IMI awards CPD certificates

The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) has announced it will be awarding Continual Professional Development (CPD) certificates to visitors who attend the live training and learning seminars of the whole damage repair process at Automechanika Frankfurt.

Messe Frankfurt has once again worked closely with exhibitors and trade associations to create an interesting professional-development programme for trade visitors from the workshop sector with 11 workshops for repair specialists from the collision-damage segment being held throughout the fair, from 11 to 15 September 2018.

The IMI is partnering with organisations like Bosch, DEKRA and BMW to give visitors the opportunity to gain CPD points through training seminars whilst they visit the event. Supporting the need for individuals to keep their knowledge and skills up-to-date in today’s rapidly changing industry, the IMI’s CPD certificates demonstrate the person’s knowledge on new products, services and skills after attending a live training seminar during Automechanika Frankfurt.

Raising the awareness of the importance of vocational skills and training across the automotive sector, the IMI will be giving its stamp of approval by certificating the training courses taking place across the five days. Training topics include systematic car damage assessments, high-voltage systems, paint refinishing, and bodywork repairs for the BMW 5 Series.

Mark Forshaw, business development manager at the IMI, said, ‘The IMI is delighted to be working with a variety of CPD partners at Automechanika Frankfurt as part of a new initiative to enhance peoples experience when visiting the show. The training available will give people the opportunity to gain further knowledge, whilst receiving CPD points from the IMI during their visit.’
