May 16, 2014—Automotive Research & Design, a hybrid and electric vehicle technology firm, on Thursday announced a new advanced vehicle technology training division.

The new division, Panoptic Training, will focus on all advanced technology concepts in automotive training, including battery electric vehicles, compressed natural gas and fuel cell technologies.

The company said that the training will focus on educating students from all backgrounds, levels of education and understanding of advanced vehicle systems.

"AR&D has held the philosophy that our Hybrid and Electric Vehicle training is meant to encompass the scope of the technology rather than one make or model," says Jeff Minter, Executive Director of Technical Training at AR&D, "As we move forward we plan to apply that philosophy at Panoptic and expand our scope to include other advanced vehicle technologies."

Training courses will be held at AR&D’s new training center in Fitchburg, Wis.

The courses will be available through 2014 and additional advanced vehicle technology courses are planned for launch in 2015.
