Electric Vehicle Maintenance and Training
Upgrade your AST skills!
New for Fall 2023
Times are changing and more and more people are purchasing electric and hybrid vehicles. Our Electric Vehicle Maintenance and Training course prepares Automotive Service Technicians (AST) to safely diagnose and service high voltage electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. Certified technicians, or registered AST 3rd and 4th year apprentices will build on previous understanding of conventional vehicle systems to develop skills in preparation for the increasing use of electric vehicles on our roads.
