CES (UK) has revealed their new training calendar for 2012. For technicians keen to improve their skills and knowledge, it offers a wide choice of courses. The calendar includes the well respected ATA Service Maintenance Technician (Light Vehicle) qualification, which is practical route for technicians to demonstrate their competence. After passing the one day course registered technicians appear on public register on a dedicated website and can also promote the accreditation within their business.
As vehicle technology continues to develop, there’s a greater need for technicians to update their skills. So CES (UK) has included courses that cover Testing Procedures, Bosch Diagnostics Testers and Engine Management. There’s even a course for Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Systems, run to help technicians prepare for the expected increase in these vehicles over the coming years. There are also specialist courses that focus upon Air Conditioning, Braking and Chassis systems and Electronic Diesel Control Systems.
Meeting industry leading standards, the courses are run by the likes of Bosch and Delphi. They mainly take place at the company’s own IMI accredited training centre in Chester, where all ATA courses are run. Opened in 2007, the centre has its own workshop, so providing practical training in addition to classroom learning.
"We believe it’s important that all those involved in the aftermarket have the skills and knowledge to compete in the future,” says Melanie Warburton, CES (UK) marketing director. “That’s why we’ve created a schedule of courses that provides the training technicians need to keep pace with changing technology, legislation and consumer expectations. Technicians will also find that our training centre provides a first class environment for effective learning."
