IMI Level 1 Award/Certificate/Diploma inAutomotive Maintenance

If you are a school leaver and you have little or no experience of the motor industry then this IMI course will provide you with a solid foundation to progress towards an industry-recognised qualification.

This programme uses a practical approach, with classroom delivery kept to a minimum in order to gain an understanding of motor vehicle technology from a workshop environment. It also provides the Maths, English, and work skills you’ll need to successfully progress into the world of work or further study.

As part of the course, we will provide overalls, safety boots and safety glasses.
There is a course fee of £50 for all learning materials, including E-books.
