LTA4 - Top award for a Top Technician
Jerry Stansfield based at Farol, Byfield has just been awarded LTA 4 (Land Based Technician Accreditation) the highest award for a technician who next year will see 25 years of service for the John Deere Dealer.
The LTA scheme is backed by many major manufacturers in the agricultural, forestry, groundcare and horticultural sector providing a nationwide benchmark for monitoring and accessing technicians. LTA 4 is the highest achievement for a professional technician and is achieved after completing the first 3 tiers with a proven and accessed track record.
Jerry started with Farol back in 1991 and has remained with the company to become one of their most professional technicians and the LTA has shown his exceptional diagnostic and technical abilities together with customer and technical mentoring skills. “The most challenging part of the exam was fixing unknown faults within a set time but that is also my favourite part of my everyday job – a challenge” commented Jerry.
With a keen interest in farming and engineering it seemed an obvious path for Jerry to take and actively encourages the apprentices at the depot. “It is a varied and interesting career and you are at the cutting edge of technology, hard work produces high award”. Jerry enjoys working for Farol and passing the LTA4 is a testament to the commitment that he has shown to the family company over the years.
