Re-Development of MET technician & Senior Technician / Reaccreditation

After consulting with the accident repair industry the existing IMI accreditation Mechanical, Electrical and Trim (MET) routes have recently been redeveloped.

To assist the centres with the changes to the accreditation IMI have previously sent communications and for 7 months have made accessible all the new documents on the IMI awarding website. Also, due to the current situation the original live date has been extended to 1st June 2020.

Please Note:
With the new addition of the High Voltage – Safe Working Module within the Senior MET accreditation, centres are required to re-apply for the new routes below, via Centres Hub, using a Qualification/Accreditation Approval Application –

  • ACC-MET-3-20  IMI Accreditation MET – Senior Technician Full Route
  • ACC-AOM-MET-3-20   IMI Accreditation MET - Senior Technician – Reaccreditation

Centres will need to confirm that assessors/IQA hold a Level 3 EV qualification and have the relevant equipment to deliver, and ensure that candidates can work safely throughout the module.
