ATG Schedule of Classes for: NOVEMBER 2018
Posted to Industry Events Forum on 10/24/2018 2 Replies

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



Whether you're experiencing a no-communication fault, U-Codes, or systems that are not operating properly, you need a flexible diagnostic plan that can adapt to the nature of the fault and the available tools. Therefore, that's how we built this all-new Vehicle Network Diagnostic Strategies training manual and seminar.

Like all ATG products, this one tackles the 'High Level Indicators' first to quickly eliminate the most possible causes. This allows you to define the type of fault, determine the network configuration and expected test values to create the best diagnostic plan for the likely causes that remain. Only then do we cover specific network topology, known-good values, and specific Scan Tool and circuit test options, so you get the details precisely when you need them.

This seminar and manual were researched in the shop from actual network opens, shorts, Scan Tool faults and module faults, as well as a number of unexpected system and component interactions.

This all-new General Motors training seminar is the latest installment in our Domestic Engine Performance series, with topics arranged to maximize diagnostic efficiency by starting every discussion with 'High Level Indicators'.

You can follow a 4-hour flowchart and fix 80% of the codes and drivability complaints, or you can practice the high level approach to narrow down possible cause lists and sort through what's left in a fraction of the time. Every year General Motors engine management systems become more complex while available system information and diagnostic instructions become more generalized.

This seminar and manual were researched in the shop, and not from published repair information. Using this method, we've developed repeatable GM diagnostics based on actual failure patterns and proven best practices.

* 11/28 & 11/29 Bangor, ME with Gary Machiros



ATG's new 6.7L Powerstroke seminar is the latest in our Domestic Diesel series, and continues the tradition of collecting best practices and diagnostics tips from high volume specialists around the nation. As always, we've combined this research with our 'High Level Indicator' philosophy to develop simple tests to rule out entire categories of faults, resulting in the shortest possible cause list and a plan for quickly eliminating what remains. This is effective in our gasoline engine seminars, but is even more important for diesels because most procedures require more disassembly, and incorrectly diagnosed faults cost a lot more.

* 11/05 & 11/06 Baton Rouge, LA with Wally Mouradian * 11/07 & 11/08 Metairie, LA with Wally Mouradian * 11/26 & 11/27 Bellingham, WA with Rick Kelley * 11/28 & 11/24 Seattle, WA with Rick Kelley
