Electric Vehicle / Hybrid Training 

With the growth in environmental awareness, the use of electric and hybrid vehicles (E&HVs) is increasing.  The recovery, repair, and maintenance of these vehicles outside the manufacturers and franchised dealership networks is increasing.

Our electric vehicle qualifications are nationally-recognised qualifications which allow you to demonstrate that your knowledge, skills and competence are of the standard required to work High Voltage Vehicles.

People in the motor vehicle repair and recovery industry are now more likely to come across E&HVs and as a result need to be aware of the additional hazards they may be exposed to when working with these vehicles. They may also need to develop a wider range of skills and knowledge and have access to specialist tools and equipment in order to be able to work safely.

Voltages present in E&HVs are significantly higher (currently up to 650 Volts direct current (dc)) than those used in other vehicles (12/24 Volts dc).  In dry conditions, accidental contact with parts that are live at voltages above 110 Volts dc can be fatal.  For E&HVs dc voltages between 60 and 1500 Volts are referred to as 'high voltage'. 

 

 

We also offer a pre-acquisition course for technicians who are more mechainical then electrical minded, or have been i while since putting the princables into practice.

The course refreshes technicians on

Ohms Law,

Watts Law,

Series Circuits and Parallel Circuits.

This course is designed to help technicians before starting there Electric Vehicle Qualifications.
