“I just received my certificate of achievement for completing the 40 hour EV intro safety & service (ASE L3). I took the class in Stockton at Delta with professor Bonnema… Professor Bonnema did a great job and I learned a lot from all the homework and all the hands on lab experience. I can now service a Prius with a bad battery and bring it back to life and got some experience diagnosing many faults in a Prius via the test car in Bonnema’s shop. I could go on and on but I just wanted to let you know I really appreciate this opportunity it was a great experience I’d suggest to anyone interested in getting into working on hybrids or electrical vehicles.
