Hunter Engineering has opened “Hunter University” as a free online self-study program for technicians and industry professionals.
The site is designed to enhance training in alignment fundamentals, performance tire service and road force balancing techniques.
The eLearning courses allow people to learn at their own pace and are designed for students at all levels. The company says its courses can also be used as an integral supplement to instructor-led training courses. In-depth information, detailed graphics, video and modular segments assist the participant in expanding their knowledge base at a self-determined level.
Three courses are available:
* Introduction to Vehicle Alignment
* Rolling Smooth
* Heavy-Duty Truck and Trailer Alignment
Hunter University is also described as a helpful educational tool for service advisors and apprentice technicians. Each course is divided into modules and students can exit and re-enter at the same point in the module if using the same computer. Hunter does not monitor any aspect of these training programs and cannot check scores.
According to Doug Felt, technical training manager at Hunter Engineering, “This educational tool is an easy and effective method of helping technicians and service advisors understand the process of wheel alignment and the benefits associated with the process.”
