Access Online’s technical training courses will emphasize practical application of Hybrid Electric Vehicle diagnostic and repair techniques and tools, including scan tool data and PIDs.

FutureTech is expanding its Electric Drive Training division Access, with 27 online instructor-led training courses for Hybrid, Battery Electric, EREV, Plug-In, and Fuel Cell Vehicle diagnostics and repair. The expansion, dubbed Access Online, has begun taking registrations for its first-quarter 2017 training courses, with additional courses being added quarterly thereafter. The courses are conveniently timed for evening sessions and are run in 1-hour increments.

Early-bird registrants can enjoy 25% off of all Access Online training courses until November 30th, 2016 with no promo code required. Courses start at just $52 (including discount), and range from 1-5 one-hour sessions per course. Additional discounts and special pricing are available for bulk registrations of 10 or more by contacting FutureTech directly.

Unlike Access’ free 30-minute webinars that focus primarily on technical theory and basic systems overviews, Access Online’s technical training courses will emphasize practical application of Hybrid Electric Vehicle diagnostic and repair techniques and tools, including scan tool data and PIDs. At the conclusion of each training course, participants will be able to take their new skills back to their businesses and apply it to existing needs. In fact, each participant will receive a Certificate of Completion after successfully concluding each complete training course, which can be applied toward NATEF credits and other automotive professional development requirements.

Technical training topics include but are not limited to:

  •     Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) Battery Systems
  •     Lithium Ion Battery Family Systems
  •     Hybrid Electric Vehicle “Tune-Up” Maintenance
  •     Plus model-specific diagnostic and repair training on the Toyota Prius, Chevrolet Volt, Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, Honda Civic Hybrid, and the GMC/Chevrolet Yukon/Tahoe 2-Mode system.

Access has recruited three additional instructors to lead the online training courses:Yves Racette, Paul Pelly , and Alan Nagel will facilitate the courses alongside FutureTech’s Chief Technical Officer, Dr. Mark Quarto. Participants can expect the same high-quality training courses in Access’ online sessions as have been experienced in hands-on training.

Access Online’s training courses are perfect for automotive technicians, shop owners, service advisors, educators, new and pre-owned car dealers, fleets, and other automotive service professionals who find themselves tight on time and budgetary flexibility. Although hands-on instruction is the automotive industry’s gold-standard for training, Access is prepared to deliver quality solutions to those who are unable to travel to a classroom.

Individuals who are interested in a preview of Access' hands-on training are invited to two free hands-on training sessions in Las Vegas: Service Advisor and Manager training for Hybrid Electric Vehicles (October 31, 2016), and Battery Testing and Installation (November 4, 2016).

FutureTech has a combined 70 years’ experience in developing and delivering Advanced Vehicle Technology solutions. By understanding that the industry is composed of many equally important pieces, FutureTech can deliver multi-faceted solutions to automotive service shops, fleets, distributors, manufacturers, educators, and more. FutureTech meets the demands of today's automotive service professionals while developing tomorrow's advanced technology solutions.
