OTC is partnering with its distributors to provide hands-on local training and simulations to technicians wanting to learn more about the latest J2534 reprogramming (reflash) and coding techniques.

Technicians are welcome to bring their own scan tool to the training forum. There will also be several OTC diagnostic tools available to use or try and even some "trade up" special offers for attendees.
"While reprogramming and reading service codes are different tasks, both provide opportunities to maximize shop revenue and save time on billable labor," says Ed Lipscomb, OTC Senior Product Manager, Diagnostic Systems.
The Forums are designed to help owners and technicians understand:
How J2534 affects the shop
How reprogramming differs from coding
OE reprogramming case studies and websites
What is a clean power supply and why use them for reprogramming
Proper reprogramming equipment
Replacement of ECM/PCM and other controller types
During May 15 through September 30, 2012, forum attendees receive a $250 cash card with the purchase of a qualifying Genisys EVO® software kit.
During the same time period, forum attendees, shop owners and technicians alike can trade in their old tool, purchase a new Genisys EVO® (1 of qualifying kit part numbers 3874, 3874TPR or 3874HD), and receive a J2534 Reprogramming Tool or a PC-based TechScope® - up to a $1,500 value.
Technicians interested in attending a local forum should contact their distributor for the location and schedule of the nearest session.
