Autel Launches Autel Academy with Onsite Courses

Classes are intended for current and potential owners of Autel ADAS calibration equipment.

Autel announced the launch of its Autel Training Academy next month at its U.S.-headquarters in New York, which it says will provide technicians and shop owners with hands-on one-day and two-day training courses. The first set of classes will be an intensive two-day course focusing on diagnostics, alignment, and ADAS calibrations. 

Classes are intended for current and potential owners of Autel ADAS calibration equipment, Autel says.

The Academy’s first onsite training, July 24-25, 2023, will offer comprehensive education and instruction on ADAS calibration. The two-day, 16-hour course will provide students with a thorough understanding of the technology and functionality of these safety systems, according to Autel. The training comprises classroom lectures in Autel’s 30-seat 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.

In the training facility, students will be shown how to perform multiple types of calibrations, including camera and radar for numerous safety systems on a range of vehicle brands. These calibrations will include automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and blind spot monitoring using Autel tablets, software, calibration frame systems, and alignment and ADAS lift. 

The class will also review calibration space requirements, technician skill set, the importance of vehicle preconditioning, producing insurer-ready documentation, and calibration troubleshooting.  

“ADAS calibration is the fastest-growing segment in automobile service and repair. 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,” said George Lesniak, Autel vice president of training. 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 (ADAS), learning how to calibrate these systems accurately is more important than ever.” 

Two-day courses cost $1,295, and the one-day course is $695.  Meals and hotel accommodations will be provided, if needed.
