What have you not known until now, which will advance your operation? Can you recognize the signals and conclude what and how is to be measured in order to perform the required diagnostics, using an electric schematic diagram of a component? Do you know how to measure and diagnose a PWM signal?

Theoretical part (30% of the training)

Basic electrical values

Voltage, resistance and current measurement

Relationships in electrical circuits, the Ohm law, calculation and measurement of the power of devices

Proper use of different measuring devices (unimer, test indicator, oscilloscope...)

Series, parallel and combined electrical circuits

Role and physical principles of component operation in electrical circuits and

Knowledge and diagnostics of different electrical/ electronic components.


Practical part (70% of the training)

Characteristic electrical circuits for different components and systems in vehicles such as ventilator drive, rear light group, starter, horn, direction indicator lights etc.

Electrical circuit construction, measurement and troubleshooting (diagnostics)

Potentiometers, diodes, relays, switches, resistors etc.

Exercise and diagnostics

Analog, digital, PWM and Duty Cycle signals

Diagnostics of different electrical components using electrical measurements

Finding, reading and interpreting electrical schematic diagrams and

Proper use of electrical schematic diagrams and their use in diagnostic procedures.

Why is this important?

It has become impossible to perform diagnostics or troubleshooting of any system, component or element in modern vehicles without good knowledge of auto-electrics.

Practically all systems in vehicles are managed, controlled and/or supervised by electric and electronic components, so that a proper troubleshooting diagnostics process must begin with system analysis, finding and interpreting electric schematic diagrams to be followed also by measuring electric values.

What is the training like?

The Basic Electrics training has been conceived so as to offer practical knowlegde to both beginners and more experienced servicers, required for successful diagnostics and troubleshooting of electronic systems, as well as of systems which are dependent on other electrical and electronic elements. Knowledge of automotive electrics is the basis for any serious troubleshooting and diagnostics, regardless of the systems for which servicers are specialized or in charge of.

How will you become better in your work after these training sessions?

After the completed training, attendants are expected to be able to independently perform required measurements using different measuring devices, to read and understand electric schematic diagrams and to resolve most of the electric problems in vehicles implementing an analytical approach.
