Career Opportunities

The VTAA can be used to:

• Show technicians have the knowledge and skills expected of someone working at Level 3
• Help technicians without a Level 3 qualification to become qualified to conduct MOTs
• Show that a technician meets the Motor Vehicle Level 3 National Occupational Standards

The VTAA is not a qualification, but is a specifically designed accreditation and a lifetime achievement, meaning that once technicians have successfully completed the VTAA they will be considered equivalent to those who have studied to Level 3 via a qualification route.
