Delphi offers ABS training course

Posted on May 15, 2014

Delphi Product & Service Solutions is offering a new instructor-led training course focusing on the service and repair of anti-lock brakes, stability control and traction control systems.

Technicians can learn how to perform a brake bleeding process on vehicles equipped with ABS, how a hybrid brake-by-wire system works and much more.

COURSE NAME: Anti-lock Brake, Stability Control and Traction Control Systems

COURSE SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate to Advanced

AUDIENCE: All automotive aftermarket technicians

PREREQUISITES: A basic understanding of braking systems

DURATION: Four Hours

Topics covered will include the components and operation of anti-lock brake, stability and traction control systems, which are essential for understanding more complicated braking and chassis control systems.

A better understanding of how these systems operate will enable technicians to become more efficient in system diagnostics and repair. Course discussion will include some of the more complex systems such as hybrid brake-by-wire, torque management and total system integration including CAN communications, which is necessary so information can be shared between chassis and powertrain controllers.

Contact Delphi at (877) 550-8324 for more information about this course and the other 24 Delphi instructor-led courses, or see www.delphiautoparts.com.
