Overview

The Automotive Electrical Refresher course is designed to give students a foundational knowledge of electrical automotive systems. This course is built for automotive technicians looking to improve or refresh their existing electrical knowledge. Students will learn not only how to diagnose and repair electrical automotive parts, but also how to communicate with customers and maintain a good relationship throughout the process.

When it comes to automotive repair, electronics are one of the most difficult areas to diagnose and service. There are many key concepts and important systems that mechanics often misunderstand, and this course addresses those areas. The number of electrical components in a vehicle is continuing to increase as automotive technology continues to advance. Automotive technicians with electronic and technical diagnostic capabilities are in high demand, and the demand for these skills will only increase in the future.

The course runs for 5 weeks and covers the fundamental topics that automotive professionals working with electricity need to know.

Course Prerequisites

None. However, this course is best suited for students with prior professional automotive repair experience.
