According to Michael Coman, Vehicle Restoration Course Tutor at Leeds City College, “By looking carefully at the methods of delivery on our full-time (three days per week mon, tue, wed) course we are able to announce that the course fees will drop… The course will still cover the three main areas of restoration (body repair and welding, paint and mechanics) and will run for the whole academic year starting from September 2012.”
All of which means that this is an exciting opportunity to enter the classic car sector, a sector of the motor industry which has boomed despite the global slump.
Coman added, “We need people to register their interest in this course as soon as possible and would ask them to contact the college via email or phone as quickly as they can. Contact details for the course are: firstname.lastname@example.org and tel 0113 386 1950. If phoning just ask the admin staff for details of the full time restoration course.
