Licensed to repair . . . in a UTC

A group of computer science students at Watford University Technical College (UTC) have turned into tech wizards who can do their own laptop and tablet repairs.

The learners completed the Toshiba self-maintainer programme, which means they can now work out technological faults, select the spare parts required, and carry out warranty repairs in-house.

The school says the course also helped the students to gain “inventory management experience, added technology expertise and a variety of additional transferrable skills”.

Principal Emma Loveland says: “This is an excellent practical hands-on experience for our IT students, helping them to build valuable skills for the future.”

The accreditation lasts for one year and can be updated with a refresher course.
