Vehicles that are to a greater extent electric and digitized make higher demands on the mechanics.
Therefore helps Traditions new training center for the mobility industry those with keeping up with the market.
Kristian Aagesen and his partner own Farsø Autoteknik. Like other mechanics, they also experience in these times that technology is changing towards the green and sustainable.
– This industry is constantly moving forward, and it is important that we are part of that movement. Now we are a smaller workshop a little out in the country, but here our customers are also starting to get electric cars – they are getting a bigger and bigger part of the market, so of course we have to keep up with that, says Kristian.
The same conclusion can also be found in a recently published analysis made for the Metal Industry’s Education Committee. It is summarized here that mechanics who are being trained now are well prepared for the mobility industry of the future.
But at the same time, the analysis also points out that continuing education is important. Because then those experienced in the industry can be ready for a future where, for example, there will be a greater focus on reusability and digitalisation.
This is precisely why Kristian has taken a course at Tradium’s continuing education center for the mobility industry. Here he follows several courses offered by Tradium together with CELF within electrical and hybrid engineering. Here there is, among other things, a great focus on safety.
– On the courses, we have learned a lot about the safety aspect. It is really important that we take all the right safety measures and minimize mistakes – because it is dangerous to work with electricity, says Kristian.
He has also worked with troubleshooting across models. Something that is important as the owner of a small mechanic company – even though in everyday life they do not yet come across many faults with the electric cars.
– We haven’t had the big challenges with this type of car yet, but I think they may come as more and more electric cars become available. That’s why I’m on a course here, where we learn to troubleshoot all brands, says Kristian.
Focus on the practical
On the courses, there has been an alternation between theory and practice, something which the course building itself is also designed according to. Here, the theory rooms are naturally integrated with the workshop, and it is easy to try out theories in practice.
– I haven’t tried changing the battery pack yet, but we have learned more about many of the advanced components that are in the electric and hybrid cars, says Kristian, among other things. He is very happy with the practical aspect of the training, as this is precisely what many in the industry learn the most from.
– The teachers are very good at learning from them. They make sure that we try the theory with our own hands and that is important, because there are people who would rather have their hands in the new technology. We cannot be content with being in the theory room, concludes Kristian.
