This is one of the best online training courses that I’ve ever found in 20 years of looking. The good thing is that it goes back to the basics and let’s you review and/or understand how they work. Even better is the fact that you have your questions answered and any statements addressed. Having been a college trained Mechanic, I went through ASE Masters certification. I am now having to learn to add oscilloscopes to my skills. I’ve been out of the industry for a few years except for working on my personal cars. it is always good to have a fallback training class. Excellent job in providing training in the necessary skill requirements for picking up another method for diagnostics.

Great training

The 3 phase brushless fuel pump is amazing. How do you even begin to fix these without training.

Top notch training.

Thank you Darren. I use all your training as a field manual. As a heavy diesel tech. Not a expert at scoping. But getting a lot better every day ,thanks to your training material and the input from the community undertaking your courses. I really enjoy your training. Thank you and keep up the good work

About Darren

I started my journey as a BMW Apprentice technician, and after 10 years on the shop floor I got in to training. I worked up to leading the Audi UK Master Technician program, and it was there I realised just how much we take basic diagnostic fundamentals for granted!

I would reflect back to my time in the workshop, and how hard I found some of the diagnostic jobs I completed; resorting to guess work and 'Swap-anostics'.

In 2020 Mechanic Mindset was born, and I made it my mission to make the most complex automotive diagnostic subjects EASY to understand, so technicians across the world can be confident in their diagnosis decisions.
