Introducing the IGA Diagnostic Specialist Accreditation

Introducing the IGA Diagnostic Specialist Accreditation

30 July 2015

The IGA has set up a new Technical Committee focused on the future of automotive technology, and as one of their first projects they have created a new Diagnostic Specialist accreditation.

The award will be available early next year and will be available to members who have:

· Completed all IGA training courses

· Been security accredited by RMISC under SERMI

· Undertaken software updates using Pass-Thru

· Updates electronic service records

· Trust My Garage membership

· Audited by IGA

The accreditation will recognise the diagnostic capability of a garage and will act as proof that they have the ability to communicate with newer cars. As the award will be from a trade body with no commercial interests, it will also help fleets know which independents are able to service their work.

The IGA’s Technical Committee aims to keep independent garages “up to speed” with advances in automotive technology as well as pushing for access to technical information.

It is formed of independent garages who work on the cutting edge of vehicle technology, testing the latest multi-brand diagnostic tools and assessing manufacturer websites using Pass-Thru, looking at the problems of today to seek the solutions for tomorrow. They will be the first UK garages accredited for manufacturer security information under SERMI.
