ONLY 1 PLACE LEFT! 

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. 

 

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) 2016, 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

This course is aimed at garage technicians involved in the test and repair of vehicle braking systems, this course will be of great benefit to those technicians who require training on Braking, ABS & ESP systems.  The subjects covered are brake actuation and hydraulics Bosch 2S, 2E, 5 and ABS 8 design systems. The knowledge and skills can be applied to similar systems of non Bosch origin.  The operation, maintenance and testing of the system is covered enabling the workshop staff to apply approved methods of safety when carrying out service and diagnostic procedures. It will also provide the foundation knowledge and skills required for attendance on advanced chassis control systems training.

This course is for technicians involved in the inspection of vehicles suspension and steering systems who require special knowledge to identify the appropriate adjustments and where component replacement is necessary. Incorrect steering geometry or wheel alignment can affect the vehicle’s stability and cause uneven tyre wear. The principles of steering geometry, the operation of alignment equipment and the interpretation of measurements are covered in this course, enabling technicians to correctly diagnose faults and propose the appropriate corrective action

Computer based diagnostics testers can store and display a vast array of information. This aim of this course is to explain and demonstrate how the information at hand can be used in an integrated way to affect a logical diagnostic procedure. Additionally the course will cover some of the lesser known variations of fault codes, actual values, adjustments and special functions found with Esi[tronic} 2.0 software.

Course Objectives: The aim of this 2 day course is to provide delegates with the underpinning knowledge and practical skills required for air conditioning refrigerant service on passenger cars. This course will also cover refrigerant handling procedures and safe working practise with vehicle air conditioning systems in accordance to the standard specified by current legislative conditions.

For Whom: Technicians who have not previously attended relevant refrigerant handling training and who are working towards certification by assessment. Note that the new EU certification is a legal requirement for each individual technician, i.e. even only connecting a refrigerant station to a vehicle will require the technician to have achieved certification.

Course content

  • Comprehensive training to cover current legislation and procedures
  • Health and safety procedures, COSHH
  • Introduction to air conditioning
  • Refrigration systems TXV and FOT
  • Service equipment and procedures
