New skills award from the IMI recognises trainers


training-IMI-UKPA-e1381856593272The new standards were introduced by the IMI as before there was nothing to support and highlight the qualifications, experience and skills of trainers and assessors.

On achieving the new benchmark standard, Donley said, ““It was fantastic to be the first achiever and I am proud that I was able to attain the highest standard available. I would definitely recommend these standards to people in a similar position.

“This is the first programme to come along that specifically recognises individuals who are passing on skills and knowledge to others in the automotive sector. Many people in training related positions hold qualifications, but do not necessarily do anything with them to further their careers or have their own achievements recognised. These standards provide a clear route to do that.”

To be awarded the standard, individuals need to be actively working in the sector and undertake an assessment to prove their capabilities and knowledge. Any who achieve the standard are listed on the IMI’s public-facing Professional Register and will have their added status displayed next to their membership grade. For more information visit
