Electric Vehicle Training: Fast-track Level 2 & 3 - 8 module e-learning, plus 1 day centre based assessment.

Our Fast-track Hybrid and Electric vehicle training course has been designed 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 programme covers the learning element at your home or place of work, via e-learning. The e-learning course contains 8 modules, which will enable you to recognise, evaluate remove and refit hybrid and electric vehicle components, as well as making the system safe.

You will learn to safely use a suitable multimeter, insulation tester, the oscilloscope and a diagnostic scan tool (DTC’s and Data Stream) as well as specilist safety equipment.

When you book the course your assessment is booked for the corresponding date. You simply have to complete the e-learning course prior to attending the face-to-face assessment.

The assessment day comprises of a workshop practical assessment plus an online assessment. Successful completion of the e-learning and the assessment day will result in the IMI L3 EV Accredited Qualification.

More Detailed Information

Hybrid and Electric Vehicle is a set to be a huge growth area with many motor manufacturers declaring that the end is nigh for traditional petrol and diesel engined vehicles. Hybrids and electric vehicle 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 adopted during routine service and repair, as well as when components are removed and refitted.

Our expertise of hybrid and EV is long and wide. We have been involved with the running hybrid and electric vehicles, in their diagnosis and repair (including advanced battery repairs) and training since the mid 2000’s. We currently have a hybrid/EV in our personal fleet. We also deliver train-the-trainer on hybrid and electrical vehicle to training companies and technical colleges throughout the UK.

We have teamed up with the IMI in order to have this course accredited at Level 3. One of the reasons we have done this is in 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 Qualification in Hybrid and Electric Vehicle.

It is anticipated that Level 3 will 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. There may duty of care implications  or liabilities for business owners if adequate 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.

During the e-learning course you will cover:

Module 1 – Introduction

Module 2 – Electric Drive

Module 3 – Forms Of EV Drive

Module 4 – Safety Systems

Module 5 – System Components

Module 6 – Traction Motors

Module 7 – EV Charging

Module 8 – Battery Management Systems

This course acts as a gateway to our 3 day advance EV and Hybrid diagnostics course (IMI Level 4).
