Vantage Toyota Preston are proud to be supporting their local college!

At Vantage Toyota Preston, the local community is extremely important to the whole team and they always strive to support the community when possible. 

Most recently, Vantage Toyota Preston have teamed up with Training 2000 in order to help increase awareness about Hybrid Electric Vehicles within the automotive sector, through a number of safety courses which are being run by Training 2000, a North West training provider. The automotive centre is now able to deliver Level 2 & Level 3 Awards in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Operation and Maintenance thanks to the support of the team at Vantage Toyota Preston who have pledged to loan the programme the latest Toyota Hybrid Electric Vehicles. The qualification also provides the essential knowledge and skills for members of the emergency services who may attend an incident involving a high voltage hybrid electric vehicle. The UK has one of the fastest growing ultra-low emission vehicle markets in the world, to support this there is the need for fully trained technicians.

Ian Graham, Centre Principal at Toyota Preston said:

"When Training 2000 approached us for some support, we agreed that educating people in Hybrid vehicles was an excellent idea and are more than happy to support them throughout this programme. I think it's brilliant that people are being educated in the newest automotive technology and the Hybrid vehicles are certainly the most up and coming."

Steve Hodgson, Business Manager for Automotive said:

“It’s great that Vantage Toyota are supporting Training 2000 with the delivery of what is a really important qualification for anyone who may need to work around a vehicles hybrid electric system – the relationship with Vantage and the use of Toyota Hybrid electric vehicles for use during training, has given us the opportunity to help candidates understand the safety aspects of the high voltage system, also increasing their skills and awareness, whilst meeting BSI standards.”
