In recognition of the high standards of training provided to the Peugeot Dealer network, Peugeot’s Parts Training Centre in Coventry has become an Approved I.M.I Assessment Centre.
The training provided by the centre covers all levels and skills required within a dealer’s Parts Distribution department. It provides all Parts department employees, up to the departmental manager, with access to a structured training programme.
By following the programme, and successfully completing the required training courses, Associate membership status of the Institute of the Motor Industry (A.M.I.M.I) will be awarded, which is mapped against a National level 3 qualification. For those who do not aspire to Supervisory status, Licentiate membership (L.I.M.I.) is available, mapped against a National level 2 qualification.
Rod Philpot, Peugeot’s Parts and Service Director said: "This is the first part of Peugeot’s strategy to offer all customer facing personnel, involved in all areas of Aftersales, the opportunity to work towards a national qualification."
Sarah Sillars, Chief Executive I.M.I said: "The investment in Parts training provided by Peugeot’s Training Centre is an important initiative and I look forward to recognising the achievements of Peugeot’s Parts Distribution personnel through I.M.I membership."
Peugeot’s Business Institute has also launched their first accreditation programme for new Sales Executives. Successful completion of the three year programme will be rewarded with Associate Membership status of the Institute of the Motor Industry (A.M.I.M.I).
Since gaining I.M.I Approved Assessment Centre status in July 2003, Peugeot’s Business Institute has had a number of core training programmes accredited by the I.M.I. This has provided the opportunities for participants to earn I.M.I Quality Assured Awards, across a number of core commercial disciplines.Published 19 December 2004
