WHY THIS TRAINING MODULE?
Tyre pressures is one of the most significant factors affecting the vehicle when encountering situations such as emergency braking and evasive manoeuvres. It is all about safety. Tyre pressure monitoring systems – TPMS have therefore become mandatory equipment for all new vehicles sold in Europe and the United States.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
In this training module you will learn about tyre pressures and monitoring systems. It also covers the main points in legislation and minimum requirements of operation.
Tyre pressure monitoring systems vary depending on vehicle types and tyre features. Manufacturers highlight different system values and characteristics such as operating with Run Flat tyres and the minimum driving conditions at which the TPMS should operate.
There are two main types of TPMS – Direct and Indirect Pressure Monitoring. In this training module you will learn the basics of both of these systems and how they operate, including:
- Checks required during servicing
- Carrying out general tyre work
- How to check sensors and their operation
- How to replace faulty sensors.
