avatar for ACDC


We are an automotive training company that specializes in HYBRID and ELECTRIC VEHICLE training for the aftermarket.

Craig started the Automotive Career Development Center (ACDC) in 1998 while he was running his repair shop across the street. Originally ACDC was at 19 Wells Street in Worcester, Mass and State Emission classes were held there as well as many other technical and management courses. Craig and many other local trainers taught there and it grew quickly. In 2004 Craig closed the ACDC training center building and his shop across the street as Hybrid technology had found its place and he was off and running around the globe enlightening those that needed a hybrid education. Today Craig uses two local shop, Bravo Motors and Wayside Automotive, for classes near home. 95% of ACDC training is held out of state. The offices were located at 40 Boyd Street, upstairs in his old New England inner city home until summer of 2013.  ACDC bought an old fashioned  “3 Decker” built in 1905  and moved the office there. It is easy to spot, look for lots of hybrids and EVs in the driveway! Craig walks to work as it is 10 houses away. The new office has more space and room for all the hybrids, parts and associated training materials. Deb likes the fact that old battery packs no longer grace the living room.
