Snap-on has added ETHOS® Plus Training Solutions modules to its website,, to help professional technicians learn to use the many features and capabilities associated with Snap-on’s latest scan tool. The ETHOS Plus training modules cover platform, tools and settings, trouble codes, data, previous vehicles and data, and OBD-II.

“The intent of our Training Solutions modules is to provide quality product training that is available to professional technicians 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week, when it is most convenient for them,” said Jim Moritz, field training, Snap-on Diagnostics. “All of our modules are free-of-charge and techs can revisit the training sessions as often as necessary to learn at their own pace and comfort level. Watch for additional ETHOS Plus training modules to be added soon.”

ETHOS Plus offers powerful OBD-II tools including all ten modes of OBD-II. ETHOS Plus also reads and clears vehicle-specific codes with the definitions on-screen in plain English. Technicians can graph four live data parameters side-by-side to pin down the root cause of vehicle problems. They can also read service monitor data and reset service lights on many vehicles.

ETHOS Plus is not just for engine diagnostics. It accesses manufacturer-specific codes and data for dozens of systems on today’s vehicles, including newer technologies like TPMS, hybrid power systems, body controls, suspension and steering angle. With the optional OBD-I adapters, it will diagnose vehicles dating back to 1980.
