Learn the Basics of 
Electrical Diagnosis

ASA Offers a 4-Session Aftermarket Education & Development Course for mechanical and collision repair technicians.

Level 1 Technical Training. Please join us for an interactive, live, 4-session online technical course led by Brian Mann, ASE Master Technician, L1 and owner of Hands On Auto Training LLC.

This four-hour training class will be broken into consecutive online one-hour classes July 21-24.

Sessions are: July 21 / July 22 / July 23 / July 24

Each 1-hour session will be held in the following time zones:
10 a.m.,
 Pacific / 11 a.m., Mountain / 12 p.m., Central / 1 p.m., Eastern

This Level I Technical Training course is designed specifically for mechanical and collision technicians to broaden their understanding of basic electrical theory and reinforce existing electrical diagnosis and repair skills. During this course you will:

  • Discuss the basics of electricity
  • Understanding electrical system terminology and "common interchangeable words" to describe them. (Volts, Amps, Ohms, Watts)
  • Live analogy demonstrations to help students visualize current flow
  • Series circuit refresher
  • Parallel circuit refresher
  • Ohms law in reference to series and parallel circuits showing the math but with a main focus to help attendees understand the relationship, how resistance affects current flow and voltage drop.
  • Live demonstration boards to demonstrate the following:
    - Reading the wiring diagram
    - Breaking down simple series circuits
    - Determining what the voltage should be at certain points of
      circuits and then testing them.
  • The opportunity to ask questions to help better understand the basics and improve your electrical diagnostic skills.


  • Interactive, live, on-line sessions led by Brian Mann, ASE Master L1 Technician
  • 4 sessions, 1 hour each – participants must attend all 4.
  • Homework is assigned after each session to build your electrical knowledge.
