Electronics & Software Boot Camp - Why You Should Say YES!

Dr. from Port Angeles Engineer Posted   Latest   Edited  

The automotive service and diagnostic industry is experiencing a head-on collision with the convergence of Vehicle Electrification, ADAS/Autonomous systems that are riddled with advanced software systems to control components. Mastering electronic devices, circuits and writing & coding software that controls these systems is essential to understanding how to build a deeper diagnostic skill set. Why not update or enhance your skills to master this convergence. Join in Las Vegas in March 2019 for our Electronics and Software Boot Camp.

Are there any plans for this course in other locations?

Hi Chris:

We are planning for this course to be held only in two locations: Portland, OR (Portland Comm College) and Las Vegas. There are no plans to hold the course in other locations. We chose Las Vegas for its classification as a "destination location", the associated low travel costs for those attending, and a geographic location that mitigates weather issues (ice, snow, tornadoes, thunderstorms, etc.). Therefore, we can have classes there almost any time of the year. Also, this was the location requested by most individuals that were surveyed.

I'm sure this isn't the news you were hoping but, from a business perspective (for us and those attending), it's the model we're using.

We hope to see you in the class in the future. Our plans are to have a total of 3 levels for this class so, we'll see how things work out for this first level.

Best Regards,

Mark

I am a long way away. However I can see the need to be ahead of the curve with this so If i can grasp some of your online training you provide, I will be flying from Australia to attend the November boot camp. Looks very interesting. Thanks.

Chad:

Glad to hear you're going to attend! We'll have a great time!

Getting ahead of the curve is a prudent move and will serve you well. If you haven't been to the site, here is the link/address to the OnDemand Training: access-ondemand​.​com

Also, I reviewed the schedule for the Electronics and Software Boot Camp and we don't have a November date. We have a March 4-8, 2019 (Las Vegas) and July 15-19, 2019 (Portland, OR). Here is the link/address: futuretechauto​.​com/store/p77/swbo…

If you're interested in things to do, the Las Vegas class would be the venue. It's a great destination location if you want to plan a mini-vacation while in the U.S. The Hoover Dam tour, Ethel M. Chocolate Factory, Red Rock Canyon, Zip Lining on Fremont Street, The Bellagio Conversatory/Botanical Garden....and its beautiful fountain, Dolphins at the Mirage, Tournment of Kings at the Excalibur, The Atomic Testing Museum, and many other things to do if you want to add a couple of days on to your training trip.

Looking forward to working with you!

Yes sorry, it was the December 2-6 dates in Las Vegas with the venue to be decided. Will this still be happening?

Hi Chad:

The December 2-6, 2019 is one year from now and will not know if it will be running for at least another 8 months. The March 4-8, 2019 class is running for sure.

Hope this helps.

This is what is missing .. training on this topic without having to go to a university for electronic engineering.

Hi Adrean:

This was out intent: offer technicians a "short course" process to gaining additional electronic and software skills without requiring long college/university courses. We understand that technicians are pressed for time and training dollars are limited so, we compressed the topics in this course into what is absolutely necessary to permit technicians to have flexible skills (i.e., apply creative solutions to electrical or control system problems).

Hope to see you in a future class.
