Celsus now offering ‘Tick Mark’ DAB training

Celsus, distributors of the DABmotion range of digital radio solutions, can now award the installer training needed for government Tick Mark approval.

Digital Radio UK (DRUK) administers the Tick Mark, which was launched late last year to help highlight the most trustworthy products and services.

To advertise the Tick Mark as a Registered DAB Installer, garages must meet several requirements, central to which is employing at least one technician who holds a current  ‘IMI DAB Radio Installation Technician Accreditation’ .

DABmotion training joined The Institute of the Motor Industry’s (IMI) Quality Assured Programme (QAP) in February 2014. The latest development means they can now award the full qualification needed for Tick Mark Approval too.

“The DABmotion training programme can typically be completed in a morning,” said Managing Director Paul Baker. “Garages then wishing to achieve the Approved Installer qualification would also complete a short online test, before a further practical assessment in the afternoon.

“We focus on our DABmotion range so that qualified technicians gain the practical skills to undertake installations immediately afterwards.”

DABmotion training covers fitting replacement DAB head units, DAB adaptors, antenna installation and fault-finding, with hints around antenna installation being particularly useful. Besides giving a route to Tick Mark approval, the training’s backed with the promise that anyone completing it will be able to fit working DAB audio into any car.

With the DABmotion ROLA digital radio conversion kit also carrying Tick Mark approval, Celsus say they can now offer garages a complete solution for digital radio conversion services.

DABmotion is a leading brand of in-car digital radio retrofit solutions. The DAB1001 kit brings DAB to any car by using the latest FM modulation techniques, linked with AFC, to decode digital radio and converts this into an FM signal that is transmitted directly to the original car radio wirelessly.

The DABmotion antenna included with the DAB1001 kit can be fitted to either the front or rear window of a vehicle. The DABmotion interface can be located in the glove box, behind the vehicle dashboard, or even in the rear of the vehicle. It may be necessary to consult a qualified vehicle installer about connections, suitable location for the interface or antenna position.
