The training provided at the centre covers all levels and skills required within a dealer’s parts distribution department. It also provides all parts department employees, up to the departmental manager, with access to a structured training programme.
By following the programme and successfully completing the required training courses, Associate Membership status of the Institute of the Motor Industry (AMIMI) will be awarded.
Rod Philpot, Peugeot’s parts and service director says: "This is the first part of Peugeot’s strategy to offer all customer facing personnel, involved in all areas of aftersales, the opportunity to work towards a national qualification."
Sarah Sillars, chief executive IMI says: "The investment in parts training provided by Peugeot’s training centre is an important initiative and I look forward to recognising the achievements of Peugeot’s Parts Distribution personnel through IMI membership."
Peugeot’s business institute has also launched its first accreditation programme for new sales executives. Successful completion of the three year programme will be rewarded with Associate Membership status of the Institute of the Motor Industry (AMIMI).
