VARTA Partner Portal expands hybrid and EV e-learning

The VARTA team has announced that a new suite of battery e-learning is now live in the VARTA Partner Portal, which will “complement the company’s more traditional face-to-face-training”.

The various e-learning courses complement VARTA’s digital portfolio, following its YouTube channel’s educational playlists, technical articles, its Battery Finder, and other social media platforms.

Knowledge creates success

VARTA reported its goal is to always provide the best user experience during its training – both online and offline.

Ulrich Germann, training and technical support manager at the VARTA Training Academy, said: “Our e-learning offerings are aimed at everyone who deals with batteries in their daily business.”

On its impact on you specifically, VARTA UK National Sales Manager, Jeremy Tollman, said: “We are really pleased to be able to offer the VARTA Partner Portal to the motor factors across the UK free of charge. It’s a great asset to support battery sales and know-how.

“Factor staff can take advantage of the Battery Finder, which selects the correct battery/technology for each vehicle, as well as upgrade their knowledge with the e-learning modules. It’s a one-stop-shop for all things batteries.”

Keeping up with modern technology

The first technology advancements around the battery came with the introduction of start/stop systems. Fuel-saving functions now go far beyond simply switching off the engine at traffic lights; many standard features are not even noticeable by the driver.

For technicians to be able to repair these complex systems in the future, VARTA reported it will continually update the training modules to ensure they are prepared. In addition to general topics, such as warehousing and storage, or the VARTA brand and USPs, there is also more in-depth technical material on the likes of vibration resistance or deep cycling capabilities.

And the next technological leap is already underway, according to VARTA, with the role of the traditional 12V battery, which is more important than ever for hybrid and pure EVs. Additionally, with the latest developments in EFB and AGM batteries for HGVs, the technological landscape has become as complex as that of passenger cars, claimed VARTA, so well-educated colleagues become more and more important for a successful business.

Expanding the range

After its launch, a new series on the topic of drivetrain electrification and the role of the 12V battery in EVs is ready for learners in the portal. The new modules focus on differing types of vehicle technology available in the market, and the role of the 12V battery for each of these.

VARTA e-learning courses are currently available within the VARTA Partner Portal. Registered users get access to a complete offering of digital trainings on basic battery knowledge, advanced passenger cars, including modules on hybrids and EVs, and HGVs.
