Classic Car Restoration Show

June 13, 2018

Waterford Wexford Training Services (part of WWETB) are holding their 2nd Classic Car Restoration Show on Saturday 16th of June at 10am to 1.00pm at the Waterford Training Centre, Waterford Industrial Park, X91 PX02.

The showcase is a celebration of Classic Cars. It is also a showcase of work by the course participants who have taken part in either the Classic Car Restoration day course or evening courses at the WWETB Waterford Training Centre.

The course was initially launched in 2016 at the Waterford Training Centre part of Waterford Wexford Education and Training Board (WWETB and it is the only course of its kind in the entire country.)
 
The course offers the course participants a recognised qualification. To date over 50 people have taken part and gained qualifications in Classic Car Restoration. The course participants are from a wide geographical spread across the Southeast and from Dublin to Cork to gain the qualification. The youngest learner to date was 19 and the eldest was 72, people participate in this course for all manner of reasons, some are fully qualified mechanics and they wish to add this City & Guilds qualification to their existing skillset and some course participants take part in the course to develop a new skillset in the motor industry. 

On Saturday the latest course Classic Car Restoration participants will be awarded with their graduation certificates at the Waterford Training Centre.

The Classic Car Show is open to the public free of charge from 10 am on the morning of Saturday, June 16th where visitors to the centre can expect to see a variety of 40 different classic and vintage cars on display along with an ability to gain an insight to the course workings and meet the trainer and course participants in the classic car restoration workshop.
