E-mobility training

Electric vehicles are slowly but surely taking over the roads, and they do so with an unprecedented impact on everyone that comes into contact with them.

This creates a new need to provide special training on the unique requirements of safety in electromobility, primarily for manufacturers and developers of electric vehicles and their components, but also for companies that carry out installation work or conversions on such vehicles, as well as workshops. DEKRA offers these target groups training tailored to perfectly meet the requirements of the customers. In addition, DEKRA also offers sales training as well as training on charging technology.

The contents of our training courses are oriented towards the type of activity which the participants will be carrying out on high-voltage vehicles. One important distinction that is made is whether that person will be carrying out non-electronic, electronic or electro-technical work under voltage on the vehicle. The lowest level is web-based and gives the qualification “electrically instructed person.” Persons with this qualification are authorized, for example, to work on the autobody, change oil, or service the brakes. These works require an exact knowledge of where high-voltage components are located due to the possibility of working in very close proximity to these components.

Electrotechnical work on vehicles in a de-energized state, e.g. replacing high-voltage components, requires the qualification “HV systems specialist.” The one-day on-site training makes use of web-based methods. In this training course, participants mainly learn how to de-energize the vehicle and how to ascertain whether or not the vehicle is de-energized, as well as how to secure the system from being re-energized unintentionally. The third level goes even further and builds upon what was learned in the first two courses, giving the participants the opportunity to conduct troubleshooting and to replace components under voltage. This course requires special previous knowledge and proof of medical fitness.

There are even training courses suitable for companies that test, process, or recycle high-voltage batteries. DEKRA also offers individual training programs for companies working in the field of research and development of electric vehicles. The scope of such programs is heavily oriented towards the level of previous experience the participants have. They comprise between 20 to 100 learning units. The basis for all these training courses is, among others, the DGUV 200-005 information, qualification for work at vehicles with high-voltage systems.
