RMI HOSTS LOCAL EVENT FOR MOT TESTERS TO MEET NEW DVSA ANNUAL TRAINING REQUIREMENTS

Published 15/06/2016 00:00:00 in Press Releases

The RMI Academy of Automotive Skills has hosted the very first regional event in Bristol to deliver local training to MOT testers following DVSA changes to the MOT training regime. As a result, 18 MOT Testers have successfully completed their mandatory annual training for 2016 well ahead of the deadline in March 2017.

The training event covered the full syllabus and complied with the new requirements introduced in April. Prior to this date, testers were required to complete an MOT tester refresher course every five years. Now, following a continuous professional development (CPD) model, testers will need to complete three hours of training and pass an online assessment every year.

As the event package includes access to the annual assessment, the testers now only need to log on and complete the assessment in their own time in order to maintain their tester status for the next year.

Stuart James, RMI Director said, “This is the first of many regional events we are putting on. As the UK’s leading garage trade association, our aim is to accommodate the garage network at locations near to their businesses. We will commit to putting on events where we are needed.”

The RMI Academy of Automotive skill will be hosting another Annual Training Forum in Warrington on Tuesday 19 July. This training event will take place at Culcheth Sports Club in Culcheth, Warrington.
