ATA Re-Accreditation Congratulations

Nielio

Congratulations to Niel Harmston, our longest standing employee for passing his ATA VDA re-accreditation with 97%!

Niel has lived in the Sleaford area all his life and was the first Vehicle Damage Assessor employed by AW. Niel has been employed by our prestige Lincolnshire branch for more than 14 years.

While there have been many changes throughout the industry, Niel has managed to keep current and as of late has ditched his clipboard (which he was quite attached to after all these years) for his iPad, to use AudaMobile.

The accreditation was implemented by the British Standard Institute (BSI) PAS125 programme to licensed bodyshops in the UK in 2007/8, to ensure those who are assessing vehicle damage are fully trained and competent to do so on today’s modern and complicated vehicles. The accreditation has to be re-achieved every three years to ensure VDAs are aware of the latest repair methods and technological changes in construction.

Congratulations again Niel, you are a valued member of the team. Here’s to the next 14 years!
