Awareness training for all motor industry personnel
This IMI Accredited Professional Development Certificate training course is designed to provide personnel who work with, near or around Hybrid and Electric Vehicles, a sufficiently broad awareness to ensure they are both well informed, safe and can confidently communicate with customers about these vehicles.

Candidates enrolled in this 2.5 hour online course will be granted three months access to ensure it can be completed at a time which fits in with you and your other business objectives. This course can be completed in one go or through multiple logins throughout the three month access period. All of the training is conducted online through watching our interactive video based chapters and once completed, all of the training material can be revisited multiple times too.
