This class featuring Motor Age Training Instructor Brandon Steckler capitalizes on the technicians’ ability to incorporate basic testing techniques with modern diagnostic tooling and combine it with
available service information to solve seemingly difficult dilemmas. All with ease and efficiency, regardless of the vehicle type. The essence of the class is built around the idea that ANYTHING can be diagnosed if adequate service information is present, including a thorough understanding of one’s diagnostic tooling (and the tools’ limitations), as well as an understanding of the physics common to all vehicle systems/components.
