Electric / Hybrid Vehicles Awareness Course
With electric vehicle sales predicted to reach 45 billion worldwide by 2040, the next twenty years are set to dramatically change the automotive market.
A recent report commissioned by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI), indicates that the social benefit of EVs, connected and autonomous vehicles are likely to bring about 320,000 newly-created industry jobs, and of course, these jobs will require an expanded skill set from existing automotive engineers.
This course is designed to give delegates an appreciation of the different types of electric and hybrid vehicles, dangers of electricity, basic electrical theory and legislation.
Is it right for me?
The course is designed for anybody who works in the automotive industry and is new to Electric Vehicles. Assessment is a multiple-choice question paper to test knowledge. Delegates must pass the assessment to receive certification.
