GS Yuasa announces IMI partnership

GS Yuasa Academy has become the first battery training program to partner with The Institute of the Motor Industry. 

The online learning platform will provide users who have completed all courses the opportunity to become a fully-fledged member of the IMI.

GS Yuasa Academy features over 20 training courses and covers every step of a battery’s ‘journey’ – from leaving the shelf, through ongoing maintenance, to end of service life.

Once users have successfully completed all GS Yuasa Academy courses, they will be eligible to apply for IMI certification and membership through the platform. If they decide to do so they will then receive a printed certificate, membership pack and a range of benefits from the institution.

By becoming an IMI member, users can join a global community of best practice, get access to exclusive training, careers information and advice and benefit from personal and business discounts.

Ian Newham, Training Manager at GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK, said: “We are extremely proud to partnering with IMI through our GS Yuasa Academy online learning platform. We’ve worked hard to make the academy the most comprehensive learning solution available and this partnership certainly does that. We’re pleased to be able to give industry professionals the opportunity to join such a highly valued institute of the automotive sector.

“We’ve seen incredible engagement since the launch of GS Yuasa Academy – workshops, technicians, distributors and individuals have all rallied behind it. We know they love the broad range of content and the dynamic way in which it’s delivered. Each module only takes a few minutes to complete and can be completed at your own pace. The fact that users can simply leave the site and then pick up where they left off is a real bonus for technicians and workshop owners with a busy work schedule too.”
