TMD Friction team pass electric and hybrid training

TMD Friction’s UK technical team has passed the IMI level three award in electric and hybrid vehicle system repair and replacement, as the company continues to look ahead and make key investments for the future that will aid your customers.

The training reflects TMD’s commitment to ensuring its team has the confidence to support its customers and share the required expertise needed in an evolving marketplace.

Stuart Incledon (top-left), technical sales representative, and James Harper (top-right), technical field support, at TMD Friction undertook 12 hours of online technical training and one full day in an assessment training centre. They gained the knowledge to work safely when carrying out repair activities on electric and hybrid vehicle high voltage systems, while also acquiring a thorough understanding of regenerative braking.

The duo also learnt the skills and expertise required to work safely around a vehicle that may have had damage to its high energy or electrical system via e-learning initiatives.

The content of the qualification contains two mandatory units: EV2.2 and EV3.

  • EV2.2 covers all of the skills and knowledge from the IMI level two award in electric and hybrid vehicles routine maintenance activities
  • EV3 covers the ability to work safely on an electric and hybrid vehicle; using information to carry out the task; carrying out repairs on high energy electrical systems; and recording information and making suitable recommendations

This achievement means that TMD Friction’s UK technical training team is now fully qualified to carry out work on electric and hybrid vehicles.

Scott Irwin MIMI, head of technical training at TMD Friction, said: “Having a fully trained team at TMD Friction offers our customers a unique and full service offering, to help them and their customers learn more about braking, as well as helping if any issues arise in the field.

“We recognise the value of continued CPD training at TMD, and we pride ourselves on supporting our employees with their ongoing learning and development, as automotive technology continues to evolve. It’s important that, as an industry, we invest in the required training and resources to futureproof our team and businesses so that we can continue to repair and maintain the growing vehicle parc.

“I’d like to offer my congratulations to both Stuart and James on passing the course with flying colours and would also like to thank Ben Stockton at OVA for the great training the team had from him and the team.”
