Connected Vehicle Management Overview ("CVMO")

The Best Source for Connected and Autonomous Vehicle Education

The CVMO is a condensed two-hour on-line intro to Connected Vehicle concepts.  This course is intended to benefit participants who are interested in enhancing their professional credibility with a foundational understanding of concepts necessary to succeed within the Connected Vehicle field.

Benefits of Participation
  • The online content offers the ability for participants to join whenever and wherever is convenient for you.
  • The content is highly relevant, practical information, giving you knowledge to draw upon as soon as you get back in the office.
  • The course will set you apart in the workforce by beginning your education in one of the fastest growing industries worldwide.
  • Not everyone can undertake an expensive and time consuming full 40 hour course, certification, or graduate degree program.  This two hour time commitment will give you the foundational understanding of the ecosystem and allow you to focus on your area of interest.



Online Course Outline

The CVMO is a highly selective two-hour overview course that offers participants a synopsis of in-vehicle technology, mobile devices and the infrastructure to support the industry.  Participants will be able to gain exposure to the connected vehicle ecosystem that is becoming part of the V2X, and V2D revolution.

Connected transportation offers substantial benefits, such as innovations in communications, navigation, infotainment and tracking vehicle operations. Through connected vehicle technology, the industry has the potential to create an environment where networked vehicles are aware of their operating environment (other vehicles, traffic control devices and current conditions) and can radically improve safety for and other road users such as motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Connected vehicle technology is evolving so rapidly that an information and skilled workforce gap is widening. Today's workforce needs to be highly skilled and flexible. The positions in highest demand are production workers, engineers and IT specialists needed to design and manufacture the next generation of vehicles.
