The ATA scheme sets a benchmark for technical competence

Bosch is the latest organisation to become an Approved Assessment Centre for the delivery of Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA).

Bosch will now offer in-house‚ ATA assessments in accordance with IMI guidelines for Bosch training customers only.

The ATA disciplines that will be made available are:

  • Diagnostic Technician Light Vehicle
  • Master Technician Light Vehicle
  • Air Conditioning Refrigerant Handler

The ATA scheme was launched by the Institute of the Motor Industry in 2005.

It tests the technical competence of individuals working in the retail motor industry and a special code of conduct to ensure professional responsibility is included.

Grant Taylor-Smith, training manager at Bosch, said: “Since its launch, the ATA scheme has made huge strides in raising the standard of technical competence in the industry.

“Public confidence in our sector due to ATA has also improved.”

Robert Bosch began providing technical training for UK garages in 1956.
