EV & hybrid expert Craig Van Batenburg to train at Wire & Gas 2020

Craig Van Batenburg

World renowned hybrid and EV repair expert Craig Van Batenburg from the United States is confirmed to train at Wire & Gas 2020 on his first-ever visit to Australia.

A workshop owner turned training provider through his Automotive Career Development Center (ACDC) in Worcester, Massachusetts, Craig’s peerless knowledge of vehicle electrification stems from his first hybrid car purchase in 1999.

He began delivering hybrid vehicle training resources in 2000 before expanding into electric vehicle training resources from 2008.

The automotive industry is witnessing a rapid electrification of everything from passenger cars to heavy vehicles and earthmoving equipment.

It is also becoming clear that as vehicle electrification becomes increasingly mainstream, the disciplines of air-conditioning, electrical and thermal are converging.

As such, Wire & Gas 2020 will place a heavy focus on the changes and opportunities facing the automotive repair industry as electrification gathers momentum. This topic is expected to radically broaden the event’s appeal.

Wire & Gas 2020 will take place from July 31 to August 2 next year at Marriott Surfers Paradise and SuperCool Group headquarters in Ormeau, on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

A world-class roster of speakers and trainers is planned for Wire & Gas 2020, who will be announced as confirmation is obtained.
