More on Electric Vehicle Training

This year, The Cornwall College Group (TCCG) with Truro and Penwith College are working in partnership to deliver the £2.4 million Skills Accelerator project. This new project is set to drive forward the research and training of electric vehicle engineers in the UK, and focuses on curriculum and skills development in the electric vehicle and emerging green technology industries for businesses and the workforce of the future.

The new range of Electric vehicle courses is launched in conjunction with the Institute of Motor Industry and will add electrical vehicle training free of charge to all their motor vehicle apprenticeships at St Austell and Camborne campuses. Courses on offer as part of the project include a Level 1 award in electrical/hybrid vehicle awareness, Level 2 award in electrical/ hybrid vehicle hazard management, Level 3 award in electrical/hybrid vehicle system repair and replacement, and a Level 4 award in diagnosis, testing and repair of electric/hybrid vehicles and components.

As part of this project, new training centers are created across the campuses, comprising new workshops, laboratory environments, and virtual learning platforms.
