Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Electude / ACDC training

FAQ

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

A. Hybrids have been in America since 1999, over 3 million sold in the USA. 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. ACDC will hold free webinars to help you get over the curve of the computer part so that the automotive training comes easily. Also, 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. Why aren’t you offering hybrid and EV training with Electude?

A. The four hybrid modules that Electude has developed are very basic and ACDCs Web training we have on our web site is more advanced. ACDC has a signed contract with Electude and Craig made two trips to the Netherlands (Holland) in 2014 to help improve their Hybrid / Plug-in and Electric Car training that they offer. You will see in the future more on hybrids and EVs from Electude/ ACDC.  When Hybrid and EV Electude / ACDC training is available it will be an additional product and will have an added cost. It will come out in 2015.

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.

Q. Do I select my own classes to study?

A. No. Craig, 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.

Q. What if I just can’t do it?

A. ACDC has been working with Electude for most of 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.

Cars are not getting any easier to fix
