Plugging the skills gap: IGA offers subsidised EV training

Published:  28 June, 2021

The IGA is offering subsidised Hybrid/EV Level 3 training to its members with a view to helping address the shortage of EV-trained technicians in the sector.

100 Hybrid/EV Level 3 courses will be available at a 60% reduction to IGA members for £250 on a first come, first served basis.

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.

Commenting on the move, Stuart James, IGA Chief Executive observed: “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.”

IGA Members can book their course by calling the IGA Member Helpline on 01788 225 908.
