IMI recognises Nissan South Africa, AIDC
United Kingdom’s motor industry body, Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) has announced that the Automotive Industry Development Centre (AIDC), in partnership with Nissan South Africa has successfully met the training criteria to become an IMI Approved International Centre in South Africa.
In a statement signed by Nissan Nigeria, the IMI’s approval of the AIDC/Nissan partnership is also an independent assurance of professional standards and training quality, which sets a benchmark for professionalism in the automotive industry.
After successfully completing a three-day assessment, the AIDC’s two Automotive Learning Centres in Rosslyn are now able to grant IMI International Qualifications to its learners.
Both organisations are committed to the development of automotive training and education to develop individuals who are strategic to the success of the automotive industry.
Director of HR Nissan South Africa, Nabiel Conybeare, said: “While the future of South Africa isn’t in any doubt, Nissan’s partnership with the AIDC will assist in addressing some of the challenges currently being experienced with skills development in the industry, allowing for opportunities to grow.”
“Like the AIDC, we at Nissan believes that the basic principles for success are transparency, diversity, learning, and constantly challenging people to produce their best work, he said.
AIDC Chief Executive officer, Dr David Masondo, said: “I am delighted that the Gauteng Automotive Learning Centre has been accredited by the UK based Institute of the Motor Industry. This does not only validate our skills programme but raises us to globally competitive standards. It gives us an opportunity to be part of the international automotive industry community.”
