What's Happening at Diesel Training - January 2024
Here’s a quick preview of in-person and online training events coming your way this January from Diesel Laptops…
Diesel Training goes back to the beach with two exclusive trainings in Redding, CA:
New Classes at Diesel Laptops University!
We release new Diesel Laptops University courses each month, all taught by our expert DLU trainers with decades of hands-on experience. This month, we’re featuring classes on Diesel Tablet and Diesel Handheld Pro.
In this course, students will learn how to set up and use their Diesel Tablet from Diesel Laptops. Positioned between entry-level and dealer-level diagnostic tools, the Diesel Tablet reads and clears fault codes, collects vehicle performance data, and can also run emission system commands on the EGR, DPF, and SCR systems on commercial trucks.
Topics covered include:
- Setting up the Tablet, connecting to a vehicle, and saving vehicle data
- Retrieving active and inactive fault codes and how to find related service information
- How to monitor live data from the vehicle, ECU, and specific modules
- Best practices to perform diagnostic tests and service routines (including emissions service)
Diesel Handheld Pro:
In this course, students will learn how to use the Diesel Handheld Pro to read and clear DTCs, read live data, perform DPF regens, initiate emission and maintenance resets, and punch-out directly to the Diesel Repair platform.
By the end of this class, students will:
- Understand the four (4) sections of the Diesel Handheld Pro interface
- Know how to review and compare saved vehicle data
- Be able to access remote help as needed
- Maintain upgrades to Diesel Handheld Pro
Diesel Laptops University also has courses on Electrical I, Electrical II, TEXA, Jaltest, Starting & Charging, and more!
Best of all, all of DLU’s classes are on-demand– when and where you need them.
Tech Tip Video
In this Tech Tip, we’re talking about communication breakdowns– specifically, when your computer refuses to talk to your truck… or vice versa! This video will change the way you understand the two machines and how they work together. Diesel Training instructor Scott Meek makes it all make sense.
