This course comprises of a combination of theory using our latest digital platforms such as LJ Create and hands-on practical sessions where you will work with highly trained teachers on real electric vehicles and the latest training rigs in our newly designed Hybrid Technology suite. Candidates successfully completing this qualification will acquire significant core knowledge and skills, and the ability to remove and replace EV and HV high voltage components.
The course is aimed at skilled technicians who have an interest in gaining the technical knowledge and practical skills to work safely when carrying out routine maintenance work on Electric and Hybrid vehicles. This course is for Motor Vehicle Maintenance, Mechanical Electrical Trim or Accident Repair Technicians who may encounter Electric/Hybrid vehicles within a routine working situation. The Level 3 qualification can only be completed following attainment of the Level 2 award (DF0223MQ/1).
The unit assessments are made up of two components:
● Practical tasks (set by City and Guilds)
● Written Assignment (set by City and Guilds).
On successful completion of this course, candidates will be awarded City and Guilds certification.
Upon successful completion of this course successful candidates can progress into employment working confidently on the high voltage side of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles.
