Whether you are an apprentice technician looking to become more proficient in electrical diagnostics, or a seasoned veteran who would just like a refresher and also learn new information, this is the course for you. You will learn the skills necessary to become more efficient and profitable when performing electrical diagnostics work. You will learn these skills from a hands-on working automobile technician. This is definitely NOT your typical electricity and electronics training class!
