Proof of competence

IAEA Proof of Competence cards are issued to members and Associates as a demonstration of competence in light vehicle damage assessment skills in line with British Standards Institution (BSI) PAS 125 standards.

Members holding a valid Institute Proof of Competence card are recognised as being technically competent by BSI and exempt from being required to take PAS 125 ATA VDA tests.

Qualifying members are those who have passed the Institute's Practical Exam within the last five years or who hold a valid pre-April 2012 ATA VDA card.

The Institute Proof of Competence card is valid for a period of five years from the date the Institute's Practical Exam or the ATA VDA was passed.

On expiry of the card, members are required to take an Institute re-accreditation or, if they choose, retake an ATA VDA, in order to obtain a new competence card.
