The proverb 'A little knowledge is a dangerous thing' expresses the idea that a small amount of knowledge can mislead people into thinking that they are more expert than they are, which can lead to mistakes being made. When it comes to repairing EV/Hybrids, the era of being a parts changer, I'm told,  is nonexistent. We recorded live at Dorman with G Truglia and Pete Meier, 2 out of 4 trainers for a weekend of hands-on training.  Listen to their perspectives on EV/Hybrid repair and training and why critical thinking is more important than ever.

Pete Meier, Creative Director, Motor Age, and industry trainer. Bikers C.A.R.E Inc. Listen to Pete’s other episodes HERE Key Talking Points
  • Tips and tricks with EV/Hybrids- you must understand electric
  • Using a meter- where to put it, what scale to put it on and what the readings mean
  • You either fix it right, or you fix it wrong- there is no middle ground or a gray area
  • Information is key- batteries, computer systems, motors, etc
  • You have to have logic and critical thinking when working with high voltage
  • Changing a battery isn’t so simple anymore 
  • Commitment to training and education- reading publications, attending live hands-on  classes
  • Challenges- technicians do not receive support from the shop owner
  • Transferring information from the brain to your hands- no longer a parts changer to fix problems. Comprehensive understanding.  
  • How many shops are doing EV/Hybrid the right way?
  • 60 volts can stop your heart and kill you
  • “A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing.”
