Snap-on Diagnostics

ASE L1, WISETECH, and other drivability certifications help technicians interpret vehicle data, but before this a technician has to retrieve the data from a Scanner or Lab Scope.  More quickly navigating the Scanner and Scope, while utilizing time saving diagnostic features, such as PID Triggers, Troubleshooter, and Mode 6, can increase your productivity and profits.

Gateway Technical College offers certification training for all Snap-on diagnostic tools, so technicians know and can efficiently use 90%+ of the available features and benefits.  After successful completion of the course technicians can become a Snap-on Certified Diagnostician. These technicians know how to utilize today’s online information and integrate this knowledge into their diagnostic strategy. This starts with gathering information using the scanner and then moves to finding OEM information and professional tips, from other technicians, in ShopKey5. Combine this with the information found in the Fast-Track Troubleshooter and Component Test Meter, the technician can confidently verify which components are faulty.  This decision can be further substantiated by using the Ask-A-Tech website to check for actual verified repairs from the field. Are you this confident in every diagnostic decision or repair?  You can be!  Let Gateway Technical College show you how. 

Feel free to bring your own diagnostic tool to the training, or Gateway will supply a diagnostic tool for you to use during the class.  This is a hands-on course with each student using the tool and its features.  Learn by doing!
