Learn the ins and outs of electric vehicles through the lens of a gas-to-electric car conversion at Legacy EV's EV Fundamentals Certification Bootcamp!
Learners will wire, program, commission, tune, and practice fault finding in various EV systems using fully functional EV training benches. High Voltage Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is demonstrated and used in this class during hands-on exercises.
Included in the Boot Camp is access to LegacyEV's virtual Certified Technician Program to become certified by Legacy EV in performing gas-to-electric vehicle conversions.
