EV Maintenance Training

SUNY Canton and the Center for Workforce, Community & Industry Partnerships is providing a two-day electric vehicle (EV) safety training course for mechanics.

This course is designed to introduce electric vehicle (EV) technology, systems, and safety to a variety of workers involved in the vehicle maintenance, service, and repair sectors.  During this course, participants will become familiar with EV’s and will be able to describe electric vehicle technology to customers, employees, and supervisors. A focus on working safely around electric vehicles will be emphasized. Electric vehicle facility preparation, required tooling, personal protective equipment, and emergency response will be covered in detail with the goal of preparing participants for implementing EV service, repair, and diagnosis in the workplace. The course concludes with a 20-question exam resulting in a certificate of completion. Payment and participation also includes one set of sized EV electrical safety gloves ($200 value).

Cost (includes one set of EV gloves) = $550

If your agency is sending more than one participant, you will receive reduced tuition for one attendee ($450 – includes one set of EV gloves).
