Dani Rathke

I'm a qualified PCV engineer and electrician spending many years working on many makes of buses and PCV's, as well as periods with motor caravans and VW cars/vans.
I joined VOSA and worked as a Vehicle Inspector, moving up to Professional and Technical Officer in the Midlands, before becoming a Technical Trainer in VOSA's training services branch.
I was based in Avonmouth/Bristol Training Centre but also delivered at the Training Centre in Chadderton/Manchester or at customers premises.
I started VIATS in 2011 in order to ensure that the Haulage and Passenger Transport trade still got the relevant information and training they need.
I have a number of qualifications in vehicle repair and maintenance including being a fully qualified A1 assessor, and have delivered a range of different NVQ's.
in 2014 I also qualified as an IRTEC assessor.
I enjoy teaching and helping businesses keep compliant, which could be inspecting HGV/PCV or delivering the inspector courses to the industry.
I have been delivering as well as inspecting vehicles in Europe and the UK.

Chris Davis

I'm Chris, previously I was employed by DVSA as an MoT Technical Trainer until they closed the department. I worked for DVSA for 13 years firstly as a Vehicle Inspector, testing HGV and PSV then I moved up to PTO (like Dani) and joined the Training Department, delivering and developing the suite of training courses for MoT testers. I also had a spell on the MoT testing project when it moved from VTS devices to the new system.

Prior to that I have worked for Volvo, Citroen UK, VW, Hyundai Car UK, and some independent garages, having been employed as a service technician, MoT tester, workshop control, bodyshop technician, service management and technical trainer.

So all in all I've been involved with in the motor industry for over 30 years in some form.

All that said and done I still like "messing about with motors" but my passion is power boats.
