Learn & win with Nissens

By autotech-nic on June 14, 2021

Win one of three smart wireless service tools for effective AC system troubleshooting, worth £60 to £235!

The Nissens Training Concept (NTC) is an online platform to provide independent workshops with access to a wealth of technical knowledge relating to replacement components and systems, such as air conditioning (AC). Within the resource, technicians will find practical information, installation advice and important facts relevant to their day-to-day business.

The NTC offers technicians various ways to acquire this knowledge, including via self-learning modules, which are courses on specific topics relating to a given system or component, that combine important information such as technical data and installation advice, with detailed graphics, photos and videos and, with the help of a background speaker, to effectively convey their content.

Nissens says the technical knowledge offered by NTC courses can be very useful to technicians, even if they are already an expert in a given field with many years of experience.

All NTC material, including training modules and webinars, is operated via a web browser, so navigating through the course content is intuitive and involves using just a few simple buttons. The training can be started at any time and place, and from any type of device, including a smartphone, although for the best user experience, it is recommended to use a tablet or computer.

How to start
Technicians will need to register once as a user, entering both their and the company’s name, as this will be stated on the certificates, which are issued on completion of the modules. After the first login, they will see the user panel. Depending on the level of access granted, the main categories will display the contents available, such as training modules or planned webinars.

Example module: AC compressor, Installation and diagnostics, Level 3, Expert
Being a detailed instruction on how to properly replace the AC compressor, this is one of the most important modules in the field of AC training, intended for advanced users who deal with the system’s service and maintenance.
The course begins with a thorough diagnosis of the entire system, which enables the operator to determine and eliminate potential causes of the originally installed compressor’s failure. Such an approach helps to understand the importance of the system dependencies, and the potential impact of other systems that may affect the AC system and the compressor’s operation. Good examples are the impact of faults within the vehicle’s electrical system or improper use of consumables, such as UV dye or flushing agents. The module consists of seven steps and lasts approximately 30 minutes.

The learning module ends with a short summary test that checks whether the user has acquired the most important information. Correct answers, with a specified minimum score, allow the course attendee to download and print an official Nissens training certificate.
