As you may have already seen we have partnered with the IAEA in trialling a new assessment format for its candidates sitting the Practical IAEA Exam.
The IAEA found that the old format didn’t reflect the actual methods of costing being utilised in today’s accident repair market. As a result, the IAEA looked to partner with the most popular platform used across the industry – ours!
By using our industry-leading assessment system to calculate the price of repair, candidates are able to gather all vehicle details and research the appropriate repair method, using VM or escribe methods, then calculate the cost of the repair using Audatex, the same techniques as they would in ‘real-world’ situations.
Not only is this a big step in the right direction for IAEA’s practical exam, but also for their appraisal process in which we will make sure it’s aligned with real world practices that work for the industry.
The change to the IAEA’s Practical Exam and IAEA RE-Accreditation will come into effect from January 1st 2018 in the UK.
