GroupAuto Bradford now IMI approved

GroupAuto announce that its head office in Bradford is an IMI (Institute of the Motor Industry) Approved Centre.

Becoming an IMI Approved Centre was a requirement to be able to offer the new IMI EV/PHEV training courses and to ensure a continuation of the 2018 training calendar for garages and motor factors. It is also further investment into the technical training side of the business as it continues to provide membership and networks with industry leading technical training.

To support the internal processes of being a central training hub, Jackie Saville has also joined the business as a technical training co-ordinator, her role is focused on arranging training courses and booking venues for the group’s garage networks and motor factor members.

Maria McCullough, Garage Networks manager said, ‘To become an IMI Approved Centre is quite a challenge and there is a huge amount of paperwork and documentation needed to be compliant; this process is normally expected to take eight weeks, but as a team internally, we worked extremely hard to gain the recognition in record time, and I am pleased to announce that after just five weeks, we had our assessment and audit and passed.  This is another great achievement for the group, and fully supports our commitment to our technical training offering to our membership as a whole.’
