Automotive Online Training Shop

Satisfaction guaranteed

Great, you’ve arrived to the Prodiags Online Training Shop
If you’re looking for traditional automotive books or just “how-to” videos you’re in the wrong place.

Our Training Modules are developed by top-tier mechanics and automotive instructors, who have realised that skills do not develop by observing others work or watching videos. Successful automotive training matches the mechanics’ practical needs, does not slip off-topic, gives examples from actual problems, and best of all, motivates you to use your brain. The same recipe is the backbone of the Prodiags Training Modules — without traveling or fixed time schedules.

The storytelling in the Training Module is groundbreaking and the studies are visually intelligent. The animations make complicated things simple to understand, the pictures give a contact point to the automotive technology and real work, videos serve as examples when needed, and texts elevate your imagination. Thanks to our customers, the modules also include a printable study material, which guides you as a “virtual teacher”. It’s practically applied tasks are based on real work experience.

Whenever you think you master the subject, you can challenge yourself with the assessments. Warning, without studying you will probably not pass them — but you can always try.

As a proof of your knowledge, to you and to others, you can print out a certificate after passing the final exam.

  • 12 month licence to the purchased products — without monthly subscriptions.

Checking the function and operational preconditions of an electrical component is applying electrical engineering knowledge at its finest. In addition to electrical engineering you should be able to “read” electrical circuit diagrams and perform measurements with the correct equipment. Being successful in the troubleshooting requires, amongst other things, proper use and understanding of the oscilloscope.

  • Electrical Circuit Diagrams and Markings
  • Oscilloscope Operating Principle and Connections
  • Settings, Accuracy and Measuring Probes
  • Electrical Operational Preconditions of a Component
  • Checking the Operational Preconditions
  • Short Circuit Troubleshooting
  • Battery Discharge Current Troubleshooting

Why this module?

The switch from theoretical knowledge of electrical engineering to practical know-how in the workshop requires a good understanding about the basic skills of troubleshooting. Utilising circuit diagrams, and being familiar with the properties and use of your own measuring equipment, such as the oscilloscope, is a basic requirement for the troubleshooting work for a mechanic.

What will you learn?

This study will help you understand the required equipment and its properties, and challenge you to start using it. You will deepen your knowledge in electrical engineering through measuring technology and you will reach a level where you can apply your knowledge about voltage drop and electrical operational preconditions.

With this online training learn how to use the oscilloscope for checking the condition of the grounding .
Learn to perform short circuit troubleshooting.
With this online training module, learn how to use the oscilloscope's trigger and roll modes as well as adjusting the time/division of the oscilloscope.
