Join us for our Big Day Out in October

By autotech-nath on July 21, 2019

James Dillon and David Wagstaff of Technical Topics will join forces with Andy Crook of GotBoost once more for a unique, audience-led diagnostics training event later this year. 

On Saturday 5th October, Autotechnician will take over the ZF [pro]Tech Technical Training facility in Crick and our team of experts will provide delegates with thought-provoking nuggets of information, engage their fault-finding skills and challenge learnt behaviours when it comes to diagnosing underlying problems. Learn the tips and tricks to get to the heart of a problem more quickly and gain confidence in achieving that first-time fix. 

The training will focus around a vehicle that has various live faults and symptoms – the trainers will work with the technicians to choose the best course of action and guide them through best practice techniques. Depending on how the day progresses, and delegates’ collective experience, we expect that around two thirds of the training content will be related to the technical aspects of fault-finding and one third concentrating on the business side, such as customer communication and charging for diagnostics. 

The day will run between 9am and 4.30pm, with breaks for refreshments and lunch. Delegates will vote on courses of action and the trainers will help analyse the results from the chosen tests and provide refreshers on theory where needed.

Previous garage owners and technicians have enjoyed the unique format of this training and come back for more! Weddings, christenings and bar mitzvahs allowing of course. We hope you can join us this autumn for an entertaining and rewarding day.


Our next Big Day Out will take place on Saturday 5th October in Crick, Northamptonshire.

Tickets are subsidised by our Autotech 2019 sponsors and are available now for £98+VAT.
