Hybrid/EV 1

Course Description

This three-day, hands-on workshop delves deep into hybrid and EV powertrain component operation, the function of those components as a system, and the interpretation of diagnostic data that will help you diagnose issues. For hybrids, we will focus on the Toyota hybrid system; for EVs, the focus is on Tesla vehicles.


Students will become familiar with the basics of hybrid and EV powertrains — component functions, system operation and co-operation, proper maintenance — and build a body of knowledge that will prepare them to learn how to successfully diagnose and repair hybrid and electric vehicles.
