Battery Academy


Our vulnerability and reliance on oil is putting us in danger and everyday we are being threatened by global unrest and a finite oil supply. It has awakened and accelerated our need to revert to one of the few natural phenomena available to us to allow the human race to continue to coexist with its environment - mobile power.

Our world has become ever more mobile and almost all tools and creature comforts are electrically driven. The demand for more efficient electrochemical storage batteries is increasing at an alarming rate. For instance, today Hybrid vehicles are being developed by almost all major car manufacturers autonomously or in joint ventures and are relying on the development of cheaper, lighter and smaller batteries for their success. Communications, position monitoring, detection and entertainment devices are all mobile power consumers. The reliance on "mission critical" floating battery banks to power UPS systems in the Power, Telecommunications, Health, Financial Institutions and Military is enormous.

The course will be available in English language only and primarily available in the USA, United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
Course duration may normally take 6 months or fast tracked to qualification where desired.

Qualification carries our

"Advanced Trade Certification in Battery Technology"
