Toronto, Ontario – August 20, 2018 -- Auto Career Development Center (ACDC) will be hosting a three day HEV, PHEV and EV course in Worcester, Massachusetts, instructed by company owner Craig Van Batenburg.
The newly developed class, which runs three days from September 5-7, is based on both modern technology and teaching methods.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn inside the ACDC Center, a unique facility that provides students with a balanced mix of classroom experience and hands-on training.
Over the course of the three days trainees will gain knowledge in a variety of fields including HV battery systems, regenerative breaking and high voltage air conditioning systems. In addition, a large variety of HEV’s along with scan tools and scopes will be available for those enrolled in the course.
Included with the three day training is a 26 hour online course, designed to help prepare those headed into the class. The online training is available to students up to three months past the course's conclusion.
Upon finishing the course, attendees will have the opportunity to write a test to become a ACDC qualified hybrid technician. The test is available two weeks after the completion of the training and requires a minimum mark of 80 percent to receive the designation.
Van Batenburg and ACDC have been providing Hybrid training resources since 2000 and EV training resources since 2008. Van Batenburg now works full time training, consulting and instructing.
Classes for the course run from 8:30 a.m. till 5:00 p.m., Wednesday till Friday.
If the trip to Massachusetts is too far, Canadians will have the opportunity to learn from Van Batenburg when ACDC comes to Canada in January, in partnership with aftermarket retailer AARO.
"Being able to come to Canada is great opportunity, we have trained over 200 Canadian shop owners and industry workers in the past through our ACDC courses here in Worcester," said Van Batenburg.
