Motus Technical Academy, previously known as Imperial Technical Training Academy opened the first technical training centres in Cape Town 2008 and Germiston 2009 as part of a joint venture between Imperial Automotive Retail and Associated Motor Holdings to address the need to increase qualified Artisans in South Africa for the Automotive Industry.
Motus Holdings Limited was listed on the JSE in November 2018, following its unbundling from Imperial Holdings Limited, which led to the name change of Imperial Technical Training Academy (ITTA) to Motus Technical Academy (MTA).
Motus Technical Academy has 4 Technical Training Centres represented in 3 South African Provinces, namely: Gauteng, Western Cape and Free State. The Technical Training Centres offer 6 automotive trades, skills programmes and short courses from the Motus network and in some of the largest private companies in South Africa.
Over the years, Motus Technical Academy managed to maintain high quality Technical Training for the Automotive Industry through the use of the latest training methods, materials and systems, driven by innovative technologies and focused on the need to address the critical shortage of technical skills within the automotive industry.
At Motus Technical Academy, application of learning is imperative in and central to successfully developing an apprentice. It is therefore a prerequisite for Apprenticeship training to take place in collaboration with host employers/dealerships, where practical learning can be applied as integral part of the Artisan development. This model provides a relevant mix of both practical Apprentice training and world-class theoretical training at the Training Centres and the best on-the-Job experience available. All Motus Technical Academies are geared in both equipment, technology and teaching methodology towards consistently meeting the high standards that the motor industry demands.
