MEYLE has announced it will be offering a range of digital training courses free of charge, under the name MEYLE Academy.
MEYLE has offered an e-learning course on high-voltage vehicles for German-speaking countries since this year, with certification in accordance with German DGUV regulations. This September, MEYLE’s digital trade fair “MEYLE Exhibition Hamburg 2021” emphasised the importance of this particular e-learning course and revealed its most recent format extension in English to also ensure safe handling of high-voltage vehicles in English-speaking countries.
Among others, mechanics in the automotive industry all over the world, are increasingly faced with the task of coming into contact with electric drives and high-voltage systems.
MEYLE’s Senior Technical Trainer, Patrick Stüdemann, explained: “In order to keep up with the rising demand for electrified vehicles, expanding the expertise in the safe handling of high-voltage vehicles will make automotive workshops more competitive.”
The English-speaking participants of this course will receive a certificate in English after successful participation and passing of the final exam. This certificate is based on the German DGUV regulations. In German workshops, this certificate is mandatory to work on high-voltage vehicles. The requirements may vary by country and have to be checked on an individual basis.
Patrick continued: “The course content is not only highly relevant for all workshops in Germany but also across the globe, since the training covers all essential aspects, when dealing with a high-voltage vehicle. That is why we felt the need to develop an English version being accessible for everyone.”
Participants are familiarised with the relevant health and safety aspects and the content focuses on the differences between the various drive topologies, legal matters as well as hazards and everything to do with first aid in order to optimally prepare participants for customer requirements.
Patrick concluded: “With this new offer, MEYLE is using the latest technologies offering customers, no matter where they are located, innovative and practical solutions that make everyday work easier.”
Regardless of the time zone, MEYLE customers can access the training course at any time and from anywhere.
