Four Wheel Alignment –

IMI Certificate AOM-012

On successful completion of this course participants will gain accreditation of IMI Certificate AOM-012

Duration: 1 Day

Aims and Training Objectives

  • Demonstrate their skills and ability in correctly carrying out a four-wheel alignment following manufacturer’s technical instructions.
  • Demonstrate their skills and ability in correctly checking and adjusting to manufacturer’s specifications.
  • Demonstrate their ability to correctly interpret vehicle wheel alignment data against vehicle manufacturer specification.
  • Find, understand, and correctly follow approved researched repair methods / manufacturer’s technical Four-wheel alignment data.

Course Outline will include

  • How to identify and follow approved researched repair methods / manufacturer’s technical data
  • Carry out prerequisite checks to tyres, steering and suspension, ensure correct pressures, weight loading and ride height.
  • Prepare the work area for four-wheel alignment to take place including correctly setting up equipment.
  • How to carry out four-wheel alignment following manufacturer’s technical instructions.
  • How to compare both sets of wheel alignment and geometry measurements and specification data.
  • How to Identify any measurements that deviate from manufacturer’s specification.
  • How to check for wear, damage and adjust to manufacturer’s specification.
  • How to carry out final quality checks to the vehicle.

LEARNING at Arm Academy

ARM Classroom

Theory and interactive demonstrations and discussion.

Interactive demonstrations in our classroom lectures utilise CLEVER TOUCH IMPACT PLUS interactive technology.

Interactive demonstrations are used in The ARM Classroom to demonstrate the application of the concept, skill, or knowledge relevant to the lecture topic. The lecture is active with the demonstration structured to incorporate opportunities for participants to interact actively, analyse and reflect directly on the training material relevant to a specific learning task.

“Any questions?,” question time throughout and post lectures, all participants are requested to spend time reflecting on the lecture thus far and writing down one or two questions. Questions are submitted anonymously by participants by means of interactive pads supplied to each participant in a simple text-based format, rather than calling on them one at a time. This enables the instructor to get a sense of question trends and choose the best ones to address.

Pass the Pointer is used for visual content: A complex, intricate, or detailed image is placed on the screen with participants given the laser pointer to identify components or key features or ask questions about items they do not understand.


The Interactive induction in simulation creates a realistic environment that enables participants to learn and understand the risks associated with working in an auto body repair workshop while in a controlled environment, that replicates the workplace. The ARM Academy is equipped with a practical training area designed and created to deliver the workshop induction training in a simulated setting where training can be stopped, discussed, and re-started at any point to support specific learning requirements.

This simulated environment contains the equipment and materials that would be present in a contemporary workplace. The ARM Academy has engaged with the repair industry to establish current workplace activities in order to ensure the training strategies and simulated environments align with current workplace practice. Regular discussion with the repair industry and insurance stakeholders as well as participant feedback ensures that the simulated environment remains appropriate to the current industry requirement and operates as designed.
