UTI Selects Bosch to Develop New Courseware, Advance EV Training

The courseware will address demand for technicians with electric vehicle battery knowledge and skills.

Universal Technical Institute (UTI) has selected Bosch to support the development of new courseware that helps meet the needs of the growing electric vehicle (EV) market, which continues to see record sales and a demand for skilled technicians.

The new courseware is another step in UTI’s overall EV strategy, which also includes enhancing and offering new EV certifications in some of its manufacturer-specific advanced training (MSAT) programs and developing new training models and partnership opportunities to expand UTI’s overall EV ecosystem.

As part of its commitment to prepare graduates for an industry with ever-changing technology, UTI and Bosch are creating new courseware covering battery EVs for students enrolled in the school’s automotive technician training programs.

The new courseware builds on the hybrid and EV training enhancements already deployed at UTI’s three California campuses in Sacramento, Rancho Cucamonga and Long Beach. The course introduces high-voltage vehicle operation, explains electric vehicle components, operation, diagnosis and service, reviews electronic principles and provides unique training in electric battery vehicle system operation and testing.

“UTI has been working with major automotive industry leaders like Bosch for decades to develop technician training that evolves to meet the ongoing needs of the transportation industry,” said UTI CEO Jerome Grant. “Bosch has been at the forefront of some of these new technologies, and we are proud to be working with them to ensure our students continue to receive the industry-aligned training and tools they need to prepare for a lifelong, rewarding career.”

Pending regulatory approvals, the battery EV courseware is planned to be piloted at UTI’s Sacramento campus in the fall of 2022, with the intent to expand to additional campuses along with the existing EV courseware in the future.

“The demand for electric vehicles is quickly rising, and yet many technicians are not prepared to service these newer types of vehicles,” said Shawn Dupuie, fixed operations and training solutions manager, Bosch North America. “Bosch is continually looking for ways to provide the industry with the tools and knowledge necessary to keep up with new technologies. Working with UTI to develop an in-depth course will give technicians the training they need to service their customers better.”

The recent announcement by UTI comes at a time with surging demand for new EV technology. According to a recent report by McKinsey, it is expected that 65% of new car sales will be electric by 2030.
