Why choose the Electrical Vehicle Training Centre?
Trainees work directly on a real high-voltage system, which has been adapted with special safety features so that it can be used without any prior qualifications. This training system provides a safe work environment and allows students and trainees to fully focus on the task at hand. All of our content is based on the worldwide existing curriculums from The City & Guilds and the IMI.
Trainees will become familiar with all the key theoretical background by means of an interactive e-learning course. Each of the theoretical sections is accompanied by practical exercises and tests of knowledge, which also help to advance vital diagnostic skills. These skills are further boosted by the built-in diagnostic system and the scrupulously selected fault scenarios. This is the only training system which gives students the opportunity to develop various diagnostic strategies involving measurements on an actual HV system with real HV voltages under the most stringent safety conditions.
In 2019 the UK committed to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 2050 to mitigate the effects of climate change. (Transport Energy Network Report, 2020). The current government focus on greener, low carbon energy and grants to encourage the switch to Electric Vehicles (EVs) will mean a greater demand for these skills in the future.
Businesses and automotive technicians will need to ensure that they have the right skills and knowledge to effectively diagnose EVs, stay safe and insurance compliant while working with the new technology.
