Mumbai-based electric vehicle start-up eBikeGo is looking to introduce a training programme for mechanics of petrol two-wheelers and transform them to ‘EV Specialists’ across five major cities – Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai.
The duration of this training drive will be 30 to 45 days. During this EV service training program, the company will provide training manuals, 14 hours video tutorial (one tutorial will be of 30-45 minutes) wherein the mechanics will learn basics about EV, its issues and how to repair them; what kind of toolbox is required to repair EV and the skill set all are included in it. Theoretical training will be provided on an online app of eBikeGo and the practical training will be offline.
eBikeGo says it will provide the specialised training with 3 distinctive variants of vehicles on a pilot basis to test, fix and assemble them. On successful completion of the program, each mechanic will be given an eBikeGo approved station board and a certificate. Not just that, eBikeGo will likewise take its vehicles for adjusting or fixing problems with these mechanics which will help in creating more employment and business. This training drive will start from the first week of January 2021.
Dr. Irfan Khan, founder and CEO, eBikeGo said: "We at eBikeGo are extremely pleased to announce the first ever EV service training program to enable the mechanics of petrol vehicles to become future ready as 'EV Specialists'. This initiative helps the mechanics to secure job opportunities in the new environment that is rapidly moving to EV and also help to boost the EV ecosystem in India. With this training drive, eBikeGo will not only empower the mechanics but also enables them to be Atma Nirbhar (self-sufficient) which is the vision of our Prime Minister."
