The Association of Diesel Specialists (ADS) has announced two technical training classes during the 2019 Convention and Trade Show, to be held July 29 through Aug. 2 in Orlando, Florida. The technical training sessions will be in the morning and afternoon on Tuesday, July 30.
These classes will be available to registered convention attendees for only $25 per class and will be held at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel.
The first class, “Cummins 5.9L & 6.7L Common Rail Diesel,” will be taught by Wally Mouradian of Automotive Training Group (ATG). This class was designed specifically to give a clear diagnostic path for engine management and emissions concerns. Bosch fuel systems and Cummins engines come together to create some confusing (and often invisible) Dodge/Ram repair information. Cummins designed the engines, but Dodge wrote the repair information. Very little practical diagnostic information was ever published, and what there is lacks any explanation of the purpose of each test, or a clear direction to go with the results. This class will fill in those gaps and provide the training necessary to solve difficult problems and provide proper maintenance.
“Diesel Exhaust Aftertreatment,” taught by Michael Oliveros, will take place in the afternoon and will include an in-depth presentation on Diesel Exhaust Aftertreatment systems. The class will include discussion of diesel exhaust make-up, aftertreatment system history, federal emissions standards, theory and operation. The class also will provide a detailed analysis on individual system components and sub-systems including: Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC), Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR). Other topics will include system troubleshooting and diagnosis, and tips for component servicing and cost saving preventive maintenance, as well as future systems discussion. A full color class manual (50+ pages) will be given to each student.
The 2019 ADS Convention and Trade Show will take place July 29 through Aug. 2 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida. Details about the 2019 ADS International Convention & Trade Show and the Technical Training can be found at www.diesel.org/2019IntConv.
