Annual Training

All MOT testers now have less than seven months to complete their mandatory annual training for the year. Although this may seem far away, the date will be nearing before you know it, and MOT testers may lose their testing status if they haven’t taken at least three hours of training and passed the online assessment by March 31st 2017.

We recommend organising your annual training now, so that you can take the time to find the right option for your business and you won’t have to worry about it for the rest of the year.

The RMI Annual Training Workbooks have proved to be the most popular option so far, as for £45 + VAT you receive a book with all the information you need to complete your three hours of training in your own time, plus unique login details so you can access and take the online assessment. What’s more, the book allows you to record your annual training by giving you something physical to keep, and there is a page you can sign a form at the back of the book to confirm that you have completed the training topics and hours required.

You can also take the training and assessment all in one day at the RMI Academy. The next dates for this option are on Wednesday 28th September, Wednesday 12th October and Thursday 27th October, and the day costs £75 + VAT.

To order a workbook, find out more about our other annual training options, or book at course at the Academy, please call us on 0845 305 4230.
