Delmar Learning says its new set of training courses is geared toward both medium- and heavy-duty truck technicians. The Professional Truck Technician Training Series (PTTTS)
is available in both CD-ROM and web-based formats. The courses are said to focus on engaging technicians and optimizing information retention through the use of true-to-life animations and interactivities in a way that can’t be achieved through traditional printed products. Each course contains the most up-to-date theory, application, and diagnostic material needed for today’s technicians, Delmar says.

These courses follow both the U.S. National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) standards. To better ensure that the material is understood and best retained, each course contains end-of-section review questions, as well as a comprehensive review at the end of the course. A printable certificate of completion is given to each user who achieves a score of 80% or higher.

Courses in this series include three that are available now: Brakes,Electricity and Electronics, and Preventive Maintenance. A course on Suspension and Steering will be published before the end of 2007, and two more —
Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning and Drive Train — will be available next Spring.
