AFP announces date for next ‘Making the Switch to EVs’ course

By / 2 weeks ago / UK News / No Comments

The AFP is planning to host further sessions of its dedicated EV training programme on the back of a highly successful first course.

The AFP said there has been a terrific interest in the ‘Making the Switch to EVs’ course, which was first held earlier this month

The ‘Making the Switch to EVs’ training will next be held on Tuesday 20 April, starting at 9:30am.

The training lasts four hours online and is run via Microsoft Teams.

It will be led by the AFP’s Jon Burdekin, a fleet consultant with more than 30 years of experience in the sector with companies such as Alphabet and GE Capital Fleet Services who has developed a specialist interest in EVs.

There are five modules, starting with a market overview examining the current upsurge in interest in EVs, progressing through how to evaluate your fleet’s potential to electrify, analysing the cost and environmental benefits of switching to EVs, managing the real world transition and, finally, overseeing ongoing EV operations in a business-as-usual environment.

Peter Eldridge, director at the AFP, said: “There has been a terrific interest in this course, which has been designed to help businesses make the transition in a structured and informed fashion.

“The content provides a broad spectrum of the essential requirements for anyone who is planning on adding EVs to their fleet in the near future.

“We’ve priced the course to make it highly accessible and we’re also aiming to make it extremely interactive, with Q&A sessions and other online means of communication to ensure that everyone attending can derive the maximum benefit.

“We’re planning to repeat the course regularly throughout 2021 and we are certain that demand for fleet expertise in this area will continue to grow.”

The cost is £225 for AFP and ICFM members and £295 for non-members. For further details and to register, click here.
