“Electrics 1” Technical Training Course Update

30 November 2015

We recently announced the first technical training course in a suite of three called “Electrics 1 - Multimeter”. Demand for the course has been incredibly high, so to avoid missing out call the IGA member helpline now on 0845 305 4230.

About The Course

The focus for this training is to develop a greater understanding of how to efficiently and accurately use the basic functions of a modern multi-meter in motor vehicle applications. Using a blend of theory, electrical component examples and on vehicle testing, a useful and interesting insight into using a multi-meter as an electrical and diagnostic test aid will be gained. The course will act as a gateway to more advanced diagnostic techniques.

Completing the full suite courses is also one of the qualifiers for IGA Diagnostic Specialist status.

Training is provided on-site in a 2.5 hour morning or afternoon session.

Participants will Learn About

Multi-meter functions

This will take the Technician through the basic functions of the multi-meter including operation and calibration.

Voltage (AC & DC), Current and Resistance

Designed to develop a greater understanding of Voltage, Current and Resistance as found in electrical circuits and components.

Electrical Testing

Using a mixture of components and on vehicle examples, the technicians will have the opportunity to put into practice some of the skills developed above.

Electrical Fault Finding

Using a mixture of components and on vehicle examples, the technicians will have the opportunity to put into practice some of the skills developed above.

Discovery Learning

If time permits, a portion of time may be allocated to provide the technicians with the opportunity to focus on other aspects of vehicle electrics.

Once again, make sure you book your place through the member helpline on 0845 305 4230 and look out for information on the next course in the suite soon.
