IAAF Academy launched

Published:  16 September, 2022

The IAAF has launched a new training offering; IAAF Academy. Commenting on the new IAAF Academy, IAAF CEO Mark Field said: “From virtual to practical training, the IAAF Academy will cover all areas of an automotive aftermarket business, helping companies and their teams learn and familiarise themselves with new technology and legislation, while also enhancing personal development skills.

The Academy will also look to work closely with schools, colleges and universities, and in collaboration with School of Thought, the not-for-profit organisation that works to raise the profile of the automotive aftermarket within schools and colleges. As part of the venture, the IAAF has set up partnerships with Heart of Worcestershire College, West Notts College, and East Coast College.

West Notts College, with the support of IAAF member HGV Direct, has set up a Parts Advisor Apprenticeship for Car and CV motor factors and IAAF Academy will be working to promote the apprenticeship to all members. Meanwhile, IAAF Academy will be assisting East Coast College with guest speakers from its membership of automotive suppliers and arranging site visits to aftermarket businesses.

Mark continued: “I’m really excited by the potential of IAAF Academy. It will open the industry up to not only new entrants as we support their integration into the industry but, educate, train and support existing people and businesses as we continue to raise standards throughout the distribution aftermarket.”

He added: “The academy will evolve substantially when the new IAAF website goes live later this year, but IAAF has moved quickly to implement and promote initiatives and courses that support its growing membership.”

IAAF members are being asked to register their interest in supporting the academy. For more information, visit: www.iaaf.co.uk
