There is ample evidence that basic button pushing classes have not produced the comprehension and comfort that allows a technician to break out of basic functionality. Many shops have invested heavily in scan tools only to have them used primarily as code readers and not much else. This series as a whole does not focus on any one scan tool platform, as our clients own and use many variations of scan tools. We will present scan tool concepts using many of the common scan tool platforms including both multi-line (aftermarket) and manufacturer-specific tools. In Module 1, Practical Application and Analysis, we will: • Introduce a focused, efficient diagnostic routine. • Apply the diagnostic routine to scan tool testing. • Describe how scan tool technology has developed and where it is going. • Explore computer inputs and outputs then compare and contrast what is displayed on a scan tool. • Provide examples of functionality from 10+ scan tool platforms • Using service information to understand the data used to monitor specific vehicle systems, as well as information that may be available through the scan tool. • Cover changes in how Global services work, what has been added and how to use the information to find solutions more efficiently.8 hrs, 0 minILTVirtualJohn GillespieWatch Video

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 diagnostics4 hrs, 0 minILTVirtualGlenn YoungWatch Video

Although modern vehicles, in some cases, may require much less frequent routine maintenance than older vehicles, they are far from maintenance free. As automotive technology continues to advance, some maintenance services previously required with earlier technology may be eliminated or reduced, however in many cases, maintenance becomes more critical for these advanced systems. Topics in this class include: • Fluid condition inspection and testing • Maintenance intervals • Service practices • Accessory drive systems • Cooling system hardware • Filtration inspection and service • Carbon issues 4 hrs, 0 minILTVirtualGlenn Young

There is ample evidence that basic button pushing classes have not produced the comprehension and comfort that allows a technician to break out of basic functionality. Many shops have invested heavily in scan tools only to have them used primarily as code readers and not much else. This series as a whole does not focus on any one scan tool platform, as our clients own and use many variations of scan tools. We will present scan tool concepts using many of the common scan tool platforms including both multi-line (aftermarket) and manufacturer-specific tools. In Module 1, Practical Application and Analysis, we will: • Introduce a focused, efficient diagnostic routine. • Apply the diagnostic routine to scan tool testing. • Describe how scan tool technology has developed and where it is going. • Explore computer inputs and outputs then compare and contrast what is displayed on a scan tool. • Provide examples of functionality from 10+ scan tool platforms • Using service information to understand the data used to monitor specific vehicle systems, as well as information that may be available through the scan tool. • Cover changes in how Global services work, what has been added and how to use the information to find solutions more efficiently.8 hrs, 0 minILTVirtualGlenn YoungWatch Video

Have you ever been curious about the reason that Ohm’s law works in some cases, but not others? Have you ever considered the practical application of Kirchhoff’s laws? This class will address foundational concepts relating to voltage, current, resistance, and power as well as the effects of capacitance and inductance on circuit operation. Additionally, time-saving testing techniques will be highlighted along with tool usage. This is an interdisplinary class dealing with all types of test equipment ranging from test lights and ohmmeters to lab scopes and megohmmeters. This is not a math class. All laws introduced will be done with the intention of practical application in vehicle diagnostics. 8 hrs, 0 minILTVirtualRandy Briggs
