TRAINING


PART WORN TYRES

Tyres are a ‘safety critical item’ and the correct checking, labelling & fitting of ‘part worn tyres’ is a legal requirement.  The MVDA has written a brief guidance document, which is free to members and can be downloaded from the members ‘documents’ area.  The MVDA is also working with Training For Profit to deliver on-site training specifically for part-worn tyres.  The course is IMI-accredited, and is undertaken at your own premises, and involves both theory and practical work.  The content is shown in the MVDA guidance.  You can also contact PFT directly.  MVDA members get a discount.

RECOVERY & STORAGE OF AIR-CON (F) GAS

Due to the change in the law, F Gas qualifications have become a mandatory requirement for the depollution of all End of Life Vehicles.  Holding an F Gas certificate will considerably reduce the risk of being prosecuted and will help employees work in a safe and efficient manner when handling dangerous refrigerant gases.  This IMI accredited course consists of a small friendly class with expert staff offering training, assessment and accreditation.
