Course Information for Students

Available to those already working and qualified as a Light Vehicle (Car)Technician, this VRQ is for those responsible for maintaining hybrid vehicles and the hybrid system itself. It contains the knowledge and skills required to work safely in and around the vehicle’s hybrid system.

You must already be qualified as a Light Vehicle (Car) Technician/Mechanic and have at least three years’ experience since completing an apprenticeship.

This course includes the following units:

•Electric/Hybrid vehicle system components and operations

•Hazards surrounding Electric/Hybrid vehicles

•How to reduce the risk to yourself and others when working on Electric/Hybrid Vehicles

•Safely preparing the vehicle when carrying out routine maintenance (NOT high voltage components or systems)

This course will be delivered on-site.

You will need stationery and Personal Protective Equipment, including safety boots and overalls.

The theory element of this programme will be delivered during the initial weeks of the course leading to the online exam.

Your practical assessment will take place on completion of the online exam. You will be issued with an individual appointment time for this. You do not need to attend during these later weeks other than for your assessment appointment.

Underpinning knowledge will be assessed via online external tests for all units.  Practical activities are assessed in our centre using externally set criteria.

Successful completion of this Level 2 programme can lead to the more advanced Level 3 programme.
