NEN 9140 Training: Safe working on on e-trucks advanced (ev-VP)

NEN 9140 for Truck Mechanics: Learn to Diagnose the HV System

Training information


This training, "Safe working on e-trucks advanced (ev-VP NEN 9140)," is designed for technicians who already possess the knowledge and skills required for an ev-Sufficiently Instructed Person (ev-VOP) and will take on the responsibility of verifying the de-energization of the HV (High Voltage) system to enable safe repairs on parts of this HV system, except for the HV battery.

You will learn how to safely conduct measurements and where to safely measure to ensure that the HV system is safe to work on, either by yourself or by a colleague who is an ev-VOP. Additionally, we will delve deeper into the functioning of an HV system and teach you to make simple diagnoses. After successfully completing this training, your employer may designate you as an ev-Competent Person (ev-VP) according to NEN 9140.

Prior to this training, you will first complete an online course of approximately 1 hour. You must pass this e-learning course before attending the practical day. You will become familiar with and learn to operate the equipment necessary to diagnose the HV system of an e-vehicle (such as a system tester, voltage meter, mega-ohmmeter).

The training concludes with a theory exam conducted by IBKI. Independent assessment is essential for ensuring that you have learned to work safely. RAI Association and BOVAG endorse the importance of this exam. Upon successful completion, you will receive the IBKI certificate, recognized by RAI Association and BOVAG. This certificate demonstrates your compliance with the NEN 9140 standard.


Before the practical day, you will first complete an online course of approximately 1 hour. You must pass this e-learning course.

After the practical day, you will be able to:

  • Perform maintenance, repairs, and basic diagnosis on HV components and systems.
  • Interrupt the HV system following the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Verify if the HV system is de-energized.
  • Assess the safety of your own workspace.
  • Assess the safety of an e-truck in relation to the work that needs to be performed on, with, or near the e-truck.
  • Conduct measurements with a Mega Ohm meter.
  • Perform measurements on charging cables.
  • Read the BMS (Battery Management System).
