Overview

Program Overview

The Electric Vehicle (EV) Technician training program is intended to address a global need for people who are skilled in diagnosing, servicing and repairing high voltage EVs and commercial charging stations.

Students in the EV Technician program receive both theoretical and laboratory instruction through a combination of multimedia learning resources and an electrical/electronics simulation software package (CircuitLogix Pro) to allow for the testing, validation, and understanding of electrical and electronic circuits that are found in a typical EV.

The program will also be highly beneficial to Automotive Service Technicians who have a strong background in internal combustion engine (ICE) powered vehicles, but who lack the knowledge and skills in power electronics and data communication systems to safely perform service-related work on EVs and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs). Additionally, this program is relevant to electricians who will be installing, servicing and maintaining residential and commercial EV charging stations.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: This online distance program is only available to study while remaining in your home country and does not qualify for study/work permit eligibility in Canada.

Full Description

The Electric Vehicle (EV) Technician certificate program is divided into 14 courses, or modules, each consisting of about 10 sections, or major topics. The program is delivered in an asynchronous “on demand” format, which allows you to start and finish modules at your own pace.

The average completion time is 32 weeks, but there are no pre-set, scheduled completion times, which allows you to complete the course material at a rate that you are comfortable with. Each module has an online final exam. Course material for the program is delivered and supported by a combination of online resources including real-time tutorial support. The interactive curriculum uses text, video, 2D and 3D animations, photos, audio clips and interactive electrical/electronic simulations.
