MEYLE Academy: new high-voltage e-learning course available in English

Date: Friday 15 October 2021

Under the name MEYLE Academy, the German manufacturer MEYLE is offering a wide range of (digital) training courses with highly relevant content free of charge. As one of the first on the market, MEYLE offers an innovative e-learning course on high-voltage vehicles for German-speaking countries since this year, with certification in accordance with German DGUV regulations. This September, MEYLE’s digital trade fair “MEYLE Exhibition Hamburg 2021” emphasized the importance of this particular new e-learning course and revealed its most recent format extension in English to also ensure safe handling of high-voltage vehicles in English-speaking countries.

Among others, mechanics in the automotive industry all over the world, are currently faced with the task of coming into contact with electric drives and high-voltage systems with increased probability. MEYLE’s senior technical trainer Patrick Stüdemann is convinced that the new e-learning for high-voltage vehicles will offer automotive workshops all over the world added value: "In order to keep up with the rising demand for electrified vehicles, expanding the expertise in the safe handling of high-voltage vehicles will make automotive workshops more competitive."

The English-speaking participants of this course will receive a certificate in English after successful participation and passing of the final exam. This certificate is based on the German DGUV regulations. In German workshops this certificate is mandatory to work on high-voltage vehicles. The requirements may vary by country and have to be checked on an individual basis.

MEYLE’s senior technical trainer stresses the relevance of the course for the international market:

“The course content is not only highly relevant for all workshops in Germany but also across the globe, since the training covers all essential aspects, when dealing with a high-voltage vehicle. That is why we felt the need to develop an English version being accessible for everyone.”

All participants of the offered e-learning training are familiarized with the relevant safety and health aspects. In addition to this, the focus is on content such as differences between the various drive topologies, legal matters as well as hazards and everything to do with first aid in order to optimally prepare participants for customer requirements.

"With this new offer, MEYLE is using the latest technologies offering customers, no matter where they are located, innovative and practical solutions that make everyday work easier," adds Patrick Stüdemann.

Regardless of the time zone, MEYLE customers can access the training course at any time and from anywhere. For more information on the high-voltage e-learning training, MEYLE customers are advised to contact their account manager or to visit the following website:
