Clinic Length: Approx. 3 hours This seminar enhances the skills of the professional undercar technician in the area of advanced wheel alignment. It covers suspension and steering diagnosis due to bent parts from accidents and road hazards, vehicle modifications, tire/wheel resizing and height issues. A review of basic alignment angles followed by thorough explanation of steering axis inclination (SAI), included angle (IA), scrub radius and toe out on turns (TOOT) will assist the alignment technician in utilizing the aligner as a diagnostic tool. Related electronic systems are also covered in this course. Vehicle component inspection and customer communication skills are necessary traits for any successful alignment tech and the importance of these skills are stressed in this class.   After completing this seminar, the student will have the knowledge to: Utilize the alignment machine as a diagnostic tool for the alignment and repair of vehicles involved in road hazard incidents and vehicle collisions Identify root causes for uneven or erratic tire wear and handling problems. Effectively communicate the results to the vehicle owner. Identify how vehicle modifications and tire/wheel changes affect alignment and dynamic operation Analyze related electronic systems that interact with the chassis system in need of recalibration or adjustment after the alignment procedure Read More

This eLearning course examines general characteristics of hybrid vehicles, characteristics and modes of operation of parallel, and series/parallel hybrid vehicles, and applications that use hybrid technology. Power electric concepts will be discussed. Idle stop, regenerative braking, motor assist and Engine-Off Drive (EV Mode) strategies are reviewed. Read More
