CARQUEST Technical Institute Expands Training Courses Available To Commercial Shops, Technicians

New HVAC, ABS, GDI and hybrid courses will provide the latest industry insights.

CTi-screenshotCARQUEST Technical Institute (CTI), the commercial training division of Advance Professional and Advance Auto Parts Inc., recently introduced four new technical courses available to technicians and shop owners in CTI’s 250 North American training regions. CTI’s training is designed to strengthen the skills needed to both operate a business and properly diagnose and repair today’s complex vehicles, so shops can stay ahead of the competitive repair marketplace.

New courses for 2016 include:

  • Automotive HVAC Systems: Essential Diagnosis
  • Antilock Brake and Stability Control: Operations and Diagnosis
  • Gasoline Direct Injection: Analytic Test Drive
  • Advanced Technology Vehicles: Diagnosing Hybrid Battery Pack Systems

“CTI provides world-class training for shops – both in-person and online – to prepare shop owners and technicians to be ready to best serve their customers,” said Al Wheeler, senior vice president, commercial sales. “In an industry that is rapidly changing and adopting new technologies, it is our mission through CTI to provide the resources that strengthen a shop’s ability to manage their business, as well as service, diagnose and repair today’s increasingly complex vehicles productively and profitably.”

CTI offers instructor-led courses in 250 training regions across the United States and Canada, and shops receive six courses per year delivered in their region’s classroom. Stand-alone and seasonal training events also are available, and are often-custom developed for strategic partners. Online training from CTI is interactive, allowing instructors to track participants’ progress and program simulation problems that correspond to service needed on an actual vehicle.

CTI currently offers more than 100 active courses. CTI maintains a 9,000-square-foot research and development center in Raleigh, North Carolina, which doubles as an active training site for destination events, regional meetings and more. Training is tested and developed by CTI’s experienced team within the state-of-the-art research and development center.
