March 7, 2017—I-CAR will debut its "Vehicle Technology Trends and Diagnostics Overview (VT117L01)" on Saturday, March 18 at the 40th annual NORTHEAST Automotive Services Show, taking place March 17-19 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus.
The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) is hosing the show, while I-CAR’s Peter Fryzel and Michael Bonsanto will lead the class.
"Vehicle Technology Trends and Diagnostics Overview" begins with the first module, which highlights new vehicle features, technologies and repair options being introduced by the world auto makers. Part two is an activity-filled group of modules that introduce an overview of diagnostics, scan tools, pre-and post-scans, calibrations and the importance of continued training and education.
“'Vehicle Technology Trends and Diagnostics Overview' is the latest live delivery of the organization’s popular new series, which annually takes a look at vehicle technology and trends,” said Armin Price, I-CAR manager of business development. “This course not only covers features and collision repair procedures for several 2017 models both foreign and domestic, but also includes information on automotive collision diagnostics and scan tools. Students will learn about the increasing importance of performing diagnostic scans and the differences between certain electrical troubleshooting tools. The various options a shop has when it comes to ensuring diagnostics are completed are discussed.”
Also on March 18, I-CAR will be presenting a free "I-CAR Certification & Technical Hour" in the NORTHEAST Demo area. This is an hour-filled Q&A demonstration session with important information on what I-CAR certifications are, and how I-CAR performs hands-on in-shop certifications.
