High-Voltage Safety Training for Electric Vehicles

Safety Training for the Future of Mobility

High-Voltage Training

Electric and hybrid vehicles are the future of the automotive industry. By 2030, electric vehicles are projected to account for 32% of the U.S. automotive market, growing to 45% by 2035.

As the number of electric vehicles on the road increases, it’s critical that each member of your team be prepared to handle the potential dangers associated with high-voltage systems and components. In fact, they may already deal with battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and should be aware of the associated risks. As a leader in safety, DEKRA has created comprehensive training for high-voltage safety in the automotive industry.

Our training covers practical information, such as:

  • Identifying and locating high-voltage components
  • How to work safely in proximity to high-voltage components
  • How to determine whether a vehicle is de-energized
  • De-energizing procedures
  • Appropriate safety equipment and personal protective equipment
  • First aid and emergency procedures

EV Charging

This training is important for a wide range of employees beyond technicians. This includes managers, supervisors, office staff, and support personnel in service and collision repair facilities. Additionally, insurance customer support personnel should understand how to handle customer inquiries related to hybrid and electric vehicle (EV) accidents and malfunctions. Automotive manufacturers, battery recycling, EV battery repair, and EV device manufacturers and suppliers can all benefit from high-voltage safety training.

The in-person and online training curriculum can be modified to the needs of the customer and offered with a blended learning approach. Online training is offered through a series of modules and can be tailored to different groups of personnel within a company. For example, overview modules on high-voltage safety can be offered to customer service and support personnel, with increasingly technical information offered to supervisors, managers, and technicians. Content can also be customized to reflect specific vehicle manufacturers or models.

Each in-person course is led by a highly trained automotive expert with extensive experience working with high-voltage systems and based on the latest standards in electric vehicle technology.
