OTC to host free webinar Feb. 27 on scan tool buying

To help make the right scan tool purchase, OTC will host a free webinar for North America on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. EST to answer questions and help technicians decide what level of scan tool is best for them. OTC product manager Ed Lipscomb will moderate a panel featuring technical support specialists Jim Wilson and Doc Watson, who will field audience questions and walk through some of the most common concerns prior to diagnostics purchases, such as:

  • When to purchase an OEM scan tool
  • Quickly retrieving information needed to fix a car
  • When to add J2534 reprogramming to a diagnostic toolbox

Viewers will be walked through a full range of diagnostics options, from code readers to fully integrated scan tools, helping better prepare them for a future scan tool purchase.

One viewer will win an OTC Encore diagnostic system valued at more than $1,800.
