This College book (and the program that goes with it) is currently in Beta testing. It started in late 2019 and ongoing. We are in the final stages. The 5 Colleges and their 10 professors are having a big impact on the final outcome.

If you want to teach advanced Hybrid, Electric and Fuel Cell technology (what we call EMV technology) you need a consistent source of information. At many colleges the EMV classes were a combination of whatever hybrids or plug-ins you had, a text book that is old or does not agree with what you know to be true, and some equipment was obsolete. ACDC has visited and taught in colleges all over the globe. Expensive training aids sit in the corner, as no one currently on staff is trained to teach with it. In most cases the funding you really need is not available, as Administration does not have a complete picture of what is required. Automotive teachers we visit with have explained their situations to us and we went looking for a solution.

By selling a subscription for EMV training, you will have everything you need in an organized and logical program. We suggest staying in the ACDC program for the next 10 years as the technology keeps changing.
