A collaboration between Pro-Align and the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) has led to the introduction of an advanced training course, designed to align with the stringent BS 10125 standard. The course is tailored for automotive body shops and accident repair centers, focusing on Section C.10 – steering, suspension and braking Systems, and includes up-to-date instruction on ADAS and electric and hybrid vehicles.
The one-day advanced wheel alignment course is a significant step toward continuous professional development in the automotive repair sector. According to the companies, it ensures that technicians are not only compliant with the BS 10125 standard, which necessitates reassessment every three years, but also helps them maintain the BSI Kitemark for vehicle damage repair.
The course also offers an intensive morning session, refreshing critical knowledge of wheel alignment and its impact on steering and suspension. It includes an 80-minute examination, testing participants’ understanding, and an afternoon practical session where trainees demonstrate their skills in real-world scenarios. The aim is to shape technicians who not only meet but exceed the expectations of the BS 10125 standard.
The course is available three times a week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) and is limited to four individuals per session, ensuring focused, hands-on training.
Clive Seabrook, CEO of Pro-Align, said, “Ensuring our technicians are equipped with the most advanced skills and knowledge is not just about compliance, it’s about redefining the standards of safety and quality in vehicle repair and maintenance. This new advanced wheel alignment course, in collaboration with the IMI, signifies a leap forward in our commitment to excellence.”
This certification is widely recognized by vehicle manufacturers, insurers and work providers, ensuring that repairs are carried out safely and to the highest standards.
