Train the Trainer event for Automotive Electrification – Day 1


January 11 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm GMT

This is the 1 day remote (on-line) tutor-led component for the Train the Trainer course in Automotive Electrification – Safety and Quality

This is ‘Day 1’ of a series of ‘Train the Trainer’ courses in automotive electrification which will enable those attending to equip themselves with the skills and understanding to deliver the following units directly to their own learners:

  • Safety, Legislation and Standards – Automotive Hugh Voltage Batteries
  • Quality Checks
  • Quality Management

The course is delivered on-line by one of the tutors designing the training materials for the units. There will be approximately 1.5 hours delivery per unit with additional time for questions and answers etc.

This is a level 4 course.

ESP units at Level 4 have been designed to provide an understanding of emerging technologies and the deployment of these technologies in industrial/manufacturing contexts. The units have been designed to suit learners at Level 4, or those with higher level STEM qualifications seeking to upskill in emerging technologies. Those learners without a suitable STEM background at Level 3 would be advised to study the relevant Level 3 unit first.

Knowledge : Has practical, theoretical or technical knowledge and understanding of a subject or field of work to address problems that are well defined but complex and non-routine. Can analyse, interpret and evaluate relevant information and ideas. Is aware of the nature of approximate scope of the area of study or work. Has an informed awareness of different perspectives or approaches within the area of study or work.

Skills : Identify, adapt and use appropriate cognitive and practical skills to inform actions and address problems that are complex and non-routine while normally fairly well-defined. Review the effectiveness and appropriateness of methods, actions and results.

This ‘Day 1’ is the first of four days of Train the Trainer for Automotive Electrification and we encourage all those attending to complete the other three days. These are also available on Eventbrite and are run on the following days / location.

Day 2 – 12th of January (on-line event)

Day 3 & 4 – 17th and 18th of January – Face to Face event at GTG West Midlands

Day 3 & 4 – 19th and 20th of January – Face to Face event at New Durham College (please note that this is a repeat of the event on the 17th and 18th)

In order to ensure that you are suitable for the course, and to enable the tutor/ trainer to be made aware of your experience in Automotive Electrification you’ll be sent a short survey to complete once you have registered for this Train the Trainer event. Please complete this within two days of registering on these Train the Trainer courses, it can be accessed here

The Train the Trainer courses include an element of pre-reading which will you’ll be given access to on the week commencing 20th of December. There’s also a pre-reading self assessment test on the 5th of January 2022.

An outline of the three units covered through this Train the Trainer course can be found below:

Safety, Legislation and Standards – Automotive High Voltage Batteries

• With manufactures in full-flow of development / roll-out of ‘electrification’ and EVs, the industry is seeing a lot of variation around the way in which vehicle systems are being installed and utilised. Adopting ‘common’ safety and standards in line with the guidance from the HSE / BSI / ISO (Worldwide) framework, is key to standardising within the industry.

• Attendee’s on this course will gain knowledge and understanding around specific safety issues relating to batteries, particularly management of high voltage and current.

• By the end of the unit learners will be able to interpret design safety standards, regulation and working practices related to ‘electrified’ vehicles.

Carrying Out Quality Checks in Electric Vehicle Manufacture

• As technology develops within ‘electrified’ vehicles, the systems which govern the running of these vehicles become ever more sophisticated.

• In this module the attendee will gain a knowledge and understanding of how to carry out quality control and assurance checks on electric vehicle active safety systems.

• By the end of the unit attendee’s will be able to follow vehicle manufacturer’s safe operating procedures to carry out quality and compliance checks.

Quality Management and Testing in Electric Vehicle Manufacture

• Managing quality control throughout the manufacturing process is a rigorous task. In this unit the attendee will gain a knowledge and understanding of how to develop and implement quality and compliance methods and techniques and quality management systems for the production of electric vehicles.

• You will learn about internal compliance audits for the production, develop and implement relevant personnel training on how to conduct quality and compliance testing for the production.

• By the end of the unit the learner will know how to use the outputs from quality and compliance testing to recommend improvements to processes and determine common defects.
