IMI hands out 'recognition standard'

Assessors and trainers benefit from new certificate

Published:  21 October, 2013

THE Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) has announced the first achievers of a new quality mark for technical trainers and assessors.

The new certificate, known as 'Automotive Trainer and Assessor Professional Recognition Standards' has been designed specifically for professionals involved in automotive training.

Allianz Global Assist Technical Training Manager, Mike Donley has become the first IMI member to achieve the 'Advanced Automotive Assessor' recognition standard whilst David Wray, Work Base and ATA Assessor Verifier at Motherwell College, was the first automotive professional in Scotland to achieve the same standard.

Speaking after receiving his certificate, Mike Donley commented: "Many people in training related positions hold qualifications, but do not necessarily do anything with them to further their careers or have their own achievements recognised. These standards provide a clear route to do that."

Trainers and Assessors who have achieved the standards are also listed on the IMI's public-facing Professional Register and will have their status displayed alongside their membership grade. To find out more about the IMI's new Trainer and Assessor recognition standards visit:
