrid technology.
