Master Tech Development
Our Master Technician Certified program offers technicians a development route to becoming a highly qualified top-tier technician.
It is aimed at senior technicians who would like a defined, structured route of education, training with the top level accredited qualification outcome.
The Master Technician program is suited to technicians operating in the motor industry at a minimum of level 3 with at least 5 years post qualification experience.
Structured Course Schedule
We offer a payment plan for this program to ensure your training budget delivers the very best value for money.
The Master Technician program can be completed in 12 months with courses running at 6 week intervals (click Date & Costs button below for course dates).
The course plan is agreed at the beginning of the program and the technical topics team will work with you during the program to ensure your success in achieving the top-tier technical status of Accredited Master Technician.
Successful completion of the program and assessment will result in the award of the accredited Master Technician award and your entry on to the IMI’s Professional Register.
Your professional status of Master Technician is the pinnicle of technical achievement and is recognised throughout the motor industry.
Electronics are at the heart of the vast majority of automotive control systems, from Adaptive Cruise Control to Vehicle Networks. This highly engaging training course will take you through the both the key components and the principles involved in managing and controlling a wide range of systems.
You will get hand on with transistors, resistors, integrated circuits, mosfets, logic boards, single circuit control microprocessors, flashing and programming, coding, brushless DC motors, AC controllers, IGBT’s and a whole load more. All of these things will be directly relateable to the advanced diagnosis of automotive systems.
You will develop sensor simulators, actuator controllers, logic flow control, input/output/logic loops in addition to a bunch of other very useful things.
The oscilloscope is at the heart of the Master Technicians diagnostic tool set. The ‘scope will enable rapid and accurate diagnosis of the system under investigation, be that a Flexray Network or a Microwave Distance Sensor.
This course will make the difference between diagnosing faults and not! This highly practical course will take you through our unique approach to fault finding a wide range of systems, such as Common Rail Diesel, Petrol Engine Management, Ignition Systems, CAN Bus (testing overview) and a vast array of other vehicle components. We will build your skills, knowledge and experience to an advanced user level.
Everything we cover on this course has a direct link to the practical aspect of diagnosing and fixing vehicles. You’ll get hands on with a wide range of vehicle systems, components as well as the latest scope and associated measurement devices (such as pressure transducers, current clamps and analytical software).
The course will supercharge your diagnosis & fault finding skills.
Networks & Body
Vehicle networking & body systems include communication technologies such as single wire LIN, sensors with SENT protocol, CAN Bus, FlexRay, MOST and others.
The modern master technician has to have an in-depth understanding of these technologies and how they are critical to the function of the modern joined-up motor vehicle and the various control systems.
Test, measurement and diagnosis forms a large part of this course. Hands-on with scope, scan tool and multimeters will see you testing a wide variety of systems and components.
OEM Diagnostics & Passthru
With the continual advance of vehicle technology ‘dealer level’ diagnostics is fast becoming a necessity in the modern workshop. Coding, programming, known faults, configuration, wiring diagrams and component locations are critical success factors.
This course looks into several dealer tools, their compatriate dealer portals as well as the options that Pass Thru present.
ADAS & Autonomous Technology
The self-driving vehicle is almost upon us. The systems required to facilitate self-driving are in many vehicles now. Understanding these systems in isolation and then dealing with them as a joined-up, autonomus vehicle is the aim of this course. ADAS, Side Assistance, Lane Assist, Brake By Wire, Steer By Wire, V2V, V2x and much more besides are covered on this session.
EV Level 4
This Electric Vehicle course goes much, much deeper than Level 3 and examines diagnosis and repair, including working on live systems.
Subjects covered incude: Motor/Generator, IGBT, PWM, Faults affecting, milliohm and megger testing, resolvers, DC-t0-DC conversion, LV and HV systems interrelationships, Scan Tool & Scope Diagnostic Techniques, Connecting to the ‘grid’, charge systems function & operation, HV battery function, operation, diagnosis & repair.
Our EV Level 4 Advanced course will take existing L3 qualification holders to the pinnicle of EV qualifications & understanding, resulting in a Level 4 qualification and an greatly expanded understanding of EV technology. A 3 day, hands-on course with in course assessments.
Customer Relations & Business Marketing
This module covers technical services, customer relationships, marketing your services and the critical relationship between front-of-house, workshop and the customer.
An expanded unserstanding of this interdependent relationship, from a customers perspective, will help your garage be the best they can be.
It will help you develop a sound propisition and ensure you get paid for what you do, ensuring that you get the best possible return on your investment of the Master Technician Programme.
Master Tech Prep
A critical part of obtaining your Master Technician Accreditation is the formal assessments, and in order to succeed, we will ensure that you are thoroughly prepared.
We will coach you throughout the programme on how to be at your best during the assessment process.
Our methods are extremely successful and enable our first time pass rate to be at highest level possible.
We’ll have worked throughout the entire program to develop our skills, knowledge and understanding.
There are six assessment tasks, 5 practical and and online ‘quiz’. You will have been highly coached and fully prepared to tackle the tasks.
Tasks include customer liaison, technical diagnosis x 3, apprentice coaching and the quiz.
Due to the comprehensive nature of our courses and preparation, we have a very (read very, very) high first time pass rate.
Upon successful completion of this session you will join the very exclusive Master Technician ‘club’, and all of the hard work and effort will have been worth it.
