In partnership with MWTEC, SkillFusion will provide Michigan residents with comprehensive EDT training and certification for work involving the maintenance and repair of EV chargers.

Detroit, MI – SkillFusion, an industry-first software platform for electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE) operations and maintenance (O&M) providers, has announced a partnership with the Michigan Workforce Training and Education Collaborative (MWTEC), to provide online training curriculum for students in preparation for careers in the emerging world of vehicle electrification as part of the State of Michigan’s EV Jobs Academy, a collaborative that puts employers in the driver’s seat to develop education and training solutions to meet the advanced automotive mobility and electrification industry’s talent needs.

Students will have access to SkillFusion’s first-of-its-kind skill enhancement and certification EVSE Diagnostic Technician (EDT) program. The program provides non-electricians with the needed skills and certifications to carry out specific technical work on electric vehicle (EV) chargers, such as servicing communication and networking systems.

“To support the country’s EV charging network, we need more than just licensed electricians,” said Elaina Farnsworth, co-founder and CEO of SkillFusion. “SkillFusion’s training will provide the sector with a pipeline of certified technicians with a broader range of skills, critical to the operations and maintenance of the EV charging industry. Together we can fuse this talent pool with endless opportunities and support the industry’s goal to reduce charger downtime and increase charger reliability simultaneously.”

MWTEC, a non-profit founded in 2023, serves as Michigan’s central resource for collaborative employer-aligned education and training that ensures achievement of the state’s economic and education goals. By working with organizations like SkillFusion, MWTEC provides Michigan residents with access to the training and education need for high pay jobs and advancement opportunities.

Dr. Amy Lee, President of MWTEC, emphasized MWTEC’s dedication to enhancing educational opportunities throughout Michigan, “Through collaboration with SkillFusion, MWTEC aims to make the EDT program readily available, particularly in rural areas and those without traditional educational resources. This partnership reflects our commitment to innovative education initiatives, essential for sustaining Michigan’s prominence in EV mobility.”

SkillFusion’s skill enhancement programs will help Michigan residents develop a valuable skill set, earn an industry certified credential, and enhance their professional credibility and work readiness. Once earning their EDT certification, individuals are placed within SkillFusion’s proprietary database of certified technicians which allows EVSE operations and maintenance providers the ability to access a skilled labor pool to fulfill service obligations—ensuring charger uptime and availability across the nation’s network.

“We are proud to be working in our home state to unlock new career opportunities in a growth sector and be a part of the electrification movement,” said Farnsworth.
