ATG Schedule of Classes for July 2016
Posted to Industry Events Forum on 6/27/2016

Greetings, everyone!

The Automotive Training Group (ATG) has the following classes available for the month of July 2016. All classes run from 6:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. each night for both nights, except where noted below.

ADVANCED CIRCUIT & ELECTRICAL TESTING: This class is about using wiring diagrams as part of a larger strategy to increase testing accuracy and decrease testing time (and even the number of tests performed). We're combining wiring information with codes, symptoms, system interactions, Scan Tool PIDs & controls, and other observations.

* July 11th & 12th, 2016 Lubbock, TX * July 13th & 14th, 2016 Abilene, TX * July 18th & 19th, 2016 Billings, MT * July 25th & 26th, 2016 Toronto, Ontario (CANADA)

FORD ENGINE PERFORMANCE: This all-new Ford Engine Performance training manual and seminar covers the evolving failures of both new and legacy engine management systems. We provide in-the-trenches explanations of systems and failures, including case studies that show the latest tricks for finding root causes fast. This isn't just a summary of OEM information and training material, but was built by analyzing actual diagnostic struggles and documenting the shortest diagnostic paths.

* July 6th & 7th, 2016 Reno, NV * July 11th & 12th, 2016 Modesto, CA * July 11th & 12th, 2016 Fort Wayne, IN * July 13th & 14th, 2016 Fresno, CA * July 13th & 14th, 2016 Indianapolis, IN * July 25th & 26th, 2016 Rohnert Park, CA * July 25th & 26th, 2016 Portland, OR * July 27th & 28th, 2016 Sacramento, CA

EVAPORATIVE EMISSIONS SYSTEMS: OEM flowcharts routinely make EVAP system diagnostics too complicated. Despite the wide variety of systems out there, our research has revealed that a layered approach is much faster than the linear OEM approach, leading to a profitable diagnosis without the wasted (and unbillable) diagnostic time or multiple trips for your customer. This is the 2nd subject in our Import Series, but also comes with a thick Domestic section. First, we show you universal techniques applicable to every system. If no leaks are found, the procedures become more system-specific, but not yet manufacturer-specific. All systems fall into one of four categories listed below, and by following our universal procedures, you can still avoid the technical nonsense that typically lengthens diagnostic times! Most faults are found using these first two layers. We have also included manufacturer and system specific tips and tricks for those cases where you'll need to go that deep.

* July 6th & 7th, 2016 Woodbridge, NJ * July 11th & 12th, 2016 Rochester, NY * July 13th & 14th, 2016 Amherst, NY * July 18th & 19th, 2016 Falls Church, VA * July 20th & 21st, 2016 Virginia Beach, VA * July 25th & 26th, 2016 Richmond, VA * July 25th & 26th, 2016 Green Bay, WI * July 27th & 28th, 2016 Raleigh, NC * July 27th & 28th, 2016 Madison, WI This particular class runs 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. each evening.

ADVANCED DRIVABILITY DIAGNOSTICS STRATEGIES: This seminar builds on the success of our Intermittent Electrical seminar, bringing practical and real-world tests to quickly isolate to a root cause for drivability and trouble code faults. Traditional diagnostics tell us to 'check the basics', but that means hours of compression, vacuum, fuel pressure/volume and other time-consuming tests. So we've developed top-down tests for engine mechanical and engine management that help you drill down along the most effective diagnostic path. We'll show you the latest 'geeky' tools like transducers and processed Scan Tool functions, but we'll also include great ways to get results using the Scan Tools and traditional test equipment you already own.

* July 27th & 28th, 2016 Winnipeg, Manitoba (CANADA)
