The Battery Electric Vehicle Course - High Voltage Electrical Safety is a comprehensive program designed to equip participants with the essential knowledge required for ensuring the safe operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of high-voltage electrical systems in battery electric vehicles. The course focuses on the details of battery electric vehicles, emphasizing safety measures to mitigate potential risks and ensure a secure working environment.


Course Overview:

The curriculum covers a wide array of topics, including low/high voltage maintenance, grounding, battery maintenance, and troubleshooting, among others. Participants will gain in-depth insights into the principles of electrical safety, emphasizing the significance of adhering to established best practices, standards, and regulatory frameworks in Canada, such as the CSA Z-462, Canadian Electrical Code, and the OH&S Regulations.


Emphasis on Safety:

The course focuses on crucial factors such as the proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE), risk assessments, and the development of safety-conscious work practices. Through extensive discussions participants will learn how to effectively handle electrical hazards, mitigate risks associated with electrical shock and arc flash, and maintain safe working distances from potential energy sources.


Training and Assessments:

With a strong emphasis on practical application and real-world simulations, allowing participants to validate their theoretical knowledge in a controlled environment. The program culminates with assessments to evaluate participants' understanding of the course material and their ability to implement safe practices in various high-voltage electrical scenarios.


Preparation for Industry Standards:

Participants will be prepared to meet industry standards, including those outlined in the CSA Z-462, enabling them to confidently apply their expertise in the maintenance and operation of battery electric vehicles. The goal is to ensure personal and co-worker safety while working with high-voltage electrical systems in the rapidly evolving landscape of battery electric vehicles.


The course is structured to include interactive sessions. Participants will have access to course manuals and interactive discussions to enhance their learning experience.

Join us to gain the critical knowledge needed to navigate the complexities of battery electric vehicles and ensure the highest standards of safety in High Voltage electrical operations.
