Hybrid Course Level 2

600,00

This unit is for people who work on or near electric and electric/hybrid light vehicles. Examples of these job roles include: vehicle fitters, mechanics and technicians, vehicle electricians, recovery specialists, vehicle inspectors, body repair specialists and refinishers. The unit includes essential knowledge of the hazards associated with electric and electric/hybrid vehicles and the precautions to follow to avoid these. It enables the learner to understand how to safely isolate and reinstate the high voltage system and to remove and replace high voltage components.

We have teamed up with the ABC 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 unit will cover the following;

1. Understand the risks and hazards associated with electric/hybrid light vehicles
