How To Avoid Accidents While Using Hv-Systems With Our High-Voltage Training.

Staying in the fast lane means getting yourself ready today for the electric mobility of tomorrow! Here you can find out why a high-voltage training course is indispensable and why the topics covered are so important for the automotive industry.

The future of mobility is shaped by the great trends of electromobility, automation and digitization. The point is that electric mobility and e-vehicles are not just the future. They’re our present. They’re what we’re already working on today. We’re already in the middle of it! As use of electric mobility increases in the automotive industry, the growing prevalence of electric vehicles is presenting us all with new challenges. Mainly because innovative electric cars are powered by very high-voltage-power and this makes special protective measures necessary. The following topics are easily mastered once you’ve completed the high-voltage-training.

But what exactly can high-voltage training do for you? From the range problematic, different charging concepts, to the safe handling of the high-voltage system in electrically powered vehicles, there are of course many topics you should be familiar with from this point on. But the voltages used in electric vehicles are so high that you can lethally injure yourself through improper handling. After all, “high-voltage vehicles”, i.e. vehicles with voltages of more than 30V AC or 60V DC, are no longer permitted to be handled like conventional vehicles with a 12-volt electrical system. These include hybrid vehicles, vehicles with fuel cells (hydrogen) and vehicles that are only operated with a high-voltage battery. In the VadoTech high-voltage training, you’ll learn how to interrupt the power supply in electric vehicles safely, how to avoid any accidents of this type and how to safely and properly handle potential dangers. In our high-voltage training, you’ll learn all about the technical and organizational requirements to ensure the protection of all persons in the vicinity of such vehicles. We also address the particular dangers of electric current, such as the deadly danger of electric shock and the electric arc. The high-voltage training increases your aptitude and qualification for the respective activities in order to assess the electrical work to be done, to recognize possible hazards and to derive suitable protective measures. Qualification for working on vehicles with high-voltage systems and their components is represented in our high-voltage training in various stages and is determined according to the risk, depending on the work to be carried out.
