Electric Vehicles/Hybrid Technology
An area of considerable growth within recent years has been with Hybrid-Electric Vehicles, not only full electric cars from Tesla and BMW but also performance hybrids from Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche, to name just a few. Almost all manufacturers are in the process of releasing a Hybrid vehicle within the next year or so. These vehicles contain high voltage batteries, and have components which operate at up to 650V AC! This means the vehicle has more power than an electric chair – and failure to follow the correct procedures when disabling the high voltage system could cause injury or death.
In other European countries, it is now a legal requirement that you hold a qualification in Hybrid-Electric Vehicle Technology, to allow you to service and maintain these vehicles correctly and safely. We have trained technicians to handle these types of vehicles correctly, in accordance with the strict manufacturer procedures and health and safety guidelines.
