This SIMI SKILLNET 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.
