Randolph Center — The rising number of electric vehicles on the road increases the need for safety, service and sales personnel to understand the technology and how to handle it safely. As part of the Green Trainings program, Vermont Technical College is hosting free workshops at the Randolph campus on May 23-24 to address the training needs of these audiences.

The two-day workshop, entitled Hybrid and Electric Drive Vehicle Maintenance, is open to auto technicians, service personnel, and all of those involved in maintenance on these types of vehicles. Through hands-on training experience, participants will use proper materials and techniques for servicing and maintaining hybrid vehicles, including proper lifting/jacking techniques.

The Vermont Tech Green Trainings program is part of Vermont Tech’s Office of Continuing Education & Workforce Development. We are able to offer this training at no cost to participants due to funding provided by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Information about this training and others is available on the VT Tech Green Trainings Web site: www.greentrainings.vtc.edu
To register, please call 802-728-1677 or e-mail: mgirouard@vtc.edu
Contact the Green Trainings Manager at mroethlein@vtc.edu with questions.

The project is funded (in part, as applicable) by a grant awarded under the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration.
