RMI ACADEMY TO TRAIN MOT TESTERS

Published 25/01/2016 00:00:00 in Press Releases

The Retail Motor Industry Federation’s (RMI) training centre, the RMI Academy of Automotive Skills, will be running a pilot for the new MOT tester training from April 2016.

The way MOT testers are being trained is changing, with the role soon to become a National Occupational Standard (NOS). This will be a recognised qualification for testers, creating a professional standard for both the role and the MOT industry.

The RMI has worked with awarding bodies including IMI and City & Guilds to help develop the standard alongside DVSA, and will continue to support DVSA throughout the changes and beyond.

RMI Director Stuart James comments, “As the UK’s leading automotive trade body, we will support MOT stations in all sectors of the industry. With this major change to the way MOT testers are trained, the RMI is first off the mark to support garage businesses.”

The training centre opening this spring will be available to all garages in the motor trade, and will deliver high quality, cost effective training across the industry.
