Tesla 1

Course Description

This two-day, hands-on workshop assumes little to no experience diagnosing and repairing Tesla vehicles. As always with Earthling classes, class size is limited to a maximum of 4 students. We will have multiple Teslas to work on.


Many aspects of Tesla operation and service may be unfamiliar to most of us, and one outcome of this course is to give you the tools to be able to communicate knowledgeably and effectively with Tesla owners about their vehicles, regardless of model. Another feature of the course is a walk through Tesla maintenance, how to acquire service information, ordering parts, and necessary tooling.

Learning Objectives

Learning objectives include:

  • Creating a service account to access Tesla service information
  • How Tesla vehicles are similar and different from other EVs
