by Autocar Pro News Desk , 21 Feb 2022


Pune-based Autobot Academy, an electric vehicle education start-up has launched its national program, an advanced professional course in EV Servicing and Maintenance.

The course aims to develop lead level service, maintenance engineers, and technicians to support the EV industry. The company says it is estimated that the country will have an EV industry worth Rs 500 billion by 2025, of which electric two-wheelers alone would make up for Rs 100 billion. This surge will also be a massive employment opportunity for trained, professionally skilled EV service and maintenance engineers and technicians.

Ashwini Tiwary, co-founder and CEO, Autobot India said, “With a commitment to environmental sustainability, the government has envisaged making India an #EVnation by 2030. As part of the learning program, Autobot Academy will also offer support and mentoring to entrepreneurs and existing garages’ owners for setting up or upgrading their facilities as service centres for the new technology market. We will specifically target start-ups, OEMs, fleet operators, aggregators, last-mile-delivery providers, and commute as well as logistics companies with the Autobot EV talent pool. The aim is to develop 1,000 certified EV service, and maintenance engineers and technicians for the domestic market by end-2023.”

The EV Servicing and Maintenance course will provide a professional certification course for the electric 2-wheeler segment. The three-month course will be a blended (online + offline) learning opportunity with Autobot Level 2 certification.

Rajeev Sharma, head of Learning and Development, Autobot Academy said, “Growth expansion and market reach of Indian automotive industry of two-wheeler segment are largely dependent on after-sales support. While e-two-wheelers are already on the road, the skilled manpower to cater to the immediate needs of electric two-wheeler customers is still not available as needed. To address this urgent requirement of skilled manpower exclusively for the industry, we have designed this customised course of Service and Maintenance to address customers' emerging needs but also to generate employment for aspiring candidates for EV industry.”

To become an Autobot certified Level 2 EV Service and Maintenance Engineer in the two-wheeler segment, learners would undergo hands-on training on latest EV models, and the most advanced diagnostic tools.
