Toronto, Ontario – Toronto’s Centennial College, in collaboration with the Canadian Automotive Repair and Service Council (CARS), is offering a new training course on hybrid vehicle technology, the first of its kind to be offered in Canada.

The 16-hour training course is designed to give participants an understanding of hybrid electric technology, including critical safety issues and how to perform routine maintenance and service on current production hybrid component systems, such as those from General Motors, Toyota and Honda. The part-time course is intended for practicing automotive technicians who want to offer aftermarket service, and is an invaluable aid to service advisors, auto body repairers or towtruck operators who may be first at a crash scene involving a hybrid.

Hybrid vehicle owners and enthusiasts can also enroll, although the level of technical information may be high for many laypersons.

The course begins September 17 at the Ashtonbee Campus in Scarborough (Toronto), Ontario, and is scheduled for Wednesday evenings in four-hour blocks over four weeks. A second class begins on October 22. For more information, visit Centennial College.
