National Express Transit’s team of Compliance and Training Managers and Travel Techs were sole participants in a comprehensive, four-day training event where they received hands-on training in various EV maintenance areas and were certified in Lock Out Tag Out safety procedures.

Over the course of the training event, NELLC team members were trained in:

  • Low Voltage Systems
