DAF Trucks rolls out dedicated electric vehicle technician training14 January 2022

DAF Trucks has commenced dedicated electric vehicle (EV) product training for its network-based DAF dealer technicians, in anticipation of new deliveries of right-hand-drive LF Electric and CF Electric vehicles for UK customers in the coming weeks.

The training is being delivered at the DAF Academy based at DAF Trucks’ UK head office in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire. It forms part of a comprehensive programme of activities to prepare the DAF Dealer network for the uptake of EVs, with significant investment going into tooling and charging infrastructure, as well as training.

DAF LF Electric and CF Electric models are available to order in full UK-specification, and, following the first demonstrators which were delivered last year, the first customer vehicles will enter service in the coming weeks.

DAF EV product training at the DAF Academy includes in-depth EV maintenance and diagnosis procedures specific to the DAF Range of electric vehicles. Training content comes in addition to IMI Level 3 electric/hybrid vehicle system repair & replacement training which all delegates on the DAF EV product training have already successfully completed.

“We’re making sure we’re fully-prepared to support customers as they adopt DAF electric vehicles into their UK operations,” said Suzanne Moore, DAF training manager.
