OCTOBER 19 -  Two courses:

Advanced Driver Assist Systems: ADAS Fault Analysis  -  October 19 at Triton College    |     Instructor:  Louie Nelson, Carquest Technical Institute

Sponsored by Advance Professional and Carquest Technical Institute

This is a RARE HANDS-ON COURSE presented for the First Time, with classroom training PLUS a rare opportunity to experience the latest ADAS calibration equipment in use with live cars.

This NEW AUTEL EQUIPMENT HAS JUST HIT THE MARKET! You may never again have this type of opportunity to work with this cutting-edge equipment!

ADAS faults can come in a variety of forms. Component failure, networking problems, and calibration failures are at the top of the list. This class will explore ADAS failures and the analytic process used to solve these problems efficiently. As this technology rolls out of warranty, you can expect them to be in your service bays with your customers looking for solutions. Through examples in the classroom and live car demos you will learn how these systems can be effectively repaired using an understanding of the technology, strong foundational skill sets, and current service information.

Valvetrain Controls and Advanced Variable Valve Timing - November 9 at Triton College     |     Instructor: Jerry Tempel, Training Manager, ACDelco

Sponsored by CPS

This ILT course will cover valvetrain timing and control systems. Modern engines employ valve timing and lift adjustment strategies to improve fuel economy, power and emissions. Topics include function and operation of variable valve timing, valve lift and cylinder deactivation systems. Also discussed are diagnosis and repair techniques, including servicing chains and toothed belts, a review of basic engine mechanical testing and how these tests are affected by valvetrain. This class will also familiarize technicians with some of the latest engine technologies found on today’s vehicles. Some of the topics include: Variable Valve Timing (VVT), Spline Phaser system, Vane Phaser Overhead Cam (OHC) system, and Vane Phaser Overhead Cam (OHC) magnetically controlled system. This class will cover operation and unique service procedures related to each system.

John Thornton Hands-On Lab Scope Class - September 21 at Triton College    |     Instructor: John Thornton

This 8 hour class will allow the attendee to better use their Snap On or Pico lab scope.  Though there will be some classroom discussion, about 7 hours will be dedicated to acquiring patterns on the vehicle.

Each attendee will be assigned a vehicle, and will be giving a workbook with many scope pattern acquisition assignments.  The assignments are tailored to the assigned vehicle. 

We will discuss:

  • vertical scaling
  • horizontal scaling (timebase)
  • triggering
  • recording
  • saving patterns
  • supporting tools, such as current probes, synch probes and transducers
