IRTE Ireland North Centre rewards outstanding students

23rd Feb 2017
Ireland North

Local students were recognised for their outstanding achievements in the road transport industry at the IRTE Ireland North Centre.

The annual event, organised by education officer Basil Barnes, is designed to show how local engineers are driving the industry forward with their knowledge and competence.

With vehicle technology advancing at such pace, it is important for such events to demonstrate how schools and colleges play such an important role in developing young engineers.

Sgt Lawrence Speer from PSNI Collison Investigation Unit was the speaker for the evening, and described with great clarity how his team worked, after being introduced by immediate past chairman Trevor Hassin.

Honorary President Sam Patterson then began the awards ceremony, before a light supper was provided by Transport Training Services, who hosted the evening.
