New ‘At Ease With EV’ training proves popular test

Technicians attending the first ever ‘At Ease With EV’ training course held at Cleevely EV in Cheltenham on Saturday April 6th have hailed it as a ‘game-changer’.


Cleevely Group, a pioneer in the servicing and repairs of 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 practice 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 practice EV skills in their workshop,” said Matt. “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 20th July, with limited places still available to book now. The course will be repeated on Saturday 12th October, for those who missed out on the earlier dates. 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.


The training takes place at the award-winning Cleevely EV workshop, the UK’s most renowned independent EV specialist. It brings an exclusive chance to learn directly from Matt and acclaimed technical trainer, Alistair Finch.
