ATG's August 2018 Schedule of upcoming classes
… (ATG) has the following classes available for the month of August 2018. All classes run from 6:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. each night for both evenings, except where indicated below.
VEHICLE NETWORK DIAGNOSTIC STRATEGIES
Whether you're experiencing a no-communication fault, U-Codes, or systems that are not operating properly, you need a flexible diagnostic plan that can adapt to the nature of the fault and the available tools. Therefore, that's how we built this all-new Vehicle Network Diagnostic Strategies training manual and seminar.
Like all ATG products, this one tackles the 'High Level Indicators' first to quickly eliminate the most possible causes. This allows you to define the type of fault, determine the network configuration and expected test values to create the best diagnostic plan for the likely causes that remain. Only then do we cover specific network topology, known-good values, and specific Scan Tool and circuit test options, so you get the details precisely when you need them.
This seminar and manual were researched in the shop from actual network opens, shorts, Scan Tool faults and module faults, as well as a number of unexpected system and component interactions.

GENERAL MOTORS DRIVABILITY & CODE DIAGNOSTICS
This all-new General Motors training seminar is the latest installment in our Domestic Engine Performance series, with topics arranged to maximize diagnostic efficiency by starting every discussion with 'High Level Indicators'.
You can follow a 4-hour flowchart and fix 80% of the codes and drivability complaints, or you can practice the high level approach to narrow down possible cause lists and sort through what's left in a fraction of the time. Every year General Motors engine management systems become more complex while available system information and diagnostic instructions become more generalized.
This seminar and manual were researched in the shop, and not from published repair information. Using this method, we've developed repeatable GM diagnostics based on actual failure patterns and proven best practices.
*August 1st & 2nd - Woodbridge, NJ with Kris Lewis
*August 27th & 28th - Houston, TX with Rick Kelley
ADVANCED CIRCUIT & ELECTRICAL TESTING
This class is about using wiring diagrams as part of a larger strategy to increase testing accuracy and decrease testing time (and even the number of tests performed). We're combining wiring information with codes, symptoms, system interactions, Scan Tool PIDs & controls, and other observations.
Yes, technicians who struggle with reading diagrams will gain important new skills. But for advanced technicians, each minute spent executing well on the bullet points above saves 10 minutes of testing time, so this seminar offers a quick payback for your investment. We are confident that this seminar is exactly what you need to make you more successful during circuit diagnosis, long before you even grab your DVOM.
Beginners will win big, but even experienced technicians know that every new trick makes them better.
*August 6th & 7th - Fort Smith, AR with Wally Mouradian
FORD 6.0L, 6.4L & 6.7L POWERSTROKE ENGINE PERFORMANCE
Most available Powerstroke information is simply reprinted and rearranged OEM information mixed with some field research. While helpful, this strategy mostly repeats the linear diagnostic process found in all OEM information. Considering how much time it takes to diagnose and repair Powerstroke engines, this traditional linear approach could cost you hundreds in un-billable time.
That's why we've built this manual and training seminar -- to give you ways to peel in quickly to the actual fault without wasting time or guessing with expensive parts. Like our General Motors Duramax Training Manual, this Powerstroke product has been assembled using actual diagnosis & repair of a wide variety of engine management, emissions, and trouble code faults. We've included pictures, Scan Tool captures, Lab Scope waveforms and much more from simple tests to full teardowns.
This Powerstroke training is real-world, so it will focus diagnosis for experienced Powerstroke technicians, but is also indispensable for those who are just considering the Powerstroke as the next revenue stream.
*August 27th & 28th - N Charleston, SC with Wally Mouradian
Purchase now to reserve your seat 2 weeks before the seminar date to get the early bird pricing of $209 - after which the regular price is $249.

Have a great day!
Anyone that can take these classes should! We send 3-5 to every class they bring to Richmond and are never disappointed! The book is worth the price alone!
Thank you very much for your endorsement William! We are thrilled that you enjoy the classes!
anything planned up here in ontario? had a couple I attended years ago and it was well worth it.
Hi Timothy! Let me check and I will get right back to you. Thanks for the inquiry!
