Electude North America is pleased to announce its partnership with Advanced Vehicle Technology Group (AVTG)


BRAINTREE, Mass., Feb. 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Led by Dave Macholz (https://www.linkedin.com/in/david-macholz-630b5b62/), AVTG is joining forces with Electude to provide training for Electude’s new Connect line of training aids. In addition, AVTG will offer train-the-trainer for educators planning on adding or expanding their instruction regarding hybrid and electric vehicles. 

Darrell Christopher, Electude Director of Sales, North America, said, “Instructors have to justify their spending and return-on-investment for purchase of things like training aids. We believe just making and selling these devices is simply not enough, and that many customers will benefit from online or in-person training solutions designed to ensure they get the most from the devices and e-learning we provide.”

Dave Macholz, founder and CEO of AVTG said, “Electude already sets itself apart from other providers of training aids by integrating courseware with every device that teaches the student how to use the device and provides hands-on activities for using the device, which are also tracked and auto-graded to save the teacher time. My team at AVTG will work with schools adopting these products and ensure that they are set up, working properly and that teachers have strategies in-place for their use as part of their automotive curriculum before they start teaching with them.”


Macholz also said, “It is apparent that electric and hybrid vehicle is a ‘hot topic’ in automotive education. It is also a fact that many educators do not feel ready to teach the topic due to lack of their own hands-on experience, lack of proper equipment and vehicles for their shops and uncertainty about curriculum and learning materials. We at AVTG, especially via our partnership with Electude, will work hard to address these topics, including strategies for gaining access to funding to purchase what is needed to create a great student experience.”

Electude and AVTG will be at the Vision Hi Tech Training and Expo February 29 to March 3 (https://visionkc.com/) to introduce Connect goods and services, and will also hold a joint webinar with a focus on accessing grants for purchase of EV training equipment on February 21 at 4:00 pm Eastern time (https://electude.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_6KnBIyKER2CQZIXf8sMJAw#/registration).
