Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) Technologies and Calibration – IMI Accredited (AOM230)

Cost: £510 + VAT
Duration: 2 days
Description:

AOM230 is intended for technicians whose job role involves working with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

This unique module is designed to ensure that the technician has the ability to calibrate Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). It demonstrates the technician’s ability to identify and correctly interpret information relating to a specific vehicle and its ADAS features to determine which method of calibration is required.

The module also assesses the technician’s ability to identify/locate and follow software-specific recalibration methods during the assessment process. They will also be required to use HELLA GUTMANN CSC tools and equipment in order to demonstrate their ability to calibrate two ADAS sensors on a vehicle with a minimum of two operating systems.

AOM 230 relates to a range of sectors which makes it a flexible option for businesses, these sectors include:

  • Light Vehicle
  • Light Vehicle Inspection
  • Accident Repair
  • Autoglazing

Technicians looking to undertake this standalone module should be working in the automotive industry and must have relevant diagnostic experience to ensure that they are familiar with the skills, knowledge and techniques required to calibrate ADAS systems.

Where will I study:

Assessment

This module is designed to ensure that the candidate has the ability to calibrate Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

The candidate will be required to identify and correctly interpret information relating to a specific vehicle and its ADAS features to determine which method of calibration is required. The candidate will be required to identify/locate and follow software-specific recalibration methods during the assessment process.

They will also be required to use the correct tools and equipment in order to demonstrate their ability to calibrate two ADAS sensors on a vehicle with a minimum of two operating systems. The candidate will ensure that by the end of the assessment the vehicle system(s) are operating as required and all advanced safety features are correctly configured to set parameters or customer requirements.

Candidates are required to complete a multiple choice online assessment.
