The future of cars is changing. Can you take the HEAT?

With new zero emission vehicle registrations rising sharply, the growth of Electric Vehicle offers tremendous opportunities for businesses that are ready to embrace electric.

To be ready, businesses and individuals must invest in the right Electric Vehicle training to ensure their employees have the necessary skills and knowledge to accommodate future demand.

Hybrid Electric Automotive Training (HEAT) at Blackburn College is set to be the north’s leading provider with the latest technology and training equipment for supporting electrical/hybrid teaching and upskilling for motor vehicle professionals.

With predictions showing there will be more than 6.5 million battery/electric vehicles on our roads by 2030, HEAT is dedicated to developing training that meets the demands of future EV technologies.
