Delmar, part of Cengage Learning, has announced the availability of Fuels, Emissions and Exhaust, a new electronic training course in the Professional Automotive Technician Training Series. The course is available now as a web-based training course and will be available at a later date as a computer-based course. Fuels, Emissions and Exhaust covers a wide variety of topics, beginning with safe work practices and advancing to more complex topics such as fuel pumps and line service, alternative fuel systems, fuel-injection systems, emission system diagnostics and level two onboard diagnostics (OBD II). Through this course, technicians receive more than 8.5 hours of quality instruction, completed at their own pace via the format of their choice – online or CD-ROM. Periodic process checks and end-of-section review questions ensure users are understanding and retaining information as they work through the material. A comprehensive exam is conducted after the user completes all sections of the course, and those who achieve a score of 80% or higher are awarded a printable certificate of completion.
The Professional Automotive Technician Training Series combines theory, diagnosis and repair information into one easy-to-use training tool, and provides technicians with an interactive solution that improves efficiency and increases comprehension. Animations and interactive elements are used to explain complex processes and help technicians engage with the course content. In addition, at the enterprise level, customized courses can be created to meet the unique training needs of an organization’s staff. The courses in the Professional Technician Training Series, which also include the Professional Truck Technician Training Series, were designed to follow both the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) content guidelines, guaranteeing quality education that meets industry standards. In addition, the courses are Aviation Industry CBT (Computer-Based Training) Committee (AICC) and Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) compliant, ensuring they meet recognized standards for web-based e-learning. “The automotive industry, like many areas, is still recovering from difficult economic times. Automotive repair companies are looking to improve their customer satisfaction by ensuring they have highly-trained, certified individuals on staff who can get the job done right the first time,” said Kristen Davis, director of Professional Transportation Industry Solutions, delmar. “Courses in the Professional Automotive Technician Training Series follow the ASE task guidelines, and are a great first step toward mastering the skills necessary for ASE certification.”
