The Scottish Motor Trade Association has partnered with the Institute of the Motor Industry to support its members’ annual continued professional development (CPD) and assessment requirements.
Available now, all SMTA membership businesses and their employees, will be able to access the annual DVSA CPD model and from June 1 the assessment from a portal both at home or their workplace – and at a convenient time.
Sandy Burgess (pictured), SMTA chief executive, said: “This is a fantastic deal for our members.
“It gives them the convenience of eLearning access with the membership deal delivering a unique, complete and affordable solution for their business.
“Aligning the SMTA as the recognised motor industry trade body in
Scotland with the IMI as the motor industry's professional body is both a logical and exciting prospect for the future."
Steve Nash, IMI chief executive, said: “The eLearning platform provides an immediate solution that allows flexible learning for all MoT testers.
“We know this partnership will provide more value for SMTA members moving forward, as we expand our offer into new vehicle technologies and solutions for sales staff.”
The IMI is offering a complete package to all MoT experts with a bespoke eLearning programme, the annual training and annual assessment, and free online practice tests to ensure all MoT testers in both light vehicle and motorcycle are equipped with the knowledge required by DVSA.
