Autel U.S. announced it will launch the Autel Training Academy in July at its United States headquarters in New York which will give technicians and shop owners hands-on training courses.
The training consists of one-day and two-day training courses and is intended for current and potential owners of Autel alignment and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) calibration equipment, according to Autel officials.
The first set of classes will be a two-day, 16-hour course on July 24 and 25 and will be focused on diagnostics, and ADAS calibration.
The training comprises classroom lectures in Autel's classroom with hands-on instruction on Autel products in the newly constructed 2,800-square-foot demonstration and training facility featuring the new Autel ADAS Bay Max 14K flush-mounted alignment lift.
"ADAS calibration is the fastest-growing segment in automobile service and repair,” says George Lesnik, vice president of training, Autel.
“North America has over 90,000,000 ADAS-equipped vehicles as of December 2022, with more than 15,000,000 expected to enter service this year. Today, nearly 100% of new passenger vehicles manufactured for the North American market are equipped with one or more ADAS features. With the rise in advanced driver assistance systems, learning how to calibrate these systems accurately is more important than ever."
In the training facility, students will be shown on a range of vehicle brands how to perform multiple types of calibrations and more using Autel tablets, software, calibration frame systems, and alignment and ADAS lift.
Two-day courses cost $1,295, and the one-day course is $695. Meals and hotel accommodations will be provided if needed.
