Are you ready for autotechnician’s workshop takeover? We are counting down the days until we get together with readers and trainers once more at Autotech Live – our first official Workshop Takeover!

What is it? A full day of diagnostic troubleshooting side-by- side with a great bunch of technician trainers within Matt Cleevely’s impressive workshop

When? From 9.30 to 4.30 on Saturday 24th June

Where? Cleevely EV, Cheltenham GL51 8PS

What’s the format? Small groups of technician/workshop owners will rotate around three workshop bays, focussing on diesel, petrol and EV/hybrid faults. There are no presentations, just hands-on fault- finding with just- in-time learning thrown in by each guide trainer as and when required

How much will it cost me? Tickets are just £99+VAT

What! Why is it so cheap? Thanks to ACtronics, Alldata, Bosch Aftermarket and JLM Lubricants who support the campaign, we are able to offer cost-price tickets to ensure that everyone who is committed to upping their game can afford to do so.

Andy Crook of GotBoost will guide a team through diesel faults…
Andy will be challenging technicians to stick to the process while ensuring the business has the systems in place to benefit from diagnostics. If the business wants to be effective and the technician wants to be efficient, you need systems and processes. Andy will challenge you to diagnose the fault(s) efficiently and deal with the customer effectively. Are your systems and processes robust enough? Come and find out….

Gareth Davies of Euro Performance will help you tackle petrol vehicle issues…
“I’m delighted to be involved in another autotechnician event where we get to meet like-minded industry professionals. This year the format is heading back to its roots and I’m looking forward to setting a broken car task for technicians and business owners to get their teeth into. As a small group, we’ll look at the real-world faults that have been presented, with some added customer twists and turns for good measure, and use a variety of dealer and aftermarket tools in combination with shared knowledge and decision-making on how to attack the faults, from fault to fix. We’ll cover all the meat and potatoes of the technical task, with opportunities for questions and pitstops for learning and development throughout the task. Above all we’ll have some fun while learning about the serious business of troubleshooting faults within the workshop. I look forward to seeing you all there!”

Matt says delegates will learn how to gain confidence repairing and diagnosing High Voltage circuits. Get a good understanding of what is required from a HV ready workshop and be inspired by working on EV’s within the busiest EV specialist workshop in the country.

Eliot will be tackling charging faults, so you can confidently attain whether you’re facing a faulty charger, charge lead or vehicle system. Learn how to diagnose common, and not so common, EV faults and get ahead of your competition.
