Hi Martyn

You certainly won't see anything inflammatory from me. My "Huh?" comment was made purely because, after reading technicians post a few times, I could not understand what he was trying to say. I am happy to discuss & debate with anyone, but I do so requires a little more clarity.

:D

None of us know everything STC, however, have a look here; http://snapontraining.co.uk/ and here https://www1.snapon.com/display/3791/Di ... eFinal.pdf

Snap On are now approved with their courses through the IMI and gain recognition, they are CPD compliant, not the selling equipment after work meetings, their day courses provided.

STC,

For all the good educated technicians that I know, VD with a Scope and Correct Load testing of Actuator Powers and grounds (pre & post 2005) is second nature, Safe & Conclusive.

I recently attended a college/university and spoke to a couple of Master Techs there who are specialists in Auto electrics, I advised them that I had not completed any electrical training in quite a long time and that I felt some up to date training would not go a miss, also I advised them what I was told previously about load testing electrical wiring on vehicles newer than 2005, they didn't agree with the Master tech who advised us students that it was unsafe to load test wiring on vehicles newer than 2005. Having just signed up for an 18 months course on vehicle electrics at a cost of £3500 I hope you understand that I also take the job seriously, and I don't think there is anything wrong with asking questions on open forums.

I looked at the links you posted to Snap On Training, the Evening Seminars & Day Courses are just as I thought and wrote in a previous post. It is all product training. Only an apprentice or Fred in a Shed could regard it as CPD.
I think Snap On have no desire to offer anything different, their trainers are more than capable of delivering the complete spectrum of automotive training. I know Vince & Peter very well, have done for some time, very talented technicians and trainers.

I am locking the thread !!

We will clean it again tomorrow.

I would suggest you both look carefully at the way you phrase your posts, and possibly stop the late evening posting.
