Who is it suitable for?
This is a flexible qualification fundamentally designed for young candidates, ideally those on an IMI Apprenticeship scheme. It suits both lower level candidates; who discover the motor vehicle environment is one that they can flourish in, and for those 'young engineers' with potential.
The IMI Extended Diploma provides individuals a broad breadth of learning within four Applied Units. The criteria are contextualised for the retail motor industry. The Applied Units include:
- Vehicle Science
- Vehicle Maths
- ICT for Vehicle Repair
- Electric & Electronics
A key aspect of the IMI Extended Diplomas qualifications is their close relationship to Life Skills, i.e. Functional Skills / ESW. Candidates also gain a broad knowledge and understanding of:
- health and safety in the workplace
- other skills associated with working on competition vehicles.
For some learners this qualification could prepare them for progression to further learning and training. For others, this qualification could also provide a useful recognition of their practical skills and knowledge, to aid their step from one job role to another.
Knowledge is assessed via:
- practical assessments in a motor vehicle workshop environment,
- online multiple-choice testing
For the written and practical assessments please see the equivalent VRQ.
