NMI's Training Academy: Exceptional Instruction Across Multiple Regions and Accredited Facilities.

The NMI Training Academy has held a reputation for outstanding instruction since our first academy opened in April 2007. We operate two accredited training facilities, one in Gauteng and the other in Cape Town, and have a presence in the KwaZulu Natal and Free State regions.

For years of training on our state-of-the-art technology and equipment and stringent annual external examinations results in our apprentices graduating as highly qualified and confident automotive artisans.

Our coursework is aligned with SETA and QCTO standards, and our skilled trainers are qualified across both the Petrol and Diesel trades. The NMI Academy’s apprenticeship course includes theoretical and practical aspects. With on-the-job training at NMI's dealership networks countrywide, our apprentices receive real-life experience in the automotive repair trade.
