Using IMI’s Award in the Diagnosis, Testing and Repair of Electric Hybrid Vehicles and Components as a foundation, ‘EV Masters’ is a course which will supercharge your electric vehicle diagnostic skills.

Over four days, you will be fully immersed in the practical diagnosis of hybrid and electric vehicles. The time spent in the classroom will be kept to a minimum, whereas the time spent in the workshop, working on real cars, will be maximised through our unique learning techniques.

Not only will this learning experience provide successful candidates with an IMI level 4 Award in the Diagnosis, Testing and Repair of Electric/Hybrid Vehicles and Components (OFQUAL ID 601/0975/1), but it will also, and most importantly, give you the skills, knowledge, and confidence to undertake the diagnosis and associated repairs of electrified vehicles.


Our Virtual Academy is proud to partner with HEVRA in the continuous development of EV Masters due to their unrivalled experience in the diagnosis and repair of electrified vehicles. Many thanks go out to HEVRA for their ongoing support.

With testing and measurement being at the centre of EV diagnostics, it was only right we partnered with a company leading the way in this area. EV Masters utilises the latest EV kit and accessories from Pico Technology. Many thanks to the Pico Automotive team for their ongoing support.
