National Caravan Council (NCC) Training Academy Certification in Electrical Testing and Inspection.
Under UK legislation, persons working with electricity must be instructed or skilled. This NCC electrical maintenance, Test & Inspection, course has been designed to cover the relevant skills that will provide a caravan service technician, the level of competence appropriate to carry out electrical work on touring caravans and motorhomes. The course is considered the minimum standard for anyone working on electrical systems within the caravan industry as a service technician.
National Caravan Council (NCC) Training Academy Certification in Electrical Systems and Circuits.
This course expands upon the skill base of the technician who has completed the Electrical Testing and Inspection Course and allows them to safely and competently carry out a wider scope of electrical work as part of a touring caravan or motorhome service. It is described as Advanced Electrical Training for Caravan and Motorhome Service Technicians.
UK Regulations require all persons working with gas to either be instructed (supervised) or skilled (unsupervised and qualified to sign off gas work).
This qualification was formally known as ACoPs (Approved Codes of Practice)but has now been re-branded as STGW (Standards of Training in Gas Works). It is gas competence training for caravan and motorhome service technicians. It covers the key skills for gas safety; servicing, repairing and testing of the gas system and appliances; and issuing appropriate documentation.
City and Guilds in Caravan and Leisure Engineering.
In our eyes this course is the final qualification for a fledgling caravan and motorhome engineer to achieve after some months of experience, learning on the tools and having previously gained the qualifications listed above. The examination consists of both a practical and written assessment and would normally be achieved after approximately 2 years of experience.
There are many other dealers closer to where we live, but because you are prepared to go the extra mile in the service you provide, that few extra miles is easily worth the effort on our part.
Mr Joll, Exeter
We have always had good service from the Stowford Sales team, in particular the excellent handover and aftersales service. We have been so impressed that we have just bought our 4th Caravan from Stowford
Mr and Mrs Shipton, Devon
The service we received from the first time we looked at the caravan until we took possession of it far exceeded our expectations. The service we received was exceptional.
Mr Bennett, Bristol
Thanks to you and your team for your monumental efforts in handing over our new Bailey Unicorn Seville last week in time for us to get away as planned. It really is reassuring to receive such good service and to always be welcomed with a smile.
Buying a Caravan from Stowford is a very enjoyable and memorable experience.
We were very pleased with the professionalism from Stowford.
Mr and Mrs Smith
The Handover procedure you operate is excellent.
Mr and Mrs Le Cornu, Coventry
Thank you to Simon at Coed Ely, Lyn and Tom at Devon for sorting out a replacement window and minor bodywork repair to our 3 week old Cartagena following a collision… Everyone at Stowford and especially Simon Bennett at Bailey were absolutely marvellous. Previously we’ve always had Swift vans and they can learn an awfull lot from Bailey and Stowford on excellent customer service.
Mr B Lloyd
I just thought I would put an email together to thank all the staff at Stowford. From the first contact right through to the handover and aftersales with a few minor niggles the staff have been polite and all wanted to help. I have to say I am very particular about purchases and nothing was too much trouble for the Stowford team.
Mr Wright, Bude
Got to say about the after care I’ve received from Stowford is FIRST CLASS.
