Considering the boom of electric vehicles in India, there is a great demand for EV mechanics and on-road assistance services. To cater to this last mile issue of onroad repair, ReadyAssist has put forward an initiative to train skilled mechanics on EV dynamics and repair.
The two-year program is run with a vision to create a robust EV ecosystem in the nation. The venture planned out a phased-based system to train beginners and expert mechanics separately in the EV domain. Not just for mechanics, the training program aims to upskill any freshers, college students, or EV enthusiasts to dive deep into the EV domain.
On completion of the training, trainers from both companies will access the skilled mechanics to provide with a “Merit Certificate”.
This will certify them as skilled and accessed EV mechanics in the future-ready domain. Willing mechanics can onboard with ReadyAssist start working right after the completion of training. One’s willing to work can assist PAN India customers of ReadyAssist for the repair and diagnostic services for their doorstep and on-road services.
All the resources for the training will be provided from Hero electric, along with an industry visit to provide a better idea of the EV dynamics.
Sohinder Gill, the CEO, of Hero Electric, stated the company’s vision to empower and educate people with knowledge.

He expects the partnership to accelerate the company’s vision of empowering people.
Inlining with it, Vimal Singh, CEO, ReadyAssist stated that upskilling mechanics in the EV domain can increase their revenue income by several folds.

This training will enable the mechanics to convert their private repair shop to Hero electric authorized workshops, post examination, and certification. He indicated the millions of mechanics in the nation who needs little upskilling in the EV domain, in order to meet the needs of the growing EV market in India.
