Two new electric vehicle training courses have been launched by the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA)
The new courses are aimed at those providing operational and technical support to business fleets and personal customers looking to switch to electric vehicles.
The BVRLA’s latest Quarterly Leasing Survey showed that nearly one-fifth of members’ leasing fleet now has some form of electrification, and this is set to grow as BVRLA rental and leasing members have pledged to register 400,000 new battery electric cars and vans per year by 2025.
These one-day courses, designed specifically for those in a customer-facing role within the vehicle rental, leasing and fleet industry, are available to non-members and are discounted for those working for BVRLA member organisations.
One of the courses focuses on cars, while the other on commercial vehicles.
BVRLA head of learning and development, Mark Pow, said: “I am delighted to bring to market these new online training courses that will give delegates a full overview of the EV charging landscape and the current and developing EV market.
“Most importantly, they will provide valuable support and guidance to those advising customers considering a move to electric.
“It is crucial that the industry develops its knowledge to effectively support customers in the adoption of electric vehicles and these courses will go some way towards achieving that.”
The next scheduled date for the EV course for vans and trucks is taking place on April 14, while the EV course for cars is May 19.
