Automotive Research & Design was founded in 1987 as a technology company specializing in the development of Electric Vehicle (EV) and Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) propulsion systems. Our technical expertise has positioned AR&D as one of the first private training and consulting companies to offer EV/HEV education and training to the automotive aftermarket and educational industries.
In partnership with Automotive Research and Design, SAE International has developed the first Certificate of Competency requiring hands-on training.
The 5-Day SAE International Advanced HEV Diagnostics CoC requires five days of Hybrid and Electric Vehicle training, administered by Panoptic Training, a wholly-owned subsidiary of AR&D, before allowing participants to take a written and practical exam to receive their certificate.
