Below are the vehicles worked on in the class:
Hybrids/EVs: Toyota – Lexus - Ford - Mazda - Mercury - Honda - Nissan - GM - Saturn - BMW - Mercedes - VW - Porsche - Hyundai - Tesla - Mistubishi - Kia
With more hybrids hitting the road, and most OEM’s in the game or planning new hybrids and Electric Vehicles (EV), when are you going to get ready? Taking this 8 hour class will get you started on the EV/HYBRID HIGHWAY!
This class will answer your questions, from jump starting a hybrid to diagnosing a drivability issue. Craig Van Batenburg, a Master Hybrid Technician, loves these cars, owns nine of them (including a VOLT) and has been training techs since May of 2000 when he added hybrid technology to his Honda/Acura class. Now hybrid training is a full time job, and his Honda Insight is 12 years old. Craig’s classes sell out wherever he goes.

In eight hours you will understand what a hybrid is; learn about the high voltage systems, regenerative braking, and get real answers. Some of these hybrids run at 650 volts, so safety is a must!
