Reflash Seminar to be Held in Kelowna, B.C.

Okanagan College is holding a two-day seminar on the advantages reflash training can bring to an independent garage, as well as the technical training on reflashing itself. It is set to take place on October 17 to the 18 in the automotive trades wing of their campus in Kelowna, B.C. The three classes include “What is the OE tooling advantage? The Reasons for Reflash” (Ford), “Tech 2 and the OTC Genysis”, and “Chrysler Tooling and Web site Navigation”.

In “What is the OE tooling advantage?” attendees will learn such topics as:
• A review of systems that are now electronically controlled. 
• A lack of information on systems that are not engine or transmission related.
• System integration of electronic components that impact seemingly unrelated functions (i.e. a fault in the transfer case can cause a wiper issue).

In “Tech 2 and the OTC Genysis” attendees will look at the diagnostic capabilities of the GM Tech 2 along with the Candi Module. Participants will also look at how OTC has overcome using Tech 2 over other aftermarket scan tools. The seminar will also highlight the obstacles of the manufactures requirement for a factory scan tool when dealing with networks and how we can overcome this with aftermarket scan tools.

In “Chrysler Tooling and Web site Navigation”, participants will receive unbiased and practical understanding of Chrysler’s DRB3 and Star Mobil factory hardware and lead attendees through the process of diagnosis, presenting recommendations to the customer and navigation of the web site for the reflash.

The full two-day course is $395 per person. If you are enrolling additional techs from the same shop it will be $275 ea. For CIAA member shops additional techs from the same shop are $175 ea. For more information contact Art Wilderman at  or phone (403) 225-9578.
