4. Import Braking Systems: This course focuses on the most popular ABS utilized by Honda in the 1990s and covers microprocessor strategies, fault code flash-out and the differences between hard, soft and false codes. The class will also employ problem-solving techniques to help reduce common brake problems.

5. Automotive Brake Electrical and Electronic Seminar: The first part of this two-session course is intended to provide technicians with the fundamental knowledge of electrical theory, including Ohm’s Law, Kirchoff’s Law as well as series, parallel and series-parallel electrical circuits. The second session will cover electronic components, brake system sensors and deciphering wire diagrams.

6. Top 10 Ways to Reduce Comebacks: A powerful 90-minute segment on how to properly perform brake repair, this class is perfect for the entry-level technician or the master tech that needs a refresher course.
