Denso Adds 4 Courses to Aftermarket Technician Training Program

Jan. 23, 2019

Denso Products and Services Americas Inc. has added four training classes to its wide selection of instructor-led automotive repair courses.

The courses are:

  • A/C Operation, Performance and Diagnostics;
  • Direct Injection and Air Induction System Diagnostics;
  • General Motors Drivability and Code Diagnostics; and
  • Vehicle Network Diagnostic Strategies.

With these new seminars, Denso offers a total of 45 classes under its Technical Training Program through the Denso Automotive Technical Academy (DATA).

“Our new and ongoing courses allow mechanics to keep pace with technology,” says Yoshiki Yoshida, director of Denso’s service planning, warranty and quality groups. 

“Advances are constant – in vehicles, as well as diagnostics – and customers get the best value when technicians are current in both.”

More than 23,500 technicians have completed one or more courses since Denso established its technical training program 13 years ago. The full- and half-day sessions use a “shop-up methodology” that emphasizes hands-on training led by instructors.

Denso says its programs teach technicians to rule out all operational and functional conditions first. This approach results in the least amount of invasive testing to save time and money and prevent the replacement of good parts.

“Taking the guesswork out of the repair process allows technicians to pinpoint the real problem faster, preserves working parts and gets the job done more efficiently for the customer and the shop,” Yoshida says.
