Certified ATA Technicians
The Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA) is a national voluntary programme governed by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) which tests the current competence of individuals working in the retail motor industry, who are committed to delivering an ethical code of conduct.
Kwik Fit is an approved ATA test centre and there are ATA sessions running every month for Kwik Fit staff. All ATA accredited individuals must successfully pass a series of practical assessments and theory-based tests. Our training strategy includes a commitment for every one of our Service Technicians to achieve ATA accreditation.
All ATA accredited technicians are reassessed every three years in order to maintain their accreditation and to ensure they remain up-to-date with the latest developments in the automotive repair industry.
