Independent garage owners who want to ensure their technicians have the very best training for undertaking MOT checks on customers’ vehicles now have the chance to sign them up for a five-day course with ATS Euromaster.
The course takes place at the firm’s training facility in Aston and includes Institute of Motor Industry accredited training for Class 4 and Class 7 MOTs. This is the first time that the courses have been made available to third party technicians. There are also options available at various locations around the country for its annual MOT training and assessment course.
The group head of learning and development, Fiona Thompson, said of the courses:
“ATS Euromaster enjoys a reputation of having expertly trained staff, thanks to the quality of our training programmes, which are interactive, professional and practical.
“We believe our technical trainers are among the best in the industry and this new opportunity means trainee MOT technicians will be given the highest standard of training possible,” she added.
The news of the new third-party courses follows an announcement from ATS Euromaster earlier this year that it is launching a new apprenticeship scheme to try to get more young people into careers in the vehicle maintenance industry.
The scheme has initially signed up eight young people aged between 16 and 19 to undergo the training, provided in conjunction with ProVQ, which provides specialist training for the automotive industry.
Euromaster’s Tim Hallatt, the learning and development business partner at the firm, stated: “While the company already has an exceptional accredited training programme, this new scheme helps support school leavers directly enter the industry, prepares them for the world of work and brings the technicians and managers of the future into ATS Euromaster.”
Investing in staff training is always a positive move for independent garage owners who want to ensure their customer service is the very best they can offer. However, taking out a comprehensive road risks insurance policy is essential as it will protect your business from the cost of damage to cars being driven by trainees when carrying out maintenance.
