REVAMP Training Limited (RTL), a major UK-based alternative fuels training provider, has partnered up with Coventry College to bring sector leading courses to the region for the first time. The newly developed courses will be taking place at the College’s new £1.8 million electric vehicle and retrofit training facility.
“Having developed bespoke material for Coventry College early in 2022, we are delighted to support them further in delivery as they look to offer training and employment opportunities in green skills as part of a wider UK and global decarbonisation agenda,” said James Sampson, Company Director at RTL.
Delivered as part of the College’s Charge Up Your Future initiative, the courses aim to help employers in the West Midlands rise to the industrial challenges of climate change and prepare learners for careers in emission-free motoring. Coventry College unveiled its plans to help employers and Motor Vehicle and Construction students prepare for a zero-carbon future with the launch of its new dedicated training centre after securing capital investment from the Government’s Strategic Development Fund (SDF) earlier this year.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with REVAMP to bring the highest level of EV training to our state-of-the-art facility in Coventry. We hope to rise to the challenge of ensuring that the various industries operating in the region and beyond can safeguard themselves from the imminent changes posed by climate change, in turn having a positive impact on the planet, as well as on the Coventry and Warwickshire workforce,” added Gemma Knott, Vice Principal for Business Growth, Engagement & Partnerships at Coventry College.
“James is a fantastic trainer and we are delighted to have him and the rest of the REVAMP team on board to support our Charge Up Your Future provision.”
The course available as part of the Coventry College and RTL partnership include a five-day Electrification training course that incorporates the principles of Battery Development and Deployment. It will launch from Monday, September 12 2022 and will be repeated again from Monday, October 17 2022.
The Electrification courses will cover battery technology fundamentals, lithium-ion battery manufacture and battery storage, together with lithium-ion health and safety and lithium-ion battery recycling and repurposing. Meanwhile, the four-day Hydrogen courses are planned during November and December 2022, with dates to be confirmed.
RTL is a leading alternative fuelled vehicle training provider based in Middlesborough, dedicated to delivering accredited training courses alongside bespoke non-accredited continuous professional development (CPD) courses.
