Thanks in advance!

I don't know of any courses specifically on diagnostics but there are some youtube channels with some very good diagnostic content. Go to youtube and search for "South Main Auto" "Scanner Danner" and "New Level Auto" There are others but those 3 are a good start and then from there you'll find links to other good channels.

Aviondemand.com, ScannerDanner Premium, MotorAge Training are a few paid sites that offer good content. Youtube some good stuff but lacks in comparison to a paid site. Also Aeswave has a lot of training books for sale.

Hi Howard, I am a man who wears many hats. I am a working technician, business owner and automotive technical trainer. I own and operate a mobile diagnostics and programming company, in addition to training. 2 of the training companies I work for are Automotive Seminars and The Driveability Guys, both who specialize in almost exclusively in automotive diagnostics.

Carquest has online courses with simulations that you can "Diagnose as well as replace parts" with if you shop AAP or Carquest via ctionline​.​com under what is currently called TACS. You will probably need to sign up through their Commercial Account Manager.

Thanks for the shout out Cliff! FYI... You can access the CTI schedule for your area at ctionline.com at no cost. Accessing online or instructor led classes is easy. Contact your local CARQUEST or Advance Auto Parts Commercial Account Manager -or- …. We have a great administrative team who can point you in the right direction.

Howard, If you are looking for some hands on, where you can talk about what you are doing, how you are doing it and why you are doing it, over the July 4th weekend, come to my house. For the last 16 years, my wife and I have hosted what we call, the July 4th iATN campout. Here you can sit and chat about things like you are asking, then go up to the shop and play out your thoughts on a vehicle…

Hi Howard, I really like the ATG classes. They give you good information and leave you with a 2" thick reference manual. It is nice to be able to review the information in the book years after you take the class.
