Register your staff for FREE EV training sessions in Used EV Sales and Light Commercial Vehicles, courtesy of Energy Saving Trust.

Demand for used electric vehicles (EVs) is raising fast and, with the phase out of internal combustion engine vehicles by 2030, you may already be experiencing a spike in enquiries about electric vehicles (EVs). Most of your customers will be first-time EV drivers and will therefore seek a lot of guidance from you before buying!

We are pleased to announce that Energy Saving Trust continues to offer free online training sessions, fully funded by Transport Scotland, to help equip your staff with essential knowledge on EVs. Ensuring your team is up-to-date with the fast-evolving EV technology and market trends, will not only reassure your customers but could help to boost your sales.

There are currently spaces available on two upcoming workshops. The first will focus on Used EVs - sales while the second will cover electric light commercial vehicles (LCVs). Both sessions will also provide:
• an overview of market trends and client profiles
• enhance your team’s expertise about EV technology
• equip you with the best knowledge to provide advice on charging, efficient driving and the loans and grants available to your customers
