Global online vehicle remarketing business Copart UK has achieved two more key training and quality goals in its drive for professional excellence and high standards.
Following the company’s investment in engineers of the future:
- 16 vehicle damage evaluators have passed their IMI NVQ Level 2 qualifications in Electric/Hybrid Vehicle Routine Maintenance as well as IMI NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Vehicle Damage Assessment (covering estimating systems, vehicle salvage categorisation, vehicle damage appraisal and vehicle repair methods)
- 90% of Copart’s 76-strong engineering force are now either fully qualified or studying towards AQP standard, ATA VDA or IMI NVQ VDA 3/4 qualifications
- Copart has now committed to further developing their engineers with a view to achieving full engineering qualifications, working towards their Level 4 diploma in association with Thatcham Research’s Automotive Academy
Copart UK’s engineering services manager Russ England said the growing number of electric and hybrid vehicles and ever-more complex technology makes it essential for engineers to have highly detailed levels of knowledge and competency in handling and categorising them.
“We recognise the importance of continuously upskilling our engineers to ensure that our insurance customers receive professional, accurate reports which enable them to process the claim correctly with quicker turnaround times,” he said.
