an automotive apprenticeship?
AOM012 is intended for technicians and industry professionals who require the knowledge of alignment data and systems. This will include ensuring that the vehicle is initially set up to the correct specifications and then using industry recognised wheel alignment equipment from Hoffmann Megaline record the readings obtained from the vehicle and compare them against the vehicle manufacturer data. The candidate will be required to adjust the vehicle’s wheel alignment to the vehicle manufacturer specification.
This is a pre-requisite before completion of ADAS calibration and relates to a large range of Automotive sectors:
The technician / candidate should be working in the Automotive industry and have at least three years’ experience to ensure they are familiar with the skills, knowledge and techniques required to replace various components, including returning vehicle systems to manufacturer specification and diagnosing system faults.
This Level 3 course (IMI Certified AOM012) is designed to give the technician an in depth knowledge of wheel alignment theory, interpretation of data, use of alignment equipment and adjustment.
On completion of the course, the candidate will be able to:
On successful completion the candidate will receive Level 3 IMI Certification.
This module is to assess the competence of the candidate’s knowledge, skill and ability to check the vehicles four wheel alignment / geometry.
State the mechanical and geometric measured values in relation to suspension and steering systems.
Understand the effects of incorrect adjustment.
Measure and record alignment values for all wheels to determine the alignment adjustments required.
They will also be required to use the correct process and procedures to reinstate the vehicle to manufacturer’s specifications.
Candidates are required to complete a multiple choice online assessment set by the IMI.
This course can be combined with ADAS Technologies and Calibration (AOM230). Please contact us for more details.
