The Independent Garage Association (IGA) is offering heavily subsidised Hybrid/EV Level 3 training to its members to help improve the shortage of EV trained technicians.
One hundred Hybrid/EV Level 3 courses will be available at a 60% reduction to IGA members for £250 on a first come, first served basis.
Stuart James, IGA Chief Executive comments: “The independent sector needs to be aligning itself with the government’s future plans for EVs, and currently the number of technicians who are qualified to work on the high voltage components in hybrid and electric vehicles is incredibly low.
“The IGA is totally focused on supporting the sector and using surplus funds to help members grow their businesses and plan for the future, while helping to stimulate growth for EV training, is the right thing to do.”
Courses are being offered across the country at RMI Academy of Automotive Skills sites in Lincoln, Winchester, Southam and Runcorn, and the offer is valid for two technicians per member site.
Members can book their course by calling the IGA Member Helpline on 01788 225 908
