Entrants scoring top marks will be invited to attend a free training seminar and practical assessment with the chance of gaining Level 2 Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA).
Stuart Brooks, head of public relations, Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), says: “Top Technician is a showcase for recognizing skilled individuals who work in an increasingly complex environment.
“Its focus towards best practice and outstanding technical competence reflects the objectives of the industry’s new Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA) initiative, which has become an integral part of Top Technician for 2006.”
Every entrant or nominated technician will receive a question paper between now and December 2005.
Marks will be collated and in January 2006, the top scoring 36 technicians will be invited to attend the free training seminar, hosted by technical specialist MototeK.
