Electric Vehicle and Hybrid Electric Vehicle Training

Specialist training for automotive technicians, delivered in person by GC experts.

Starting in Gloucester from January 2023.

Become a Qualified Electric Vehicle (EV) or Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) Mechanic

Stay ahead of the game

According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, the sales of battery-electric cars have soared 78% in the last year alone, with one in every five cars sold in the UK being electric.  

With less than 5% of mechanics being qualified to work on EV/HEV, we have designed a new training programme to address skill gaps in the motor industry and support the sustainability agenda.

To meet the growing demand for EV/HEV-qualified mechanics, we invite Gloucestershire-based auto technicians, to advance their skills with a range of short courses launching in the New Year at Gloucester Campus. 

You will be able to learn and get qualified up to Level 4 through courses taught in person by experienced lecturers.
