Education

At the core of the IAEA are its qualifications.

Engineer assessors who achieve IAEA qualifications are highly regarded by insurance companies, the motor trade, the public and UK courts (where qualified IAEA members are often engaged as expert witnesses).

Qualifications are as follows:

  • IAEA written examinations
  • IAEA oral examination
  • IAEA vehicle valuation and salvage categorisation Test (Bridging examination)
  • IAEA practical examination
  • Practical re-accreditation examination

Distance learning

Study for written qualifications is generally completed via distance learning modules supported by Institute distance learning tutors.

IAEA practical exam preparation training

Thatcham Training Academy and Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), in conjunction with the IAEA, offer pre-examination training for the practical exam throughout the year.

Thatcham IAEA assessor apprenticeship
