SAE International Announces Vehicle Electrification Program: Certificate And Certifications

WARRENDALE, Pa., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SAE International is introducing a personnel certification program that enables engineers, product development technicians, and other associated personnel to earn a certificate of competency or certification in the area of vehicle electrification (VE).

Through a process that engaged a group of auto industry subject matter experts, a vehicle electrification body of knowledge was developed and segmented into three distinct levels to meet the needs of specific personnel. Exam questions were generated to align with the body of knowledge to address each of the three levels. 

The VE Fundamentals and Safety Certificate of Competency is designed for individuals who require training and validation of knowledge in general electrified vehicle architectures, basic electricity and electronics, and critical safety precautions and procedures.  Job roles include manufacturing personnel, procurement, sales, management, and engineering undergraduate students. This credential requires completing an online training course and passing an online exam.

The VE Professional Certification level, due to launch in February 2013, is designed for individuals to validate mastery of knowledge in general VE safety and all major VE systems.  Job roles include engineers, technicians, and other technical personnel assigned to electrified vehicle platforms but not involved with direct design of VE systems.  Passing an online exam results in certification that remains in force for three years.

The VE Engineer/Scientist Certification level will launch in March 2013 and is for individuals to validate mastery of knowledge in the science and design of all major VE systems.  Job roles include engineers and R&D scientists engaged in focused research or product design of VE systems such as battery packs, motors, power electronics, and systems integration.  Passing an online exam also results in certification that remains in force for three years.

As with many industry-driven certificates and certifications, SAE International's intent is that these credentials will help individuals elevate their stature within their organizations and offer them increased employment portability. Companies will also value having credentialed professionals on staff to ensure they have the proper skills and to enhance credibility with their customers. Additionally, human resource personnel often utilize these types of professional credentials as a differentiator for job applicants.
