July 2024 – Automotive Technicians for the EV Future

July 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Our July meeting will focus on what is being done to assure that we have technicians ready to service the EVs taking over the market.

EVs typically go thousands of miles without the need for any maintenance – no oil changes, tune-ups, timing belts, even brake pads. But when they do need service, EVs need a different skillset than traditional cars. It is a significant transition from mechanical to electrical and computer technology. Some say that EVs are frequently “totaled” after a collision because shops are afraid to repair them. Is this because there is a shortage of qualified technicians? Visit SDTechs.org to learn more about the effort to fill the gap.

How does the subject of EV repair impact you as an EV owner?

Come hear from Omar Sevilla and some of his colleagues about how education is evolving to meet future needs. Omar is an automotive instructor at both the high school and community college level. EV’s were the primary focus of the CHARGED UP 2024 conference held last May in San Diego which Omar helped host.

Join us as we meet again at the Automotive Museum and enjoy some pizza. Maybe you know someone that is a candidate for a career in EV technology – bring them along.
