The Redditch-based company announced plans to train one mechanic at each of its 300 UK centres in electric and hybrid maintenance.
Stefan Warhaftig, commercial director at Halfords Autocentres, said: "We want our technicians to be the very best in the business, with access to the latest training.
"This is a really exciting time for innovation in the automotive industry - we've hit a real milestone as electric and hybrid cars are becoming more and more popular and the introduction of driverless cars is just around the corner."
