PDev Professional Development is the Novus approach to non-manufacturer based courses.

Each PDev course is thoroughly researched and provides material that can be used as reference text. An assessment of learning ensures that certificates are awarded to participants that have achieved a required standard. The comprehensive trainer’s notes form a part of the traceable standards of these courses. Records are kept of participant assessment scores and certificates issued, so participants’ achievements move with them.

IDA Global IDA is an innovative, web based method of assessing knowledge, skills and techniques for motor vehicle technicians.

An extensive collection of questions are split into categories that represent key subject areas. Participants attempt all of the questions presented to them. The revolutionary question and answer design and unique analysis criteria establish development needs at a level unachievable by conventional Training Needs Analysis systems. There is no simple ‘pass or fail’ - automatically generated reports highlight the development needs of individuals with a resolution of up to 150 knowledge classifications. IDA allows unrivalled flexibility and functionality.
