Some colleges and high schools have strong electric/hybrid programs, some not so strong, and still some do not believe that training them to do electric/hybrid is important for an entry level tech.

This discussion is not to settle a score or find which is right or wrong, but instead, we will discuss what should be taught, and what a student coming out of these programs will likely do in their first years. We will talk about safety, maintenance, and diagnostics.

Thanks for the heads-up, Brian! Anthony Williams hit it out of the ball park on anchoring this round table. Education will be the only way we solve the many management and recruitment problems afflicting our industry. I lost the last 20 minutes of this 2-hour program due to Internet issues, but I found myself agreeing with just about every view point expressed. This was a great night forโ€ฆ
