Cambrian launches Battery Electric Vehicle Training Program

October 14, 2021
Cambrian College has announced that it is launching a new program that will train mining mechanics with the skills needed to work on electric vehicles. The Battery Electric Vehicle Training Program will provide students with equipment and training to upgrade their skills so they can fill the skills gap as diesel vehicles are phased out in favour of electric ones. The course takes eight days to complete and will be available for heavy equipment mechanics working in the industry. Cambrian students will have access to training on the equipment in an underground test mine through a partnership with MacLean Engineering. CBC (ON)
