The Independent Garage Association (IGA) is helping to upskill the industry with the announcement of discounted MOT training.
As of 1 November 2023, it will be offering huge subsidies on MOT training for its members, including:
- A 40 percent reduction in the cost of MOT tester training.
- A 50 percent reduction in the cost of MOT manager training for a limited period.
Stuart James, IGA chief executive, said: “Due to the challenging times we are facing as a sector, the IGA feels it is appropriate to provide support to members and help them with the cost of upskilling their staff, as we enter the busy period for MOTs.”
In addition to the subsidised training offers, the IGA will continue to provide subsidised EV Level 3 training for members, to help them prepare for the growing number of electric vehicles entering the UK car parc.
Stuart James added: “As a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting its members’ success, it is right that the IGA channels surplus funds back to members by offering subsidies, giving members access to the expertise provided by MOT courses at the RMI Academies.”
Courses are available at RMI Academy of Skills sites in Cheltenham, Lincoln, Southam, Runcorn and Winchester. To enquire or book, call 01788 538 399 or visit the website.
