Battery Associates leads vocational and educational programmes to meet the pressing need for qualified workers along the battery value chain.
WHY BATTERY EDUCATION MATTERS?
With batteries playing a tremendous role in the energy transition, it is essential to develop a highly skilled workforce along the entire battery value chain.
The European Battery Alliance estimates the battery workforce to reach around 800,000 by 2025. The sector however lacks adequate battery-focused training and B.A hopes to address the skills gap.
BatteryMBA is a 12-week CPD accredited programme for aspiring battery leaders worldwide. BatteryMBA provides battery enthusiasts with a series of industry-focused lectures combining in-depth technical and business knowledge around battery topics. Lectures are taught by recognised industry leaders and topics range from lithium-ion battery cell production to clean tech market trend analysis. The programme relies on a global network of battery leaders and provides continuous training since participants have access to all prior and future lecture recordings.
