Subjects to be covered include: How diesels work; The history of the diesel engine; Safety issues; The advantages of diesel over petrol; The VW Pump Duse System; Common rail and its benefits and ‘Real world vehicle case studies’.
The fourth seminar has the working title of ‘CANbus’. The content of this seminar includes: An introduction to vehicle networking; How CANbus works; What happens if it fails; Vehicle applications; Testing the vehicle layer plus ‘A look to the future’.
“In the fast moving world of vehicle diagnostics, as our first TechEd seminar has proved, time is precious, and keeping up to date with diagnostic techniques and technology can be difficult for the modern technician,” explains Helen Taylor, UK Marketing Manager for Snap-on Diagnostics. “At Snap-on we have always been committed to providing the best quality products, information and training for the modern technician and these third and fourth in the series of seminars has been specifically based upon input gathered from attendees at earlier TechEd Seminars.”
