Understanding electricity and electrical circuits is becoming the ultimate quest for the future automotive technician. A good electrical foundation is not only a bonus, as in the past, but a necessity in the future. Nothing will solidify the demand for a technician’s skills in the future job market like electrical savvy. Understanding what methods work, what tools are available and what test to perform will make every technician more valuable and profitable for many years to come. Electricity, for the most part, is unseen. We will explore the tools that enable us to visualize what is happening on a circuit. With the right tool, a technician can predict the outcome of a circuit and compare the measurements obtained during testing to the expected values. As simple as that sounds, it gets complicated when how the tool is testing the circuit is not properly understood. In this class, we will explore both normal and faulted circuits and demonstrate proper electrical tool application.

Since man began to build machines for industrial use, and especially since motors have been used to power them, problems of vibration reduction and isolation have engaged engineers. Gradually, as vibration isolation and reduction techniques have become an integral part of machine design, the need for accurate measurement and analysis of mechanical vibration has grown. Over the last 15 or 20 years a whole new technology of vibration measurement has been developed which is suitable for investigating modern highly stressed, high speed machinery. Using piezoelectric accelerometers to convert vibratory motion into understandable data, the process of measurement and analysis is efficiently performed by the versatile abilities of these electronics. This class will show you how to use modern techniques to identify the vibration source, track the transfer path and pinpoint the responding component.

The primary goal of each wheel alignment service is to give our customers a safe and reliable vehicle that performs as designed every time. In this class a review of the alignment angles will be covered. This review is focused on what’s important about angles and why we need to check them during every alignment. We will introduce a concept that will help balance the angles in the right relationship, ensuring performance that meets OE standards. The best practice alignment centers around the customer’s expectations. The customer expects their vehicle to receive a complete alignment, and to be made aware of any underlying concerns that may need to be addressed to return their vehicle to proper alignment. The process that is covered in this class is very thorough and insures that the customer receives the technician’s best efforts. As a technician, this practice will be appreciated as it is designed to avoid as many comebacks as possible. It begins with the pre-alignment preliminary inspection of the components, the vehicles driving tendencies and alignment angles. When these angles are not within the preferred specification, an adjustment or solution will be necessary. “Getting it in the green” or “setting the toe and letting it go” are not good enough, as we will discuss in this class.

It begins with the pre-alignment preliminary inspection of the components, the vehicles driving tendencies and alignment angles. When these angles are not within the preferred specification, an adjustment or solution will be necessary. “Getting it in the green” or “setting the toe and letting it go” are not good enough, as we will discuss in this class.

Have you noticed that some people are naturally good troubleshooters? Perhaps it is a technician whose diagnostic abilities are efficient, quick and accurate. Perhaps it is the Service Advisor who deals with difficult customers and always comes away from it with a smile and a sold work order. Or perhaps it is someone else in your life who seems to always come up with great solutions to their problems. How do they do it? One of their secrets of success, perhaps the most important one, is that they have a process for troubleshooting. This process, whether they practice it consciously or unconsciously, allows them to successfully overcome the challenges they face. In this course, The Logical Troubleshooting Process, we are going to examine the elements that drive successful troubleshooting. These elements include: attitude, knowledge and a six-step process for troubleshooting. While our focus is the application of these elements to our professional roles in the automotive service arena, the reality is that you can apply these troubleshooting skills to any area of your life. Note: This course is specifically designed to be attended by Service Advisors, Service Managers and Technicians.

Restoring the vehicle to proper alignment can be difficult when a technician does not properly understand that there is more to do than setting the angles we are familiar with; caster, camber and toe. For example, a vehicle may have struck a curb and bent a steering knuckle slightly. If the vehicle is returned to within specs without replacing the bent steering knuckle, it may drive okay in a straight line, but produce handling and tire wear issues when cornering. This class explores the more advanced alignment measurements such as vehicle symmetry, steering axis inclination, scrub radius and much more. Throughout this class the technician will gain understanding of many possible underlying issues that result from collision or vehicle alterations, as well as the solutions that are available when adjustments are not provided from the factory. Becoming familiar with all the many functions that modern alignment machines have to offer will make each technician a better alignment specialist.

Since man began to build machines for industrial use, and especially since motors have been used to power them, problems of vibration reduction and isolation have engaged engineers. Gradually, as vibration isolation and reduction techniques have become an integral part of machine design, the need for accurate measurement and analysis of mechanical vibration has grown. Over the last 15 or 20 years a whole new technology of vibration measurement has been developed which is suitable for investigating modern highly stressed, high speed machinery. Using piezoelectric accelerometers to convert vibratory motion into understandable data, the process of measurement and analysis is efficiently performed by the versatile abilities of these electronics. This class will show you how to use modern techniques to identify the vibration source, track the transfer path and pinpoint the responding component.

With a conventional camshaft, all the variables that determine valve timing, lift, duration and overlap are cast in stone the moment the lobes are ground. Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) or otherwise known as Variable Valve Timing (VVT) was then developed in order to achieve better overall versatility in a wider RPM range and various operating conditions by phasing the camshaft. Camshaft phasing systems allow the valve timing to be adapted to the respective operating conditions of the engine. With completion of this class technicians can expect to gain a deeper understanding of: •Camshaft foundations and the benefits of Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) •Design and function of many modern VCT systems •Operation of various phaser styles •Special tooling requirements Variable Displacement oil pump technology •Testing of sensors, actuators and mechanical components of the VCT system •Scan tool data analysis and waveform diagnostics
