At the core of Martorell factory, they have recently inaugurated a new training centre dedicated to electric mobility, in a space taking up 400 square metres specific courses that range from engineering to safety are at disposal of all SEAT collaborators.

The shifting towards electrical does not only concern products but also and especially the people who implement them: for this reason, the electromobility Learning Center (eLC) was born, a structure fully dedicated to the e-mobility.

Here SEAT is offering a complete course programme exclusively focused on electric vehicles; the target is relying on collaborators trained on all aspects connected with the new zero-emission technology. They organize sessions about the hybrid and electric technology, as well as on the importance of safety procedures in the management of electric vehicles. Moreover, the specialists who operate on the manufacturing line receive a targeted training, to learn how to connect and disconnect electric systems and to execute other operations with active high-voltage current.

This is completed by online courses, which have allowed 8,600 collaborators to gain higher awareness of electric vehicles also during lockdown periods caused by Coronavirus.

«The future is electricXavier Ros, Executive Vice-president Human Resources and Organization of SEAT, stated – and for this reason we are committed to training and developing our talents. Through the eLC we are going to provide our over 15,000 collaborators with all necessary instruments to face future challenges».

The new Learning Center dedicated to electric mobility is part of the 5-billion investment plan announced by SEAT, and consolidates its commitment to training as pillar on which the transition towards electric rests. Within 2021, SEAT and CUPRA will release five new electric and hybrid plug-in models, which will join the electric version of SEAT Mii, already on the market.
