MG Motor UK has announced that the Cecil Kimber College has now been accredited by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), following “significant investment”.
The MG report stated that the "highly-coveted industry recognition" signified that MG has the capacity and high-standard infrastructure to deliver technical training to repairers across the MG dealer network.
The accreditation follows a £0.5 million investment in developing its courses, training equipment and infrastructure earlier this year.
It also developed its parts warehouse, adding workshop space for up to 10 vehicles, twin fully equipped classrooms to accommodate up to 20 delegates, two post hoists to allow for raised vehicle work and insulated flooring to accommodate electric and hybrid vehicle training.
All existing training courses have been reviewed and new courses developed to support a comprehensive training program. Every course has also been included as part of the IMI’s Quality Assured Programme, recognising the high-standard of these courses.
MG’s head of aftersales and parts, Harvey France, said: “MG has experienced extraordinary success over the past twelve months with significant market growth, dealers coming onboard and new partnerships such as the IMI.
“Our success could not have been achieved without the dedication of our dealers who we will continue to support through our purpose-built training facility.
“We anticipate sales of the MG brand to increase as we refresh and expand the range. The Cecil Kimber College is part of our commitment to support growing demand via quality dealers in our network.”
