“I cannot say enough good things about Cleantech Institute’s Certified Electric Vehicle Technician (CEVT) Training Program. The staff is on the leading edge of technology. A diverse group of instructors providing in-depth theory and hands-on at an engineering level.
The CEVT training class offers in-depth explanation of information presented. CTI has well equipped classroom and workshops. The CEVT course also incorporates  extra-curriculum events, networking opportunities in the EV industry, entrepreneurial and employment opportunities. The course includes presentations from guest speakers in the EV industry i.e. manufacturers, conversion companies and technical experts. The course is demanding & challenging which is a testament to its high standards. Thank you to all at the Cleantech Institute”
David Kay (Community College Instructor and graduate of the Cleantech Institute)

“ Best class I’ve ever taken period. Smartest and most accomplished teacher.
If you are into electric vehicle in any way, take this class.”
Melvin Dotts
Long Beach, CA

“My overall experience with this course was positive and I feel I learned a great deal about electricity, especially in the simplest, most basic concepts. I think the course has prepared me for further hands-on experience taking a part an internal combustion engine car and convert it to electric. Considering my little electric automotive experience to start with, I needed to learn the basic concepts of both which this course has provided me. Moreover, this education opens the door for many possibilities considering the different parts, maintenance and growing technology in the controller units and electric motor, but even more with the breakthroughs in battery technology. This course will be a great starting point to begin to modify and create electric vehicles.”
Frank Labita
Huntington Beach, CA

The education of clean energy technologies that was taught in the class has been invaluable to me. I am now a strong proponent of clean alternative energy systems for everyday use. In particulars, the conversion of an ICE vehicles into all electric vehicles will not only save money, but will have a positive impact on preserving on environment. The Cleantech Institute has become a leader in the Green Energy Education movement and I am a proud graduate of this class.”
Joe Schultz, III.

“As a student of the CEVT at the Cleantech Institute, I find the curriculum to be broad based initially and fast paced toward the latter of the course. The materials provided and detailed lectures pinpoints the information necessary to understand the history, infrastructures, science, engineering and mechanics of the electric vehicle. This will help students to be prepared for the challenges and opportunities opening in the EV market.
As a U.S. veteran I believe this course is well-suited for young veterans with hands-on experience. The knowledge learned will provide a chance for former US military personnel to launch their own businesses or gain successful employment in the electric vehicle industry.”
Steve Schachowski
Irvine, CA

“First of all, I would like  to thank all people at the Cleantech Institute who gave me a chance to learn EV technology and become a Certified Electric Vehicle Technician. I have learned a lot from this class. I do not have any complaints about this class. It requires a lot of basic knowledge about Maths, Physics and Chemistry. In order to be successful in this class, students need to be prepared for all basic knowledge in science high school or colleges. It is a wonderful course and I like it a lot. Again, thank you very much.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the CNCP program because of broad spectrum presented in the nanotech and clean tech fields.  The clean tech portion, I believe, should be taught more widely because it’s so relevant to our current world issues at energy, etc.  Ideally, the course should be expanded to, and offered at the university level, not only to increase the availability of the course, but produce more professionals/students in these needy fields. Overall, I can only say positive things about the CNCP course because it provides tremendous opportunity and a guided pathway to the clean tech and nanotech fields.  Basically a great look into frontier technologies and problem solving current issues of energy. “
Stephen Hsu 
Areadra, Ca 91007

“This program provided a very good fundamental understanding of nanotechnology and clean technology.  I personally enjoyed the opportunity to visit the CNSI lab and the speakers from industry.  As for as overall promotion of the program, I feel a majority of the people take this program to aid them in finding a job in this field.  Due to it being very new, it can sometimes be very hard to guarantee any job to incoming students and deter them from taking it seriously.  However, the networking opportunities and unique experiences from this program are what made this program extremely valuable to me and I would not hesitate to take it again! “
W. James Schada 
Los Angeles, CA 90005

“An excellent, broad overview of the breadth of the nanotech and cleantech industries, the course delves into enough detail to thoroughly expose students to the variety of possibilities.  Without an advanced degree, the course is challenging but adapted to all levels so everyone gains knowledge. The opportunities to tour labs and see the latest tech adds to the experience as well.  Add to that the network possibilities and I can say the value is more than worth the tuition. “
