This is a 9 Day class held in Worcester, MA. After teaching hybrid technology in classrooms for years, I kept hearing the same request “I want an extensive hands-on class”. OK! It is here. Up Your Voltage! Classes have been held since June 2006. Everyone is better than the last as ACDC learns more and adds more value.
“Up Your Voltage” started with 3 ACDC HEVs in 2006, a 2000 Honda Insight, a 2003 Civic Hybrid, a 2001 Prius, and a 2004 Toyota Prius. Then a 2005 Ford Escape HEV was added. Next a 2007 Camry HEV, then a 2007 Highlander AWD HEV. A 2010 Prius (3rd gen) found a home and later a Honda Civic 2006 HEV (second gen) and a 2010 Honda Insight II. In 2011, a Chevy Volt and soon after a 2011 Nissan Leaf. Next was a 2013 VW Jetta HEV and a 3-year lease of a Chevy Bolt EV (It was turned back in). Add in a 2019 Kia Niro EV and you have almost every system needed to study EMV technology. In July of 2022, we added Tesla Training with the addition of a Tesla 2020 Model 3 AWD long-range, and a Ford C-Max Hybrid (same driveline as the Fusion HEV) in January of 2023. As ACDC is gearing up for the 2-wheeled market, a 2020 Zero EV motorcycle was added as well. A 2014 Vectrix EV 40 mph scooter joined the fleet a few years back. That is 17 different makes and models.
All of the ACDC fleets of cars will be here. Get yourself to Massachusetts and spend two weeks studying, driving, testing, scanning, scoping, servicing, and taking these EMVs apart. All I ask is that they run when you leave. ACDC has lots of parts to work with, scan tools, and scopes. The class is based on today’s technology and teaching methods. What you are missing in your training will be answered.
What happens on the weekend off in Worcester. If you want to return home (assuming you live nearby, you can. The weekend hotel is included in the fee, so you can stay there. Borrow an ACDC and see New England (have your spouse fly into Worcester for the weekend. Take the train to Boston and learn the history of our founding Fathers and Mothers. Lots to do here. Everything is a short drive away.
