Throughout the five-day workshop, teams will learn about Year Two competition rules, upcoming deliverables, and EcoCAR events for the coming year. The teams will also have the opportunity to receive valuable and extensive training in donated software and components from competition-level sponsors, including: U.S. Department of Energy, General Motors, Argonne National Laboratory, MathWorks, dSPACE, Freescale, AVL Powertrain, Siemens, GKN Driveline, Ricardo, Tesa Tape, Champlain, Mentor Graphics, Weber Shandwick, and more.

In addition to the technical training and sessions, Communications Managers and Project Managers will each have a dedicated track in which they will learn about the communications and project management deliverables for the year.  The Communications Managers will also be participating in media relations & video production training while the Project Managers will focus on building leadership skills and quality management.
