Total Lockout are pleased to offer the following training programmes for Electric and Hybrid vehicles worldwide!

The growing popularity of electric and hybrid cars; signifies the urgent need for professionals within the automotive industry to receive specific training before carrying out maintenance, servicing or repair work. There are many risks associated with high voltage electrical systems, you can read more about them here.

The training courses are aimed at vehicle technicians, automotive recyclers, auto body repairers, roadside recovery agents and emergency first responders.

There are safety critical procedures that must be adhered to when handling electric and hybrid vehicles. Attending a training course allows professionals to develop a wider skill set, whilst gaining complete awareness of how to identify hazards and recognize what each type of component does.

This will also help to quickly differentiate electric and hybrid vehicles from fuel operated vehicles. We work with a select number of approved third-party training providers, able to offer courses for all abilities, business types and locations.
