On course for fault skills

Oscilloscope training from Pico Technology

Published:  18 June, 2010

Pico Technology has announced more training dates to help repairers get the latest knowledge of scope-based fault-finding. The Pico courses are designed to take the fear out of oscilloscope diagnostics, guiding delegates through from the basic understanding of a scope, to the software interface and kit contents and then into the workshop to see the scope in action.

The course is spread over two days with a mixture of both electrical and engine management theory as well as workshop hands-on practical testing. The content is aimed at all user levels from the absolute beginner through to the experienced technician. Pico says its trainers have a wealth of experience in automotive diagnostics who will give you the confidence to use your oscilloscope to diagnose any faults that turn up in your workshop.

The courses take place at venues around the UK and take place on the following dates: Birmingham City College, 15th to 16th June; Accrington & Rossendale College, 6th to 7th July; Mexborough, 24th to 25th August; Cambridge Regional College, dates TBC; Motherwell College, 12th to 13th October; Brooklands College, London, 26th to 27th October; City of Bristol College, 30th November to 1st December. "At an affordable price, our courses are a valuable investment in your skills and your workshop," said a Pico spokesman.
