Once again, Autotechnician magazine will be hosting a training event for independent workshop owners and technicians, delivering in-depth fault-finding advice from our diagnostic experts.
The first of our Big Days Out in 2018 will take place at Reading College from 9.00am until 4.30pm on Saturday 30th June. Ticket numbers are limited, order your ticket now by calling 01634 924 406, alternatively, email email@example.com.
We are very pleased to have James Dillon and Andy Crook – two of the most knowledgeable and entertaining trainers around – delivering training sessions at the first Big Day Out of 2018. James of Technical Topics is rather pleased too and looks forward to helping independent technicians finely tune their approach to diagnostics. James has this to say:
“The landscape of vehicle diagnostics is ever-changing. As vehicle technology continues to advance, support and information from the vehicle manufacturers is critical. OEM diagnostic tools, factory manuals and service data and security system logins make life easier, but we must remember to retain the ability to critically evaluate everything and not to become a diagnostic automaton.”
James will cover the current landscape and how best to set your workshop up with tools, equipment, support and processes to prosper from diagnostic work. He will also review the near-future and discuss factors that will affect both technicians and garage owners in the short term. This dynamic and thought-provoking session will offer practical help and advice to assist you in forming a future- suited operational plan for your own specific situation.”
For this year’s Big Day Out in June, Andy Crook of GotBoost will be expanding his research into the psychology of diagnostics and looking to explain why it is difficult to get it right every time. Andy will use real-world case studies to illustrate the pitfalls and how we are preconditioned to fall into the mind’s traps unless we condition ourselves not too.
As always, he will try and entertain as well as inform, so be prepared for a fast-moving, self-critical look at the ever-changing world of automotive diagnostic testing! Our trainers and sponsors will be on-hand throughout the day to answer any questions delegates have.
The event will be held at Reading College, Kings Road, Reading RG1 4HJ from 9.00am until 4.30pm on Saturday 30th June. Go to www.autotechnician. co.uk and facebook.com/autotechmagazine for more information. Reserve your ticket by calling 01634 924 406 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
