ATG Schedule of Classes for October 2017
Posted to Industry Events Forum on 9/27/2017

Greetings, everyone!

The Automotive Training Group (ATG) has the following classes available for the month of October 2017. All classes run from 6:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. each night for both evenings, except as indicated below.

DURAMAX LML & LGH DIESEL ENGINE & EMISSIONS DIAGNOSTICS: Diesel engines are very simple -- just compress some air and fuel and you get combustion. However, with the advent of common rail fuel pressurization and delivery systems, diagnosis and repair became a complicated and time-consuming game. Add variable vane turbochargers, feedback EGR systems, and exhaust aftertreatment systems like Diesel Particulate Filters, Selective Catalyst Reduction, and Diesel Exhaust Fluid injection, and it's hard to know where to start. Other published Duramax repair information is inconsistent, and many of the flow charts run you in circles performing tests that would actually take days to complete. In contrast, our approach looks for high-level indicators to make a better possible-cause list and then offers multiple simple tests to trim that list as quickly as possible without taking too much apart. Duramax coverage includes special tools, workarounds, unused Scan Tool functions, and other great shortcuts for ruling out time-consuming tests. From a simple high-level pass to system-specific tips, this seminar covers the entire diagnostic process. We have included dozens of real world examples to prove that these strategies will find the root cause of your code or symptom in the shortest amount of time.

*Billings, MT: October 2nd & 3rd, 2017

*Bozeman, MT: October 4th & 5th, 2017

*San Jose, CA: October 25th & 26th, 2017

CUMMINS COMMON RAIL DIESEL & DURAMAX LML/LGH DIESEL: Diesel engines are very simple -- just compress some air and fuel and you get combustion. But with the advent of common rail fuel pressurization and delivery symptoms, diagnosis and repair became a complicated and time-consuming game. Add variable vane turbochargers, feedback EGR systems, and exhaust aftertreatment systems like Diesel Particulate Filters, Selective Catalyst Reduction, and Diesel Exhaust Fluid injection, and it's hard to know where to start. Other published Cummins and Duramax repair information is inconsistent, and many of the flow charts run you in circles performing tests that would take days. In contrast, our approach looks for high-level indicators to make a better possible-cause list, and then offers multiple simple tests to trim that list as fast as possible without taking too much apart. Cummins and Duramax are each comprehensively covered in separate sections, including special tools, workarounds, unused Scan Tool functions, and other great shortcuts. From a simple high-level pass to system-specific tips, this seminar covers the entire diagnostic process. We have included dozens of real world examples to prove that these strategies will find the root cause of your code or symptom in the shortest amount of time.

*Coraopolis, PA: October 16th & 17th, 2017

*Ellisville, MS: October 16th & 17th, 2017

FORD 6.0L, 6.4L & 6.7L POWERSTROKE ENGINE PERFORMANCE: ATG's Engine Performance Training series helps you choose the best tests that get you the most information with the least effort. These strategies are even more critical on Powerstroke engines because they are so time-consuming to work on. This seminar contains field-tested diagnostic & repair strategies that actually work, and includes tips and tricks developed in shops across the nation. Come for some great shortcuts & homemade tools to quickly isolate faults that can take hours more to find using conventional diagnostics.

*Albany, NY: October 16th & 17th, 2017

*Binghamton, NY: October 30th & 31st, 2017

*Syracuse, NY: November 1st & 2nd, 2017

*Topeka, KS: November 1st & 2nd, 2017

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.

*Jackson, MS: October 18th & 19th, 2017

DIRECT INJECTION & AIR INDUCTION SYSTEMS DIAGNOSTICS: This all-new training seminar is the third in our popular Import series. Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) is simple in design but difficult to diagnose because the traditional shortcuts of swapping out parts and disassembling for inspection are not practical. This is why we have adapted ATG's 'High Level Indicator' approach for ruling out possible causes before parts come off. The same approach applies to induction system diagnostics where repair information is vague, component access is difficult, and feedback loops are not always available. For all systems covered, the approach is first universal, and becomes manufacturer-specific only after the possible cause and tool/test lists have been completed and trimmed down. This seminar and manual were built by analyzing actual diagnostic struggles and documenting the shortest diagnostic paths for these systems. Because of this practical approach, you won't be buried in useless engineering detail -- only useful facts that you can measure and that will help guide your diagnostic path. This seminar continues the ATG tradition of saving you diagnostic time. We're in the 'wasted test prevention' business, and we hope you can attend!
