1. Please tell us a little bit about the team that participated in the Electric Vehicles course – what are their backgrounds and what was your aim with the training?

Our Fleet Sales & Marketing Team were all given the opportunity to undertake the course as part of their continual professional development, the aim being to accelerate their knowledge and understanding of EVsto better support our customers.

2. Why did you choose the Renewable Energy Institute as your professional training course provider?

We were looking for an external training provider who could offer us an accredited course, to form part of our wider EV training programme.

3. How has the training helped you with your current projects?

We started the distance learning course during the first lockdown, so at a difficult time for many businesses we chose to invest in our employees and give them something positive to focus on. The EV knowledge gained from the course has ensured that our team are experts in the Fleet industry when talking to our customers about EV adoption, something they are now using daily.

The team members at Volkswagen Financial Services (UK) Fleet were very pleased with the course:
