This class is taught by Eric Scharping. I have known Eric and have been taking his classes since the early days of my career. His teaching style is both informative and entertaining! Eric has been working on BMWs exclusively for most of his life and is currently doing tech support for Autologic. I don't think there is a single component on these vehicles that he has not been a part of diagnosing and repairing.
