Other training courses.  Most of the automotive training industry is run by people who sell automotive diagnostic equipment.  They also sell training on how to use their products.  Companies like Pico who sell very good equipment and offer very good training courses on how to use it.  We offer a different option, our main business is the testing and repair of automotive control units.  We understand how the systems fitted to cars work and how to test them.  Our training is focused on system fault finding not expensive diagnostic equipment.  So if you have any other training needs relating to automotive electronics not listed above.  We would be happy to talk about them....

In 2013 I went to Afganistan to teach digital communications engineers how to field repair diesel generators.  Afganistan has the biggest growth of mobile phone infrastructure in the world.
