Australia’s heavy vehicle industry is improving electric vehicle repair training

The Heavy Vehicle Industry of Australia (HVIA) is seeking collaboration from its members to improve workforce training and development in the electric vehicle (EV) repair sector. difficult. As the industry continues to emphasize sustainability and reducing net-zero emissions, it is critical that workers gain knowledge and experience in electric vehicle repair and maintenance.

In collaboration with Swinburne University, HVIA will undertake a review of the content covered in electric vehicle engineering courses that currently offer electric vehicle and electric vehicle repair training. The aim of this project is to evaluate the material covered in specific units at the university, such as: B. Disconnecting and resetting battery electric vehicles; diagnosing and repairing high-voltage traction motors in battery electric vehicles; diagnosing and repairing system instruments and safety devices. Safety in battery-electric vehicles as well as testing, charging, and replacing batteries in jump-start vehicles

To enhance these training resources, Swinburne University has previously received government funding through a grant under the New Energy Training Pathways initiative. The federal government has committed $95.6 million over nine years to support 10,000 new energy apprenticeships and workforce upskilling in the industry. In addition, the Victorian Government has invested $172 million in 30 priority TAFE courses, including the New Energy Technology Systems project.

This review, carried out by HVIA, is part of its Industrial Transition to Electric Mobility (LITE) project. As an industry association, HVIA wants to play a leading role in the introduction of zero-emission heavy-duty vehicles.
