The CEET 100V course in the Electric Vehicle Technology and Service Program will provide Automotive Service Technicians with an entry point into the knowledge and skills required to safely diagnose, service, and repair high voltage electric vehicles.
The program is designed for Certified Automotive Technicians, building on experience with conventional vehicle systems, and developing the specialized skills necessary to service and maintain the ever-increasing numbers of electric vehicles on our roads.
This program intends to meet the current high demand for EV training in the dealership, independent, and fleet repair community and will be the first of it's kind on Vancouver Island, starting in the late fall of 2021. The program consists of 6 hours of interactive online learning and 30 hours of in class/shop theory and hands-on practical instruction.
As there is wide demand for this type of education, we anticipate offering a modified version of this course to individuals who may not be automotive technicians. If you are not an automotive technician and are interested in electric vehicle training, please fill out this quick form.
The course is set up in eight modules, the first three modules are to be completed online prior to the start of the start of the in-person class. Their will be some review of this content during the lab section.
- As the first module deals with safety and PPE this will be reviewed on the first day of in-person class.
- Modules four through eight have various practical aspects to them that include HV battery removal in both a hybrid and a full EV, Lithium Ion battery pack disassemble and test, testing of HV motors, DTC diagnosis on various HV vehicles, testing and bleeding HV cooling systems and identifying regenerative braking systems.
- There are a total of three quizzes, done during the on line portion, and a final 40 question test done on the last day in the classroom.
The course is designed to give graduates a broad understanding of EV maintenance including:
- Apply high voltage safety procedures
- Distinguish different categories of high voltage vehicles
- Service High Voltage Powertrain Systems
- Service high voltage battery charging systems
- Compare high voltage vehicle transmission type
- Service high voltage vehicle temperature management systems
- Distinguish the maintenance procedures for high voltage vehicles
- Associate causes for common symptoms found in current high voltage vehicles
Students are required to supply their own CSA approved footwear, coveralls/workwear, and safety glasses. High voltage safety PPE will be available for student use.
