Motofix expands Thatcham Research relationship

Motofix Group has expanded its relationship with Thatcham Research to ensure all 200-plus employees have access to ecademy, along with personalised learning plans.

Motofix is a long-standing Thatcham Research client for repair data, training, and apprenticeships.

The relationship has recently been expanded to provide Motofix with access to Thatcham Research’s online learning management system, ecademy, for the next three years.

Now, following the successful deployment of blended learning programmes for its apprentices via the Thatcham Research Automotive Academy, Motofix has extended this to include its entire workforce. Included within the package is vital EV awareness and skills training for all Motofix staff via Thatcham Research’s pioneering EV Ready programme.

Dean Lander, head of repair sector services, Thatcham Research, said: “The guiding principle of ensuring safe and efficient vehicle repair is very much at the heart of both businesses. As such, we are proud to expand our relationship with Motofix, an organisation that prioritises professional growth not only for skilled technicians but also the wider business, ensuring that all staff have easy access to knowledge development tools and can stay in touch with ever-evolving vehicle repair dynamics.”

Motofix chairman, Richard Tutt said: “ecademy is the perfect solution for developing the technical knowledge and awareness of changing vehicle technology. This is essential for all our site teams, especially around ADAS and HEV, whether they are technicians or non-technical members of the team and we are delighted to be working with Thatcham Research on this new learning opportunity.

“The ecademy virtual training solution provides a significant financial benefit for Motofix, not only in terms of driving travel and accommodation cost-savings but also because our teams can remain on location and blend their learning with their day-to-day business responsibilities.”
