Automotive Technician Accreditation
Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA) is a national programme designed to test the current competence of motor industry technicians throughout the UK. The scheme, which is regulated by the Institute of the Motor Industry, also encompasses
- Evidence of professional responsibility and professional competence
- Independent quality assurance
- Confidence that your car or van is in safe, qualified hands
As ATA registered technicians each of our service centre staff must pass a comprehensive and detailed set of tests of their practical knowledge and skills. Our technicians are re-assessed every five years in order to keep their skills up to date with technological advances and to maintain their ATA accreditation.
In addition, our mechanics and technicians have signed and are bound by the ATA Code of Conduct. The Institute of the Motor Industry maintains a complaints procedure for ATA approved technicians, in order to maintain the integrity of the award and to ensure that its bearers merit the status conferred by this demanding accreditation. Our approved technicians each hold a photo identity card, issued by the
