Delmar now offers ‘Diesel Engines’ and ‘Drive Train’, two new online courses in its Professional Truck Technician Training Series.
The engine course covers tool and equipment safety, engine fundamentals and operation, induction and exhaust systems, diesel fuel and fuel subsystems, as well as a variety of other topics. The other new course covers general shop safety, clutch function and components, standard and automatic transmissions, transmission servicing, heavy-duty truck axles, and axle service and repair.
The series gives medium- and heavy-duty trucking technicians more than 8.5 hours of instruction that can be completed at their own pace. The courses are also available in CD-ROM form, allowing technicians to choose their preferred format for training.
The courses are said to combine theory, diagnosis and repair information into one training tool, requiring that technicians engage with the course content. Animations and interactive elements are used to help explain complex processes. Periodic process checks and end-of-section review questions ensure users are retaining information as they work through the material. A comprehensive exam is conducted after the user completes all sections of the course, and those who achieve a score of 80% or higher are awarded a printable certificate of completion.
The courses in this series were designed to follow both the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) content guidelines, guaranteeing education that meets industry standards. They also meet recognized standards for web-based e-learning. Other courses in the series cover: brakes; electricity and electronics; preventive maintenance; suspension and steering; and HVAC and refrigeration systems.
