Simply stated

“ACDC exists to keep Independent Shops in Business” 

“We make sure your 12 volt brain is well developed and then we create a high voltage brain to use along with it. Where the two brains match up the learning is easy but sometimes ACDC will break the connection between the two so your 12 volt brain is not used on a high voltage problem.”

New L3 Prep Book and Web training package.   Here is one review:

  • Thanks for the webinar. I was a Jet Mechanic in Vietnam. I had my own repair shop and second location body shop in Conn for 26 years. Training was next to impossible to find for an independent shop. I moved back to Calif in 2001 and went back to college. Got 2 AS degrees in Auto technology and am now working for San Luis Obispo Regional Transit. We have 2 Bus Hybrids And 1 Honda Civic Hybrid And 100 various Bus Platforms. Its a real pleasure to find a Great Source for Training.  Thx Fred Carlberg  2/2015

Craig, Wow, the book is amazing, the recorded video is awesome. Thanks so much for putting this together.

In the video, you mention sending lots of different info to my email. Could you send me that info.

Also, I would like to purchase another movie, still have to decide which (the $900 complete pack is tempting, but out of the budget to start into hybrids at this point), the OTC meter with insulation tester, and make a donation to the faat cats. My test is next Saturday, so Ideally I could get the video key early in the week to watch it.

Thanks, Jon

Also, I have a question about inverter controls with the IGBT and diodes.
