Automotive Technician Accreditation

Light Vehicle Inspection


What is ATA?

 ATA is a national voluntary scheme which tests the current competence of individuals working in the retail motor trade, who are committed to an ethical code of conduct.  With the increasing complexity and sophistication of vehicles, and a shortage of skilled individuals, there has never been a greater need for competent technicians.

 Who is ATA Light Vehicle Inspection suitable for?

 The IMI Accreditation Light Vehicle Inspection route is intended for technicians whose job role involves the inspection, maintenance and repair of light vehicles.
There is one level within IMI Accreditation Light Vehicle Inspection: -

Inspection Technician must be able to work unsupervised - ideally, they should be in full time employment with at least 3 years experience to ensure they are familiar with the techniques for vehicle servicing, inspection and system(s) diagnosis.

How do you become accredited?

 There are two routes to gaining IMI Accredited status: Full Assessment, and Conversion. Full Assessment involves the completion of all practical and knowledge-based assessments at each level. Conversion enables an individual to use existing qualifications to gain exemption from specific modules. IMI Accreditation continually evolves to meet the changing needs of the industry, with each accreditation valid for three years, after which time an individual is required to undertake a new assessment either at the same level, next career level or a different route in order to prove their current competence.

What Will This Cost?

The ATA assessment will be completed over the course of 1 day, 
and will cost £350.00 + VAT.
