Bosch introduces nationwide EV training tour

The EV Training Tour will travel across the country beginning in early July.

Bosch’s Mobility Aftermarket division has officially launched the Bosch EV Training Tour alongside its supplier, AVI. The EV Training Tour began March 21 in Fort Myers, FL, with a “Breakfast with Bosch” kickoff event and will travel across the country beginning in early July.  

“As a trusted industry resource, Bosch is committed to empowering shop owners and technicians with the tools and knowledge to successfully navigate the electric vehicle transition,” Daniel Angelo, director of technical services at Bosch, said. “We’re proud to offer an immersive experience that leverages diagnostic and repair techniques attendees will use when servicing electric vehicles. This course is designed for technicians with an intermediate skill level in EV repair – giving them more hands-on experience to expand their understanding and skill set.” 

The EV Training Tour will hold three one-day, eight-hour courses in different cities across the United States. Each course will have a maximum of 20 attendees. Bosch said a Bosch-certified AVI professional trainer will instruct the Bosch-created curriculum and feature EV repair-related topics including the fundamentals of an electric vehicle, electric motor concepts, power electronics, maintenance and troubleshooting topics and more.

In addition to learning relevant EV maintenance from industry experts in a classroom-like setting, Bosch said attendees will leverage training aids, built by AVI, to easily access and work with electric vehicle and hybrid vehicle systems in a hands-on environment. These training aids include:  

  • Cutaway Toyota Gen III Prius: Offers a view of a vehicle’s internal components to showcase how different systems, including the battery, motor and air conditioning, interact;
  • Electric vehicle training aid cart (EVA): Simulates diagnosing and repairing an EV battery and motor without exposure to a live high-voltage battery;
  • A/C cart: Replicates the air conditioning and cooling systems in electric vehicles and hybrids in a safe environment.
