By autotech-nic on December 7, 2022

The RMI Academy of Automotive Skills is opening a new training site in Cheltenham, offering a comprehensive range of MOT, electric vehicle and technical training to local automotive businesses.

Stuart James, Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI) Director comments: “As the UK’s leading automotive trade body, we are delighted to be opening our fifth academy in our mission to ensure that all garages can access high quality, affordable training to grow their business, upskill their staff and improve the skills shortage in our industry.

“Our new Cheltenham site will act as a leading automotive training hub, with excellent road and rail links to South Wales, the West Midlands and South West. We look forward to supporting many more local garages and technicians with top quality training and development opportunities, including a range of hybrid and electric vehicle courses to help prepare for the increasing number of high voltage cars on our roads.”

The new RMI Academy in Cheltenham joins established facilities in Runcorn, Southam, Lincoln and Winchester. It is open to all garages in the motor trade. Preferential course prices are available for RMI members. Members of the Independent Garage Association (IGA) currently receive Hybrid/Electric Vehicle Repair Level 3 training at a heavily subsidised rate of £250 + VAT.

Courses begin in February 2023 and are available to book now by calling 01788 538 399. Visit for further course and site information.
