Electric Vehicle Course

2 Day EV awareness with practical tactical exercises

Responders & Recovery agents faced with an AFV/EV involved in RTC and/or fire NEED training to ensure their own safety, public safety and safe & effective resolution of the incident in a dynamic and complex environment.

Most EV training offerings are from Motor Industry training providers, designed for Mechanics & Technicians working on EVs in workshops environments – not the complex and dynamic scenarios faced by Responders!

EV Fire Simulator enables repeatable Traction Battery fires with realistic vapour release and directional flaming

Our Electric Vehicles(EV) courses cover:

  • awareness of the increasing variety of AFVs/EVs amongst Responders and practitioners

  • the hazards associated with different fuel types when involved in RTC and/or fire

  • safe approach, information gathering and ERGs (Emergency Response Guides)

  • thermal events and containment/suppression tactics

  • extrication & trauma care considerations and options

  • ‘making safer’ using our IAIIM protocol, and handing over risk information, and 

  • Recovery, transport & storage and Investigation 

Courses can be tailored to suit Emergency Responders (Local Authority/Airport FRS, Police & Ambulance, Highways and Recovery), Salvage site staff and Insurance Assessors/agents.

Having been consulted on the creation of the new National Occupational Standards for EV Responders our courses are mapped against EV02a & EV02b and can be delivered as ‘Certificated’ or IMI Accredited (Professional Qualification Certificate)
