On February 15th, Vermont Technical College is hosting a free workshop for Auto Body Technicians on Hybrid Vehicle Repair & Service. The event will take place all day, 8am-5pm, on Vermont Tech’s main campus in Randolph Center.

Vermont Tech professor, Robert Palmer, leads the workshop on understanding how to evaluate and repair damaged components in the high voltage and propulsion systems, two increasingly critical skills for technicians in an automotive shop.

The one-day training includes:
– A brief overview of electric drive vehicle identification, design, and operation.
– A hands-on laboratory portion to cover component identification, location, service, repair, removal, and reinstallation.
– Diagnostic testing for determining when components need to be serviced or replaced.

This workshop is one of many hosted by the Vermont Tech Green Trainings program, part of VT Tech’s Office of Continuing Education & Workforce Development. Green Trainings hosts regular workshops to teach the skills needed to increase expertise and expand job opportunities. Funding is provided, in part, by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.
