Automated Driver Assistance Systems - Brief Description

This accredited training course is designed for workshop, body repair and windscreen technicians and other businesses who are involved with the repair and calibration of ADAS systems.

This training course is designed to ensure that the technician has the ability to calibrate Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). This training meets the requirements of the Insurance Industry that specify that all ADAS calibration and repair activities are completed by currently competent technicians

The course is designed to coach technicians to identify and correctly interpret information relating to vehicles and their ADAS features, so that they can determine the correct method of calibration is selected. The course will assess the technician’s ability to identify, locate and follow manufacturers recommended recalibration methods for a range of ADAS systems.
