Point S Bolsters UK Training Programme with Bespoke ADAS Course

Point S Tyre & Autocare, the UK’s leading independent tyre dealer and car maintenance network, has successfully delivered its first IMI Level 2 Award in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Calibration (610/1338/9) training session.

Exclusive to Point S members, the first session of the brand-new course was delivered to technicians from within the network at the Hella Training Academy in Banbury, Oxfordshire. Providing delegates with knowledge of the operating principles, components, and service requirements for ADAS, the course will continue to be supplied to members in 2024. The course has been designed to enable the network’s technicians to diagnose and calibrate ADAS more accurately and efficiently, incorporating the use of live data from calibration equipment and diagnostic equipment.

Aiming to become the largest qualified and certified European network for Electric Vehicle (EV) maintenance by 2026, Point S is building a portfolio of training courses geared towards futureproofing the skillset of its technicians. In June this year, Point S delivered its inaugural bespoke training course, the Air Conditioning Service and Maintenance Level 3 Award, which proved a popular hit with members.

Jon Taylor, Point S UK and European Training Manager, said, “Having delivered our very first bespoke training course to our network earlier this year, it was essential that we kept the momentum going. That is exactly what we have achieved with our brand-new ADAS course.

“As ADAS calibration becomes more frequent in the automotive aftermarket, we are delighted to provide Point S technicians with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to work with these complicated systems. This class-leading course enables our members to not only futureproof their businesses, but the people within them.”
