Shell Lubricants has organised a Masterclass training session for 46 bike mechanics and Independent Workshop Owners (IWS) in New Delhi, India. The session was part of the company’s nationwide initiative aiming to engage and train approximately 7000 mechanics and IWSs across 16 Indian cities. Shell is running the global Masterclass competition across several countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia, from where the top winners will be selected in November in Malaysia. The New Delhi session was one of the several regional level training programmes based on which, certain mechanics will qualify for the national round scheduled in Delhi in September. The top ten best performers will get the opportunity to represent India at a global level in Malaysia and a chance to see the Moto GP racing event live, the company said.
Mansi Tripathy, Country Head, Shell Lubricants, India, said, “The mechanic community is the most important part of our value chain and they are the ones capable of influencing the decision of a buyer. The biker lubricant brand, Shell Advance values their contribution and are trying to give back to them by upskilling them.”
