Our brand new Hybrid and Electric vehicle training course facility is based in Bradford, West Yorkshire. We are now pleased to announce that we can offer this course at a venue of your choice in the U.K or Internationally from November 2021.

The course has been developed for technicians, who are required to diagnose, remove, refit and repair Hybrid and Electrical Vehicle components. It follows the National Occupational Standard, at Level 3 and successful completion (via formal assessment), leads to a nationally recognised Level 3 qualification.

This training course will enable you to recognise, evaluate, remove and refit Hybrid and Electric Vehicle components, as well as making the system safe. You will learn how to safely use a suitable multi meter, insulation tester, the oscilloscope and a diagnostic scan tool (DTC’s and Data Stream), as well as specialist safety equipment. You will access vehicle manufacturers’ information, as this is necessary to obtain accurate and safe repair operations.

During the course we will cover:

  •  Safe system shut down and recommissioning.
  •  Methods of safe component and system test and measurement.

More Detailed Information

Hybrid and Electric Vehicles is set to be a huge growth, with many motor manufacturers declaring that the end is high for traditional petrol and diesel engine vehicles. Hybrids and Electric Vehicles may seem complicated and daunting and can cause confusion when trying to service, repair or diagnose a system fault. In addition to this, safe working practices must be adapted during routine service and repair, as well as when components are removed and refitted.
Our expertise of Hybrid and E.V’s is down to our Master Technician-Lecturer with 40 years of electrical and mechanical expertise. We have been involved with the running Hybrid and Electric Vehicles, in the diagnosis and repair (including advanced battery repairs) and training. We currently have a Hybrid/E.V in our personal fleet. We also deliver; train-the-trainer on Hybrid and Electrical Vehicles, to training companies, technical college councils and major car dealerships throughout the UK and Internationally.

We have teamed up with the Skills and Education Group, in order to have this course accredited at Level 3. One of the reasons we have done this as an anticipation of proposed health and safety legislation and/or licencing for technicians who want to work with these vehicle systems. This course meets the National Occupation Standards at Level 2 and Level 3, and is formally assessed. Successful completion of the course and the assessment, will lead to the award of a Level 3 Hybrid and Electric Vehicles qualification.

It is anticipated that Level 3 will be the minimum requirement in the future. Best practice dictates that each technical staff member should be qualified to at least level 2 (service technician). Diagnostic technicians should be qualified to level 3 (for fault diagnosis and removal, test and refit of high voltage systems) and the senior technician/foreman should be qualified to level 4. The main duty of care as a business owner is the implications or liabilities, if inadequate training for these systems isn’t provided for employees.

This course will take you through our unique approach to safe working, service and repair, remove and refit of high voltage components. Everything we cover on this course has a direct link to the practical aspect of service, repair and maintenance of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles.
