Garage technicians can now undertake Automotive Technician Accreditation assessment at CES UKâ€™s training centre in Chester.
The training centre, based at the companyâ€™s Chester HQ, has been accredited as an IMI (Institute of the Motor Industry) Awards Centre.
CES is understood to be the first parts distributor to be awarded the status in the UK.
The company also operates ATA parts advisor training and assessments for its own staff.
Paul Hawkins, CESâ€™ automotive training manager, said: â€œCES question the point of signing up for a training course if you already have some of the skills.
â€œThe ATA assesses real time skills and makes recommendations on specific training needs where you need to brush up.
â€œThis means you can get back to your business because you spend less time and less money on general training you donâ€™t need by concentrating on what you do need.â€
