ELVES TrainingProgram | PR Photography & Video.
Lensmen photo and video team were delighted to record the inaugural ELVES training program hosted by the Nissan Academy. Due to the increase in electric cars being bought, this programme is designed to show Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) members the safe handling of end-of-life electric, hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles. Furthermore, the training is the first workshop/classroom-based course of its kind in Ireland and is free of charge to attendees. Soon, the new ELVES training programme will be open to all ATFs around Ireland.
Nissan Academy in Naas hosted one of the inaugural sessions. Programme availability will widen nationwide as awareness of the course increases. Allowing all Irish ATFs to access the training programme. From here, Elves hopes they can expand knowledge and expertise across the country, supporting all ATFs in developing competence in handling this new technology. Because this was the first training program, our team photographed and recorded the day in Naas. Even our team described that as incredibly informative and very useful.
