Electrical Testing Techniques: Why are they essential?
This class is tailored to help you excel in handling various scenarios from diagnosing trouble codes to dealing with intermediate faults and malfunctioning electrical components. With Electrical Testing Techniques, you'll learn the art of reading, applying, and observing how an ECM (Engine Control Module) responds to its registrations. Some tests may involve actuating components using computer software, but the crucial part is understanding whether the electrical messages sent by the ECM to different components are accurate and reliable.
In this class, technicians will learn to re-draw and simplify wiring diagrams, making them easier to comprehend. This skill will lead to faster and more accurate diagnostic troubleshooting.
The best part about learning these electrical diagnostic skills is that they aren’t specific to any industry. With the skills and techniques from this class, you’ll be able to work on everything from heavy-duty vehicles, off-highway equipment, generators, really any piece of equipment with an electrical system.
Our training department has developed hands-on training aids to reinforce concepts learned in the course. These aids replicate real-life circuits, providing practical repair experience in HVAC control units, starter circuits, and automated transmission wiring circuits.
