Electric Vehicle Technicians work on vehicles powered solely by electricity. They perform routine maintenance like other mechanics; however, Electric Vehicle Technicians must have extensive knowledge of how lithium-ion batteries and automotive systems interact. In addition, they may replace hydraulically assisted systems with electric-powered systems, such as power-steering pumps or air-conditioning compressors, to improve fuel economy.
Certification is for individuals interested in attaining training from an ETA® International approved EV school. In this program students will develop skills in safety, troubleshooting and repairing of Electric Vehicles. Due to the high voltage (300 VDC and above) and safety issues involved, technicians are required to receive specialized training in both knowledge and hands-on skill items.
