High-voltage training should not be a course where a trainer, wearing insulated gloves, waves a few times and then hands out certificates.
It is about the safety of employees.
Working on electrically powered vehicles with high-voltage systems without sound knowledge of high-voltage systems can be very dangerous.
In the worst case, serious or even fatal injuries can occur.

Unfortunately, however, it is becoming increasingly common for some training institutes to confuse high-voltage training with 08/15 training and to certify people who are then supposed to carry out work on vehicles with high-voltage systems in an incredibly short training period.

However, if the HV-2 basic training was carried out poorly, the participants will be thrown by the HV-3 training at the latest.
Unless the HV-3 training is also carried out by the same trainer who had already waved the participants through with insulated gloves during the HV-2 training.

However, if you not only want a certificate after your high-voltage training, but also to “work safely”, it is best to contact an EVAL-certified training institute straight away.
Anyone who has completed a high-voltage training course with an EVAL-certified training partner has nothing to worry about in many respects.
Because with EVAL-certified training partners you get firstly, very good training and secondly, an EVAL card that is internationally recognized.

However, if you have completed the HV-2 or HV-3 training level at a non-EVAL-certified training institute, your training will no longer be recognized by any EVAL-certified training institute from 01.01.2023.
However, since the HV-2 training is a prerequisite for the HV-3 training level, in the worst case you would have to complete the HV-2 training again at an EVAL-certified training institute.

We therefore recommend that you take your high-voltage training at an EVAL-certified training institute.

Here you will find a list of certified EVAL training institutes:

We have described what an EVAL card is in the following article:
