RMI Academy of Automotive SkillsBack

RMIThe RMI Academy of Automotive Skills was officially opened on Friday 6 May in Southam, Warwickshire.

The brand new, state of the art training facility set up by the Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI), will act as a leading industry resource for MOT tester training, and in time will offer wider high quality, cost effective automotive technical training.

Courses will include:

  • New MOT Tester Training
  • New Motorcycle Tester Training
  • MOT Manager Training
  • ATA L3 Light Vehicle Inspection
  • CPD/Annual Assessment
  • F-GAS

RMI Director Stuart James commented, “The way MOT testers are trained is changing, with the qualification to become a National Occupational Standard (NOS). This will be a recognised qualification for testers, creating a professional standard for both the role and the MOT industry.

“As the UK’s leading automotive trade body, we will support all MOT stations. With this major change to the way MOT testers are trained, the RMI is the first off the mark to support the industry and has developed a cost effective solution.”

The launch was attended by the Rt Hon Jeremy Wright QC MP for Kenilworth and Southam who officially opened the centre.

Jeremy Wright MP commented, “As the government continues its commitment to developing apprenticeships, it is extremely positive to see that the RMI has also recognised the importance of continued employee training and development, which plays a vital role within the automotive industry. I am delighted to have been a part of this important occasion.”

The training centre will be available to all MOT garages in the motor trade.
