Opus IVS are once again pleased to be an official sponsor of the IMI Skills Competition!
This year the search continues for the best and brightest in the automotive field. The IMI Skills Competition lays down an integral platform that allows youth apprentices to showcase and develop their skills further through several rounds of competitive testing.
The competition allows competitors to test and learn whilst improving their skills.
If you’re an employer you can also benefit as it allows you to promote your business as employing the top talent in the industry and gain additional free training for your employee.
As part of the competition testing, youth competitors will be using and gaining valuable knowledge of Opus IVS devices to aid them in the competition process.
There are several streams available, including Engineering and Technology for light vehicle technology, Heavy Vehicle Technology, Body Repair and Finishing.
Once registered, the competitors will be invited to complete the Passive round which will be an online test.
Successful competitors will then progress to the National Qualifiers which will take place from 24 May – 16 July 2021.
The National Qualifiers will be delivered remotely in the form of an online/virtual competition.
This stage of the competition can be completed anywhere, so there will be no need for any competitors to travel unnecessarily. This approach will be unaffected by any changes to Government local or national lockdown rules.
The top six competitors in each skill area will then be invited to compete in the practical Live finals in November!
