ATA DAB qualification made easier with mobile assessment


DABThe Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) has built a new partnership to give technicians the opportunity to gain their ATA DAB accreditation.

The joint venture with the Federation Communication Services (FCS) and Mobile Electronic Security Federation (MESF) will be offering the test through mobile assessment centres.

It will allow technicians to obtain their DAB qualification in under one day, meaning less time out of the workshop.

This addition opens up the installer qualification to more technicians, in-car entertainment businesses and retailers.

The aim is to open a network of mobile assessment centres nationwide, with the first located in Cambridge at in-car specialist, Select-CBS.

Steve Scofield, Head of Accreditation at the IMI, said “There is a considerable amount of technical work involved when it comes to installing a DAB unit into a vehicle; with ATA DAB as part of the Digital Radio Installer Scheme, this will provide customers with the reassurance that their installer is working to the high standards required to use the Digital Radio Certification Mark.

“The digital switchover could affect in excess of 26 million vehicles, so we’re pleased to be supporting Digital Radio UK, by making ATA DAB as a widely available as possible to help the industry make the most of the opportunity.”
