Delphi Technologies has further enhanced the electrified vehicle content on its online training platform, with the addition of a virtual insight into the workings of a high voltage battery.
Entitled ‘Inside a HV battery’ the short video has been designed to provide viewers with an understanding of the principles and components of the high voltage battery. Visually, it includes a 3D image of a battery that Delphi Technologies created by using a LiDAR scanner to perform a 360-degree scan of a sample high voltage battery at its Warwick-based Training Centre.
The video is designed to complement existing H/EV tutorials on the Delphi Technologies Academy learning platform. This is the company’s online training resource which users can access 24/7 and is designed to help overcome the financial and time challenges that independent garages can face when pursuing practical, off-site training.
The HV battery introduction joins electrified vehicle training materials that span instruction on how to lift an EV as well as what PPE to wear, OE systems and online modules that support the completion of popular IMI courses.
Phil Mitchell, Technical Services Manager at Delphi Technologies Aftermarket, said: “We recognised the increasingly urgent need for independent garages to have access to electric vehicle training a long time ago. The Delphi Technologies Academy and the introduction of online tutorials, such as the HV battery video, are part of our solution to help address the huge shortage in non-franchised garage personnel having the skills to work on electrified vehicles.
“The virtual content of the Delphi Technologies Academy perfectly complements our practical EV training, allowing us to offer a sought-after ‘blended learning approach’, but also enables users to significantly expand their knowledge of EVs in general. With the technology being so fresh, the content is suitable for those who are just starting out on their career right through to those who have spent 30 years in the industry.”
