ATS Euromaster is to share its expertise with the wider industry and offer accredited MOT training to third-party technicians.
The course, which is approved by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) and used by ATS Euromaster to train its own technicians, is now available for any business that wants its MOT testers to benefit from the same high-quality training received by employees at the tyre and vehicle maintenance provider.
The five-day course, held at ATS Euromaster’s purpose-built training facility in Aston, covers both Class 4 and Class 7 MOTs – plus management training is available for technicians wanting to run their own test centre. As well as these two courses, ATS Euromaster is also offering the annual MOT training and assessment course at locations across the country.
Fiona Thompson, group head of learning and development at ATS Euromaster, said: “ATS Euromaster enjoys a reputation of having expertly trained staff, thanks to the quality of our training programmes, which are interactive, professional and practical. Now other businesses will be able to benefit from our expertise with a training programme that provides the perfect combination of discussion, activity and theory.”
She added: “We believe our technical trainers are among the best in the industry and this new opportunity means trainee MOT technicians will be given the highest standard of training possible, exactly the same as our own expert technicians.”
ATS Euromaster previously worked closely on a pilot training programme with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), which stopped running its own MOT training courses in September 2016.
Plans are also under way to make the course available at the ATS Euromaster Brentwood service centre by the end of the year, to cater for technicians in the south, in addition to the Aston training centre covering the north and the Midlands.
The five-day course costs £1,000 per person, with a discounted rate of £850 per person available for companies booking six places or more. The two-day MOT manager course is £450 per person and the MOT annual assessment is £150 per person. All enquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to offering MOT training, ATS Euromaster has invested heavily in growing its MOT-ready centres, with MOTs now available at 147 of its locations nationwide and with the option for customers to book online.
