ATG Additional classes for June 2018
Posted to Industry Events Forum on 5/14/2018 6 Replies

Greetings, everyone!

The Automotive Training Group (ATG) has the following classes available for the month of June 2018. All classes run from 6:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. each night for both evenings, except if indicated below.



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.

Yes, technicians who struggle with reading diagrams will gain important new skills. But for advanced technicians, each minute spent executing well on the bullet points above saves 10 minutes of testing time, so this seminar offers a quick payback for your investment. We are confident that this seminar is exactly what you need to make you more successful during circuit diagnosis, long before you even grab your DVOM.

Beginners will win big, but even experienced technicians know that every new trick makes them better.

*June 27th & 28th - San Diego, CA with Dean Parsons



This all-new Scan Tool seminar was built using a completely different approach--to show the best PIDs, controls and other Scan Tool functions to use for each diagnosis. We have re-invented Scan Tool training because button-pushing and menu navigation does not make you more successful. Rather, success comes when you know your Scan Tool so well that you can set the flowchart aside and 'make up' your own diagnostic path. Not only is this path more accurate--it's quite a bit shorter than the flowchart.

*June 6th & 7th - Salt Lake City, UT with Rick Kelley

*June 11th & 12th - Davie, FL with Wally Mouradian



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!

*June 11th & 12th - Queens, NY with Kris Lewis



Most available Powerstroke information is simply reprinted and rearranged OEM information mixed with some field research. While helpful, this strategy mostly repeats the linear diagnostic process found in all OEM information.

Considering how much time it takes to diagnose and repair Powerstroke engines, this traditional linear approach could cost you hundreds in un-billable time.

That is why we've built this manual and training seminar -- to give you ways to peel in quickly to the actual fault without wasting time or guessing with expensive parts. Like our General Motors Duramax Training Manual, this Powerstroke product has been assembled using actual diagnosis & repair of a wide variety of engine management, emissions, and trouble code faults. We've included pictures, Scan Tool captures, Lab Scope waveforms and much more from simple tests to full teardowns.

*June 4th & 5th - Rochester, NY with Kris Lewis
