The IMI’s new eLearning resources for students studying Body Repair, Paint and MET received a strong vote of confidence from over 100 training providers, who attended show events around the UK.
The platform uses a blend of multimedia learning styles, such as video, voiceover and photographs to enhance study opportunities for students and make the classroom learning experience more interactive.
The IMI visited five locations around the UK to demonstrate the new system, receiving feedback suggesting the resources are set to make a significant contribution to body repair and paint related apprenticeship training. Comments received included:
One speaker said: “The resources open the door to good teaching ideas – making our job much easier and more effective.”
Technical learning materials cover accident repair topics such as chassis alignment, metal work, surface preparation and trim, whilst paint topics include equipment, preparation and paint application.
IMI eLearning Development Manager Tom Denton said: “The new resources are designed to support students through the majority of their apprenticeship, including functional skills requirements.
The IMI say additional modules are set to be added over time until all areas of the curriculum are covered from Entry Level 1 to Level 3.
Denton added: “We believe these resources will go a long way to ensuring current training in vehicle body repair and paint related professions is up-to-date and fit for purpose in the modern industry.
“The body repair sector has been through a tough time recently. Ensuring that fresh talent entering the industry has received the best possible training is a vital ingredient in creating a successful and profitable future.”
