EV, hydrogen truck & bus training move

Sydney-based electric and hydrogen truck and bus importer Foton Mobility Distribution will partner with TAFE NSW, TAFE Queensland, South West TAFE (Victoria), Federation University, Deakin University (Victoria) TAS TAFE, TAFE SA, South Metropolitan TAFE WA, MTA NSW and MTAQ to develop training programs and accreditations to meet changing transport industry needs during the transport to low- and zero-emissions vehicles.

The partnership intends to create a pathway for already technically trained workers to maintain and upgrade their skills in the repair and maintenance of both battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles as well as offering entry-level skills training to attract workers into the transport industry of the future.

Another goal is to develop a nationally consistent and recognised curriculum catering specifically for the maintenance and operation of ‘new energy’ vehicles.
