New Delhi (India), July 14: Bolt. Earth, a leading provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, recently announced its collaboration with the Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC), a dedicated platform for skill development in India’s automotive industry. This partnership aims to empower the country’s workforce with comprehensive training on EV infrastructure.  

Recognizing the knowledge gaps in India’s automotive workforce regarding EV load estimations, load balancing, and safety parameters, this collaboration will bridge these gaps and enhance the industry’s skill competitiveness. The course, developed in partnership with ASDC, will provide a deep understanding of Level-1, Level-2, and Level-3 chargers, as well as a comprehensive overview of the EV charging infrastructure as a whole. 

“As a leader in the EV space, we are thrilled about this collaboration with ASDC,” said Bolt.Earth’s founder Mohit Yadav. “We’re solidifying our leadership position even further through this partnership and, at the same time, preparing for widespread EV adoption and innovation through industry education and skills development.”

”Our collaboration with ASDC will play a crucial role in addressing the lack of education in the automotive workforce, particularly as it relates to EVs,” said Mr. Yogesh Singhal, Head of Operations & CRM at Bolt.Earth. “By equipping India’s workforce workers with the necessary knowledge through this course, we’re encouraging indigenous skill development and innovation to meet the uptick in demand for EVs and related charging infrastructure.”
