Andrew Page has introduced a range of annual training and assessment solutions for MOT testers and quality controllers in partnership with IMI.
Through its Auto Education programme, Andrew Page has introduced seven courses to meet new Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) requirements, with courses suitable for existing and new MOT testers. Andrew Page’s offering ranges from online courses, training plans and annual CPD for existing testers; to one, two and three day courses for new MOT testers and MOT managers.
The recent changes to the way the DVSA manages the UK MOT scheme mean that all new MOT testers are now required to hold an IMI level 3 qualification before gaining their qualification. From September this year, new Quality Controllers – now to be known as MOT Managers – will have to sit and pass a new MOT Manager course.
The changes also affect those to have already gained their qualification, as existing testers are now required to undertake annual training and an assessment to maintain their tester status. All training and assessments must be carried out by an IMI-approved centre, such as Andrew Page.
“Our programme of training courses can assist both existing MOT testers and future candidates and further extends our relationship with the IMI,” said Paul Hall, Andrew Page Training Manager. “These new courses follow our IMI-accredited one-day and ‘Road to Success’ diagnostic technician programmes, which have proven to be very popular among aspiring and experienced technicians.”
