ATA Auto at Coleg Gwent, South Wales

Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA) Centre

Governed by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA) is a national voluntary scheme which tests the current competence of individuals working in the retail motor industry, who are committed to an ethical code of conduct.  

If you’re an automotive industry technician working in sectors such as light vehicle or motorcycle maintenance, roadside assistance, accident repair, auto glazing, parts distribution or customer service, ATA is suitable for you. To achieve ATA accreditation, you must pass a series of practical assessments and an online test at an approved centre.

Coleg Gwent is considered one of the leading training providers for the automotive industry in South Wales and is now offering you a FREE one day IMI pre-accreditation (formerly ATA) training session when you book onto one of the following full IMI accreditations or re-accreditation assessments:
