TIP Mechanics Academy

AMSTERDAM, June 1st, 2023 – TIP Group, a leading truck and trailer service provider, is launching a brand new Academy to educate trailer mechanics. The TIP Mechanic Academy will launch in Canada, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, and the UK this autumn and in Germany early 2024.

The TIP Mechanic Academy will be the first of its kind in the transportation industry, with trainees becoming TIP certified trailer mechanics in nine months. Additionally, trainees will receive a full package of salary and benefits relevant to their experience level when they join.

The TIP Mechanic Academy is open to individuals who are passionate about pursuing a technician career in the transportation industry. The program covers a wide range of topics, including trailer maintenance, diagnostics, repair, and safety. Trainees will also receive practical training in TIP's state-of-the-art facilities, working on real trailers under the guidance of experienced mechanic mentors.

Combining instructor-lead, e-learning and hands-on training, trainees will have the chance to learn from TIP experts and immediately bring what they learn into practice. The training program will be limited to eight to twelve trainees per class, ensuring trainees will get the attention they deserve. TIP is committed to providing ongoing career development opportunities for its employees, and graduates of the TIP Mechanic Academy will have access to further training and advancement within the organization, either as a workshop supervisor/manager, or a technician. On successful completion of the Academy all trainees will also be offered the opportunity to join the annual global Mechanic Team Competition, where the talent and expertise of mechanics are celebrated and rewarded with finals being held in Valencia!

“Mechanics are the unsung heroes of our industry, and we rely on them to serve our customers and keep their fleet on the road. The TIP Mechanic Academy is a great opportunity to attract new talent, and the fast track learning ensures trainees get to put their new knowledge into practice in just nine months and receive renumeration.” says Hiske Damhuis, Chief Human Resource Officer.
