Electric trucks require new maintenance plans and protocols and new training programs for technicians. Safety must continue to be a priority, particularly when working in high-voltage environments. Join NACFE and industry experts to learn more about how the industry is planning to train technicians, drivers, and more to safely operate electric trucks while maximizing uptime.

In this training, participants will learn:

How is operating and servicing an electric truck different from diesel vehicles (e.g., schedules, expenses, etc.)?

Where can fleets turn for training and professional development opportunities related to electric trucks?
