Automotive

Our practical IMI-mapped programs take your students from beginner to workshop-ready

Introducing our Automotive Program

This program has been designed to allow you to build an automotive course mapped to IMI standards
that will enable your students to become hi-tech auto technicians.

A unique blend of online digital learning resources and practical equipment combines to create an automotive teaching program that will deliver the knowledge and practical skills students need to achieve success.

Our aim is to help you develop skilled technicians with a solid understanding of automotive technology and fault-finding techniques.

Built with IMI in Mind

Our learning content is mapped to IMI standards and we are continually updating our content to meet these standards. 

Automotive theory taught in a practical way… including:

cut-away automotive trainer

Sectioned Components

Exposing the inner workings of components provides a safe and accessible way of viewing how complex systems are constructed – key components are color-coded for easy identification. Our cut-aways are fitted with hand cranks to enable students and teachers to see how components interact with each other to create a fully working system.

hybrid vehicle trainer

Autotronics Panel Trainers

Our innovative computer-linked panel trainers simulate a range of complex vehicle operations that can be used in a safe classroom environment. These trainers are lightweight, freestanding and are a great resource for front-of-class teaching and group activities.

autotronics auxiliary board

Autotronics Boards

Our unique autotronics boards provide students with a practical approach to theoretical learning. Diagnostic and faultfinding skills can be developed from the safety of the classroom with these desktop systems… it’s just like the real thing!

steering component rigs

System and Component Rigs

Many automotive technology concepts are best taught using fully functioning vehicle component rigs, where an instructor can show students a wide variety of diagnostic and maintenance techniques. Students are also able to perform tasks on systems without the need for a complete vehicle, which in some cases means practical tasks can also take place in the classroom.

Medium/Heavy Truck Rigs

Just like our light vehicle system and component rigs but bigger! All of our medium/heavy truck rigs are fitted with casters to enable transportation around the workshop.

“With this program, my students can practice their diagnostic skills in the classroom and then take that knowledge and the skills into a workshop where they can do various different tests on a real vehicle or an engine rig."

- Errol Ince, Deputy Head of School of Technology at Bromley College
