The program of study will include high voltage safety, high voltage batteries, charging, inverter/converter operation, cooling systems, transmission, engines, and basic fuel cell technologies.

The Hybrid and Electric Vehicle program will immerse the student in the latest theory, demonstration, and hands on practice of this new technology. Students will use tools and diagnostic equipment from industry to understand, diagnose, and repair hybrid and electric vehicles in a professional atmosphere.
