Podcast: Setting Future Techs Up for EV Success

Aug. 9, 2022

After being awarded a $350,000 grant for EV education, Donna Farrell and Ernie Morelock of Northeast State Community College share why EV training is mission critical for today's techs.

As more EVs begin to enter the mainstream car parq, knowledge of how to work on those vehicles is becoming critically important for shop techs to have. Northeast State Community College in Blountville, Tennessee, recently received a near-$350,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to integrate EV technology training into its curriculum to ensure local techs are getting that information.

Donna Farrell, Northeast State dean of technologies, and Ernie Morelock, automotive department chair, join Digital Reporter Hanna Bubser to discuss what the grant means for their college and why EV technology training is vital for today's techs.
