Course Overview

Classes vary in length and include time in the classroom and hands-on trucks. While in the classroom, attendees become familiar with truck systems using a number of tools including detailed colored hydraulic schematics and electrical schematics. Each system is covered using a basic troubleshooting methodology that emphasizes a step-by-step approach and builds upon a solid understanding of hydraulic and electrical principles.

On the trucks, attendees complete hands-on assignments testing and adjusting hydraulic pressures for various systems and practicing calibration steps for electronic controls. Instructors challenge attendees to apply classroom lessons through the diagnosis and repair of increasingly complex problems.

Attendee’s progress is monitored carefully with assessing critical concepts and functions to ensure course objectives are met throughout the session.
