Recommended Concurrent Training: High Voltage Vehicle Safety Systems


High Voltage Safety & PPE is a necessary and important course to complete when planning to diagnose or repair hybrid or electric vehicles.  This course will provide information on how to test High Voltage gloves, when and where to send high voltage gloves for periodic testing, and how to safely use the proper test equipment for measuring High Voltage components in live and disabled High Voltage systems.  Technical information within this course will apply to any electrified vehicle.


Course Objectives

By participating in this On Demand Course, you will be able to:

  • Select High Voltage Electrical Safety gloves
  • Follow guidelines in how to properly maintain High Voltage Electrical Safety gloves
  • Field test High Voltage Safety gloves before each use
  • Properly interface a Differential Oscilloscope probe when measuring voltage in High Voltage systems
  • Apply correct Category (CAT) ratings when using or purchasing tools or equipment
  • Use an Insulation Resistance tester to test and identify components for any insulation failures

At the conclusion of this course, you will know how to care for and test High Voltage gloves which, test equipment to purchase and how to use it, and how to safely make measurements on a High Voltage system.


Is this online training course for you?

High Voltage Safety is a primary concern when any Technician is developing, verifying, or validating a vehicle electrification system.  This course will provide essential information, and the associated electrical requirements of high voltage in electrical systems and tools associated with measuring high voltage system voltage and current.  The associated Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) necessary for any Technician interfacing with high voltage systems is also an integral segment of this course
