City and Guilds Success for Vacu-Lug

Grantham based retreader Vacu-Lug has been entering candidates for the RMA’s City & Guilds examinations for Part 1 Retread Workshop Practice for many years and has reported considerable success for the ten candidates it entered in this year’s examination, in particular for Jason Humphries, who not only achieved a Distinction pass, but was awarded the highest mark throughout the UK.

There were also two Credit passes awarded to Dave Alsop and Elaine Dable.

The City and Guilds Part 1 Retread Workshop Practice qualification consists of two mock examinations prior to the final examination.
