We are pleased to announce our new Intermediate Oscilloscope course taking place at the RMI Academy of Automotive Skills in Runcorn, Cheshire.


Course Overview

This one-day course will build on the basic use of an oscilloscope to facilitate the testing of automotive systems. Using a blend of theory and practical work, insight will be gained into the advantages of using an automotive oscilloscope over other methods of testing to monitor the operation of both electronic and electro-mechanical components. 

Course Structure

The training course will cover:​

  • A review of the basic set-up, followed by the methods of utilising the more advanced features and tools available to the ‘scope user

  • The testing of common engine sensors and actuators, with examples of both ‘good’ and ‘bad’ circuits and components

  • The use of the oscilloscope for testing safety related circuits

  • The ability of the ‘scope to monitor mechanical functions when used with accessories such as a pressure transducer​​

  • A brief overview of the more advanced functions of the oscilloscope, for example the diagnosis of CAN bus systems and related faults​

  • How to put theory into practice with hands on testing, as time permits
