RMI offers free MOT training for members

RMI 01/06/2017

To celebrate the opening of a new Academy of Automotive Skills in Runcorn, the Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI) is offering free MOT Tester training to its members.

To support MOT businesses in the North of England, the RMI is opening its second Academy in July so MOT stations can have access to an all-encompassing cost effective MOT training solution from the UK’s largest automotive trade association.  

The offer is available throughout July to RMI members who have been in membership for over two years and are eligible to take the course immediately.

Stuart James, RMI Director commented, “We believe this is what trade associations should be doing for their members.  As the largest representative voice of MOT businesses and a ‘not for profit’ organisation, we are delighted to be giving something back to loyal members. Mirroring our existing Academy in Southam, this Academy will be providing high quality training courses that are already exceptional value for money, and this offer for our longstanding members is unbeatable.”

The new Academy will deliver MOT Tester training for all classes, MOT Manager training and a Level Three accreditation in Light Vehicle Inspection for experienced technicians who do not have formal qualifications.

The Academy will also cater for MOT Tester Annual Training, offering classroom sessions for the DVSA 2017/18 syllabus with the annual assessment. 

Booking for all training course is now open and can be made via the RMI Member Helpline on 0845 305 4230.
