VT Tech to offer first training of its kind in the state on October 13

Randolph Center, VT.   The increasing number of electric vehicles on the road increases the need for safety, service, and sales personnel to understand the technology and how to handle it safely. In response, Vermont Technical College will host four courses to address the training needs of these audiences.
