Autotechnician created Autotech four years ago to help our readers assess their knowledge and practical skills in diagnosing issues on various systems, through multiple choice assessments and online case studies. By providing free online assessments, along with completed score sheets and supporting training material, we hope to support technicians facing the many technical challenges involved in automotive repair today.
Alongside the online benchmarking tools, we have hosted a Spring and Autumn Big Day Out training event each year, where delegates can work through live faults with the guidance of our talented trainers. These sessions have provided expert advice on tricky faults and passed on time-saving techniques to promote a first time-fix to hundreds of proactive technicians across the UK. They have also been an enjoyable day out of the workshop and a fantastic opportunity to chat with like-minded people and gain valuable contacts in the trade.
NEW FOR 2020
In 2020, we will again host a diagnostic training event in Spring, around the Midlands area, which will run in its current format. Live faults will be detangled throughout the Saturday session and our Big Day Out trainers will provide mini presentations on the theory that underpins the practical techniques, topped off with a little business advice.
Next year, we are planning to evolve our Autumn Big Day Out into a two-day event, taking place on a Friday and Saturday. More intensive training will be delivered on the first day and will be followed by an informal dinner & drinks reception, so technicians can swap notes and catch up with the support network. Saturday’s schedule will be more relaxed and hands-on, with mini-workshops, demonstrations and competitive feature areas.
We will be designing the content for these sessions around the needs of delegates, so please register your interest by emailing Nicola@autotechnician.co.uk. As ever, tickets will be subsidised by Autotech sponsors, so you can expect high-value training for a very reasonable investment.
Seven online tests are available on the Autotechnician website – have you attempted them all?
