IMI receives strong online CPD response

Published:  21 April, 2020

 Free online CPD courses launched by the IMI in the wake of the Coronavirus lockdown have proved popular, with more than 200 signing up within the first 24 hours of operation.

The IMI free online CPD courses for members include:

• Electric Vehicle eLearning

• Strategy and You.

• Motor Vehicle Service and Maintenance Technician (Light Vehicle) Practice

Commenting on the take-up of the courses, IMI CEO Steve Nash said: “What has also come across loud and clear is that our members want to ensure they are making use of down-time to maintain or even improve their skills. In just one day of promoting our free online CPD courses, we received over 200 registrations. It’s heartening - although personally not surprising – to see how determined automotive professionals are to ensure they can maintain their skills ready for when motorists are able to leave their homes and, inevitably, will need their vehicles to be serviced or MOT’d.

He continued: “For some drivers, they will be ready to make their next purchasing decision as soon as the showrooms are open again. Indeed, the respone to our free EV online courses has been particularly strong, suggesting that motor industry professionals are looking to the future and the growing move towards electric motoring.”

Steve added: “Of course, for many people in the sector, assistance in understanding about their employment rights during this difficult time has been a key issue. Our teams of HR, financial and legal experts are providing valuable insight – accessible from our COVID-19 hub – to help address these concerns.”
