This qualification is perfect if your job role involves the repair of vehicles typically involved in accidents or similar incident circumstances.

IMI Accreditation was created to help the motor industry keep on top of constant, rapid changes in technology, legislation and working methods, by encouraging and measuring the current competence, knowledge and ability of those working within it.

By providing proof of current competence, IMI Accreditation benefits both individuals and their employers.

We offer both Full Accreditation and Reaccreditation.

The optional Pre-training for Accreditation course is designed for already accredited professionals who are preparing to take a ATA Reaccreditation in any specialism.

It covers and will prepare you for your Reaccreditation and includes:

  • Any changes to the reaccreditation process
  • New technologies and processes, if applicable
  • An opportunity to fill any knowledge or skill gaps
