A Revive! franchise owner has recently completed a automotive repair service course, Cosmetic Repair ATA, gaining an industry-recognised qualification.

Adam Smith opened his business in September 2009 and now runs a four van fleet. Commenting on achieving his Cosmetic Repair ATA qualification, Smith said: “When you do a job successfully for a number of years it is always interesting to review these against a new standard. With the ATA I was surprised at the new things I have learnt but I have improved the quality of my work. Going forward it is essential that I get all of my team accredited as soon as possible.”

In the month of July 2012 alone, Smith’s business turned over almost £29,500 plus VAT. Smith puts this down to good systems, a great service and some hard work from his team.

He added: “I believe that with our service ethos and the quality of workmanship that we can provide, we are streets ahead of anyone else in this sector. This is why we are in demand – and I see no reason for this demand to do anything but grow. More and more people are using mobile repairers and there are few people that can match the quality that Revive! offers.”

The Revive! Training Centre and Franchisee Training programme has been given IMI approval and Revive! can now train and assess candidates to award the Cosmetic ATA standard to technicians who meet the IMI’s exacting standards.
