This course is for any automotive technician expected to diagnose vehicle system faults and test electrical circuits or components. Automotive oscilloscopes are being increasingly utilised for the confirmation of faults and are now an essential piece of equipment for any workshops. The ability to test the signals passing between electronic systems and the respective actuators and sensors is now a routine skill set. This course is an introduction to the skills required in using a typical Automotive Oscilloscope for fault diagnosis. 

The SIMI Skillnet is funded by member companies and the Training Networks Programme, an initiative of Skillnets Ltd. funded from the National Training Fund through the Department of Education and Skills.  PLEASE NOTE: Skillnets is a state funded, enterprise led support body promoting and facilitating training and upskilling through networks, the Training Networks Programme (TNP) 2014, also provides funding to job-seekers to access, free of charge, relevant industry specific training programmes.  For more information contact Margaret O’Shea at email: training@simi.ie
