Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Electude / ACDC training


Q. Why is ACDC offering this?  I thought you were a Hybrid / EV training company.

A. Hybrids have been in America since 1999, over 5 million sold in the USA, plus 1 million plug-ins. Many technicians never spent the years it takes to get a Bachelor’s Degree in Automotive Science and Technology, but today’s hybrid and electric cars require that level of education. Many ACDC students (including auto techs) have struggled to keep up. Family time, outside interests and other demands have kept them from finishing an advanced degree. This program will work for them as it is on their schedule, 10 minutes at a time if needed, to get the education they need to stay in this ever evolving field.

Q. What if I know little about an iPad or a computer?

A. You need to be reasonable computer skills or this type of training will not work. It is OK to ask for help at work or church, from friends and family if your computer skills are low. We all want you to succeed.

Q. Are you offering hybrid and EV training with Electude?

A.  ACDC has a signed contract with Electude. Craig helped (and still does) to help improve their Hybrid / Plug-in and Electric Car training that they offer. The EV Electude / ACDC training is available now as an additional product.

Q. Will I get a College Degree after these classes?

A.  Not from ACDC or Electude. We value education highly and both ACDC and Electude strongly support higher education. You will receive (if requested) a certificate from ACDC yearly at no fee to you.

Q. How many training modules can I complete in one month? 

A. That really depends on you. A simple module on DVOMs may take only 20 or 30 minutes if you are experienced with meters. Other modules could slow you down and take hours.  Hybrid and EV modules take longer to get through.

Q. Do I select my own classes to study?

A. No. Jag, your instructor, will send you one class at a time. Craig Van Batenburg and other ACDC staff will be organizing and grouping the 600 plus modules into classes. These will vary from beginner to advanced, but ACDC recommends that most of our students start off with some basic classes.

Q. How does Craig interact with the students?

A. Via Email mostly. Craig Van Batenburg will offer group lessons (included in the fee) for learning some basic knowledge about the Electude program. Once you have completed a module, Craig will send you your next assignment.

Q. What parts of the car can I study?

A. Any system that you need to learn more about. ACDC expects that most of our customers will be studying electricity and electrical systems, plus Hybrid and EVs, but it is up to you.

Q. What if I just can’t do it?

A. ACDC has been working with Electude since 2014 getting this ready for the aftermarket. ACDC feels that if you can fix a car, this will be easy. Just don’t quit on yourself. The classes are purchased in 3 month to one year increments. Start with a 3 month subcription.

Cars are not getting any easier to fix

 Education is the Key
