Thatcham Automotive Academy is taking a new approach to skills development in the UK collision repair sector. Responding to customer demand for more flexible training delivery, 2012 will see a new Mobile Training Unit and innovative e-learning package available to UK insurance engineers and repairers.

    These two new initiatives, combined with state of the art facilities in Berkshire, will give the crash repair sector unprecedented access to Thatcham’s high quality training and accreditation programmes.

    Combining the latest training aids and technology rich course content, on-site training will provide the complete solution to cost effective and focused skills without added downtime, travel and accommodation costs. The Academy’s new flexible training approach will enable insurers and bodyshops to choose the delivery format that suits their technicians’ learning styles and best meets their business needs. Whether it’s on-site delivery, e-learning or training at Thatcham’s Academy in Berkshire, the courses will be based on the latest vehicle research, delivered by the UK’s most experienced instructor team.

    For more information of Thatcham’s new training programme call the Training Sales team on 01635 293174 who will help you to design a training programme that reflects your training needs and delivers on quality, results and price.

    Thatcham’s innovations in course delivery will supersede the need for our satellite academy at MIRA, Nuneaton, which will close by the end of 2011, with all ATA aligned courses and competency testing transferring to Berkshire.
