Porsche customers in Trinidad & Tobago can now sleep much more peacefully, as the technician Stefan Singh achieved Gold Certification in 2016 and now uses his globally recognized certification to take care of their sportscars.

“Singh has demonstrated a commitment to the industry, the company, the profession and his own career,” said Darel Hosein, Porsche Service Manager at Lifestyle Motors Limited, Porsche exclusive importer for Trinidad & Tobago.  “By working relentlessly to achieve Gold Certification, he has shown that he has the drive and passion and definitely deserves to be part of one of the most reputable automotive brands in the world.”

At just 27 years old, Singh has attained many accomplishments since he joined Lifestyle Motors Limited back in 2011. Born and raised in Lalbeharry Trace, Debe, he attended Debe High School and then went on to develop his skills at the National Energy Skill Centre (NESC).

“Growing up, I always had a passion for cars. When I started working back in 2011, I was a regular technician working on other brands and it was during this time that I developed an admiration for the values and corporate culture of the Porsche brand,” Singh said. “At that time there were no other locally certified Porsche technicians. My passion for Porsche, combined with my willingness, sacrifice and determination, led me to the point of the highest level of achievement.”

Singh's Gold certification demonstrates a commitment to excellence. It is part of Porsche's philosophy to provide training to service technicians to ensure that they are fully equipped to provide the best service and to the highest standards for their customers. There are successive levels of qualification (Bronze, Silver and Gold) in the Certified Porsche Technician worldwide programme. Technicians are required to undergo various theory exams and are also tested directly on a training vehicle in a practical exam, to achieve both silver and gold certification.
