PAAS Ltd was founded in September 2009 by Managing Director, Phil Archer to deliver training and assessment for IMI VDA (formally ATA VDA). Initially working for Thatcham Automotive Academy the company has now expanded to deliver VDA and VRQ Hybrid Electric Vehicle training and assessment at Levels 2 and 3 at centres and at workplaces across the country.  

Phil has been in the motor industry for over 47 years and is a former President of the Institute of Automotive Engineer Assessors.  He was one of the original team that set up the IMI ATA VDA Assessments and sat on the expert working committee for many years, so he has a unique insight to the requirements of VDA.  Phil is also a Member of the Society of Education and Training, holding Qualified Teaching Learning and Skills (QTLS).

The company has gained a reputation for delivering quality training, with outstanding success for candidates.  We give quality and commitment, but at prices that are affordable. The company is an Approved IMI Awards Centre for the ATA VDA Part A Assessment, Hybrid Electric Vehicle at VRQ Level 2 and Level 3, and our 'Vital VDA’ Course has been granted IMI Awards QAP status.

Our flexible approach gives our clients choice and can be less disruptive to business besides giving savings on travel and accommodation.  If required, and at no extra cost, some courses can be held over a weekend.

We work very closely with three centres around the country that deliver the IMI VDA Assessment, so we can deliver training either at a client’s premises, and then attend the closest centre, or we can make arrangements to deliver the course and the assessment at the closest centre.
