Riverpark Trainers

Our tutors are highly respected in the “Motor Industry”, they are fully qualified in their specific field, they are up-to date with modern vehicle design, construction and repair methods. As they also assess qualified technicians as part of IMI Accreditation they must maintain their industry knowledge. This ensures the most modern skills are then passed on to our apprentices.

Our tutors often go the extra mile to provide student support, be that vocational skills or essential skills support. If necessary we will focus on any individuals needs and provide one to one training to support any student over a difficult area.
