Stuart James, IGA Chief Executive commented: “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 focussed 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.
