Modern hybrid and purely electrical drive systems in vehicles create completely new challenges for training and advanced training in automotive professions. The procedure for testing/inspecting and repairing these vehicles is clearly defined in DGUV 200-005 (BGI 8686). There are also local regulations that apply when conducting this kind of work. Work must only be conducted on vehicles with HV systems when these systems are de-energised. Special training is required in order to ensure that the systems are de-energised. The specialised training room for alternative drive systems and high-voltage systems is equipped to meet these specific requirements and allows learners to develop the skills required to work on these kinds of vehicles.
