Autel Adds EV Training to On-Site Academy Classes

The first two-day EV diagnostic training class will be held October 3-4 and include lectures and hands-on instruction. 

Autel announced it added EV Diagnostics and Maintenance to its Roster of on-site academy classes.

The first two-day EV diagnostic training class is scheduled for October 3-4 at the Autel Port Washington, NY, headquarters and will include lectures and hands-on instruction. Classes are intended for current and potential owners of Autel EV diagnostic tablets. Current and future vehicle and battery tools also will be discussed or demonstrated. 

The 16-hour course is designed to give students a thorough understanding of how hybrid and electric vehicles work and advise them on the equipment and tools needed to start servicing electric vehicles safely and efficiently, Autel says.

Electric vehicle diagnostic and maintenance training will dominate the class with classroom and hands-on instruction on servicing electric vehicles’ key components, including in-depth-traction battery pack analysis, battery maintenance system controls, and the workings of converters, inverters, and motor generators.

“There are nearly 3 million plugin electric vehicles on U.S. roads today, with new EV and Hybrid models released yearly by new and legacy brands,” said John Forro, Autel trainer, and EV diagnostics specialist. “The time is now for shop owners and technicians to start or continue their electric vehicle diagnostics training and expand their customer base to EV drivers.

“Autel offers a great training experience at its facility. Classes are limited to twenty students, so every question gets answered, and each student can examine vehicles, components, and modules carefully.” 

Also available is an intensive two-day course focusing on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) calibrations with an overview of diagnostics and alignment processes, Autel says. This 16-hour course provides students with a thorough understanding of the technology and functionality of these safety systems, and how to diagnose, service, and calibrate them. The Academy facility houses the complete line of Autel calibrations systems and features the new Autel ADAS Bay Max 14K flush-mounted alignment lift.
