Martec training was awarded ATA (Automotive Technician Accreditation) accreditation for both Air Conditioning and Service Maintenance Technician in July 2009. Our ATA training centre is based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire.
This is great news for local businesses and technicians, especially for those who need to find a solution to the July 2010 EC regulation that states that all Mobile Air Conditioning (MAC) technicians working with cars and car derived vans, must have achieved as a minimum requirement, a Refrigerant Handling Qualification to be able to handle F Gas and to carry on with their jobs.
Automotive Technician Accreditation (ATA) is regulated by the Institute of Motor Industry (IMI), this assessment gives technicians the chance to gain recognition for their skills and provides proof of their ability and desire to work to a high professional standard.
With over 16,000 ATA registered technicians across the UK, the IMI launched a consumer campaign last year, "You know you're OK with ATA", to help motorists search online for their nearest business employing ATA registered technicians at ok with ATA.
