Q. Why is ACDC offering this? I thought you were a Hybrid / EV training company.
A. Hybrids have been sold worldwide since 1999. The Toyota Prius has been in Japan since 1997. 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. Train on your schedule, 10 minutes at a time if needed, to get the education you 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. Kena, your contact, 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 ACDC interact with the students?
A. Via Email mostly. Once you completed a module, ACDC 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, including gasoline, diesel, and all of your ASE certification tests. ACDC expects that most of our customers will be studying electricity and electrical systems, plus Hybrid and EVs, but it is up to you.
Cars are not getting any easier to fix
Education is the Key
