Phase I: High-Voltage Safety Training (online)

The automotive industry is going electric. Don’t fall behind in automotive technology training. Prepare for the high-voltage vehicles of yesterday, today and the future with our three-phase training program. Learn about the laws, regulations, standards and equipment designed to protect you from potentially hazardous high-voltage components on hybrid and electric vehicles.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard 1910.132 requires that employers provide training to each employee who is required to use personal protective equipment (PPE). This class can help meet that requirement in the automotive field.
