|Principles, operation, and diagnosis of automotive electrical systems including: fundamentals of electricity, fundamentals of magnetism, charging systems, starting systems, and use of schematics.
A hands-on class using demonstrator boards in the classroom to explore voltages, amperage, relay operation, series and parallel circuits, DVOM use, and diagnostics.
This class continues into the shop with each student completing a worksheet doing live diagnostics, with emphasis on starter and alternator amperage testing, voltage drop testing, proper alternator testing, proper battery testing, and ground circuits. Testing in the shop is done with a VAT, DVOM, and any tool of choice.
This class can be aimed at either automotive, truck, or both applications.
A full-color training manual accompanies this class.
