What’s on at the RMI Academies - January 2018


Looking to kickstart your New Year with some automotive training? The RMI Academy of Automotive Skills is a ‘one stop shop’ for all your training and certification needs.

Our Academies have a focus on MOT training, annual training and technical training, in order to deliver the best training at the best price without commercial interests.

Both of our training venues are designed to be easily reached for your convenience. Our Runcorn site is located on the M56, close to the M6 and M62, near Manchester, Liverpool and Chester. The new Mersey Gateway bridge, running across the River Mersey between Widnes and Runcorn, also opened last month, meaning easier access to your local RMI Academy than ever before. Our Southam site has easy access across the Midlands, with a central location near the M1, M6 and M40, and is also accessible from London and the South West.

To view the available courses at either of our Academies, you can use the calendars below to see our January training dates. To book a course or for more information, please call the Member Helpline on 0845 305 4230. If you can’t find any suitable training dates on our calendar please give us a call to discuss your needs.

To see further availability, you can also view the Southam and Runcorn calendars in full.

RMI Academy training centres are open to all MOT Testing Stations; however, members of the RMI can take advantage of preferential prices as a benefit of membership.
