To become an ATA registered an individual must pass a comprehensive and rigorous series of tests of practical skill and knowledge. To ensure that they keep up-to-date with new technologies, technicians need to be re-assessed every 3 years to maintain their accreditation.

Accredited individuals and the businesses which employ them have shown that they are committed to providing customers with the highest level of technical expertise and professional standards.

ATA accredited technicians have signed and are bound by a special Code of Conduct and they are issued with a photo identity card, so that you can be confident of their credentials.
