This online and in-person high voltage safety training is designed for technicians who work in and around high voltage. In the online portion of the course, learners will complete 4-8 hours of virtual Level 1 content as pre-work to become a Certified Level 1 Electrically Aware Person before attending the in-person portion for Level 2.

In person at the Legacy EV Headquarters, learners will practice and demonstrate the skills necessary to create and verify an electrically safe work condition, including testing and using high voltage PPE, using electrical instruments to verify a HV circuit is de-energized, and safely navigating a high voltage work environment. The in-person portion will conclude with a Level 2 Assessment and Skills Demontration to become a Level 2 Certified High Voltage Vehicle Technician.
