Training & Clinics
More Than Just Parts
Making great auto parts is our bread and butter, but we know how quickly the automotive industry and automotive technology can change. This is why we offer training clinics across North America in English and Spanish. Whether you're a technician, a shop owner, a parts professional, or an automotive school, our ASE-Certified trainers teach the most up-to-date automotive methods and strategies that you will face in your day-to-day work.

Hybrid Drive Systems: This course highlights major battery components, safety procedures, high voltage tools and special testing equipment. We review various methods to determine if the HV battery needs to be replaced using scan tool data and road testing techniques. We discuss detailed Safety Service Procedures before, during, and after HV battery replacement. We review case studies related to HV batteries and TSB's and we take a close look into the causes of overheating and failure of batteries, modifications, and improvements and jump start and readiness procedures. This clinic will help expand your skills in hybrid battery service.
