St Clair launches EV technician diploma program


St Clair College has announced that it is launching Ontario’s first EV technician diploma program. The program covers EV powertrains, energy storage systems, and the computerized systems used in electrical vehicles. “We’re very excited about it, and I think it’s really going to help the economy with what’s coming to Windsor,” said Lido Zuccato, Dean of the schools of Engineering Technologies, Apprenticeship and Skilled Trades at St Clair. Zuccato added that the college consulted with the automotive industry throughout the program’s development and heard that this type of program is in high demand. Students who enrol in the two-year diploma program will receive a certificate in Electrical Vehicle Fundamentals after their first year, at which point they can choose to enter an apprenticeship.
