    I am a semi-retired public school science teacher. What if I would like to take the Plugstar Dealer e-learning course as an individual? Once I am more knowledgeable and better trained, I might in fact like to apply or offer myself to a local dealership to work part-time. My main interest would be to advance the sale of EV’s. Can I get access to the Plugstar training, either free or for a fee?

    I need a car and i’m learning about EV, I visited an EV dealer in Daly City in whose parking lot all the store cars are parked outdoors. Then, I’m learning about EV’s batteries. and that their performance could be affected by sunlight, heat, and the lack of a roof for a certain amount of time. Especially , it will be against the car’s batteries to keep it getting a long time of heat,from sunlight and other natural resources. Please what could you tell me so I may still look at possible getting an EV. Thank You
