A group of 15 Revive technicians have taken their technical expertise to a higher level, attaining the Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA) in cosmetic vehicle repair.
Every Revive technician receives Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) approved training before starting their business, and the brand has the largest UK network of accredited technicians.
However, individuals are strongly encouraged to continually invest in their professional development with additional training.
The ATA, a voluntary scheme run by the IMI, involves a series of rigorous practical assessments and a knowledge test, all under strict examination conditions. Achieving this accreditation firmly underlines the depth and breadth of a technician’s specialist skills and industry knowledge.
Mark Llewellyn (pictured), managing director of Revive, says: “We are immensely proud of our franchisees. For another 15 of them to achieve this accreditation speaks volumes about the quality of our service. Improving standards across the entire smart repair industry has always been one of Revive’s core objectives, and this development has raised the bar one more notch.
“I am delighted that we now have in excess of 50 accredited technicians – it really demonstrates our commitment to quality and technical excellence.
“Any professional who is serious about their trade knows that there is always more to learn. At Revive we understand the importance of growing a network of accredited technicians that are committed to honing their skills and keeping up with industry developments.
“This gives our customers the assurance that Revive! provides superior technicians who carry out high quality repairs.”
As the preferred supplier of smart repairs to major car dealerships and fleet operators, Revive’s customers include Alfa Romeo Fiat, Lex Autolease and Mercedes.
The company works closely with the IMI to drive up standards and as a result has paved the way for smart repair to become a top quality alternative to bodyshops for minor vehicle damage.
