Technicians attending independent EV specialist Cleevely Group’s first ever ‘At Ease With EV’ training course held at its Cheltenham centre have hailed it as a ‘game-changer’.

Cleevely Group, which services and repairs electric vehicles (EVs), launched its new training course to build the confidence of technicians who have IMI Level 2, 3, or 4 qualifications but lack regular opportunity to practise EV skills in their workshop.

“It’s a great opportunity to learn from the best,” said Sean Savage of Springwell Motors in West Yorkshire, having attended the course earlier this month.

“The tasks we were given replicate what you’d get in your own workshop. It gave us the self-assurance that we can work on EVs and that they’re not something we should be shying away from. I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking to embrace EV.”

Attendees to the hands-on training course engaged in a wide range of practical activities involving a 2018 Nissan Leaf and a Tesla Model Y Performance.

Topics covered included interlocks, charging issues, testing and fixing high-voltage batteries, EV servicing, common problems, and an in-depth demonstration of Tesla’s service mode.

“We aim to bolster the confidence of technicians who lack regular opportunities to practise EV skills in their workshop,” said Cleevely Group. “It’s remarkable to witness the light bulb moment when technicians realise that working on EVs isn’t as daunting as they once believed.”

The next ‘At Ease With EV’ training course takes place on Saturday 20 July, with limited places still available to book now. The course will be repeated on Saturday 12 October.

Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis for just £295 + VAT per delegate. Lunch and refreshments will be provided, along with a certificate of attendance – which counts towards CPD.
