The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) has launched two new electric vehicle courses to help those swapping to zero-emissions driving. The courses are tailored for 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. 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 new 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 heavily discounted for those working for BVRLA member organisations.
One of the courses focuses on cars, while the other helps commercial vehicle drivers in electric vans and trucks. The courses are four hours in total, split into two modules of two hours. These courses are a great idea for those who might have reservations about driving electric, as well as those who want to get the most from their vehicle.
Mark Pow, BVRLA head of learning and development, 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 electric vehicle course for vans and trucks is taking place on 14 April 2021, whilst the electric car course is 19 May 2021.
