Qualification "Live working (LW)": Electrotechnical work under voltage on HV systems
in motor vehicles
Special expertise is required for work on electrical systems in motor vehicles which
cannot be switched off due to defects, accident damage or other special circumstances.
This work may therefore only be carried out by qualified electricians or other persons
from the automotive sector with the additional qualification for "live working (LW)".
The basis for the further training - "Live working" is the successful qualification
"Basic training". Employees who have successfully completed the "Basic training"
already fulfil the requirements for participation in the "Working under live conditions"
- "Live working (LW)" qualification due to their previous knowledge. These documents
are intended for use in further training as a specialist for high-voltage systems
in motor vehicles and for preparation for the final examination.
The author Henning Wagner trained and worked for years in two trades, as
a motorbike mechanic and toolmaker, before studying Engineering. He has been teaching
Automotive Engineering for over 20 years, in particular specialised classes for
automobile electricians and now for automobile mechatronics engineers, with a particular
emphasis on vehicle communications technology, as well as at the Master School for
Motor Vehicle Technicians. As a specialist advisor for automotive engineering, the
author has been heavily involved in teacher training and in curriculum commissions
for many years on behalf of his regional council and the Baden-Württemberg Ministry
of Culture, Youth and Sport. He has also been very involved in the Implementation
Commission for the Introduction of Learning Areas and in the State Committee for
the Coordination of the Final Examinations for Automobile Mechatronics Engineers.
He is particularly interested in the further development of laboratory teaching
in vocational school teaching practice; this is also integrated into this book by
means of corresponding worksheets. Due to his background, the author frequently
gets his hands dirty in the workshop himself, in order to experience automotive
technology from the viewpoint of the workshop staff, i.e. the trainees, and to ensure
that this book is as practical and technologically up-to-date as possible.
