Autel Launches Autel Academy with Onsite Courses

Autel announced it will be launching the Autel Training Academy next month at its U.S. headquarters in New York.

Autel announced it will be launching the Autel Training Academy next month at its U.S. headquarters in New York, providing technicians and shop owners with hands-on one- and two-day training courses. The first set of classes will be an intensive two-day course focusing on diagnostics, alignment and ADAS calibrations. 

Classes are intended for current and potential owners of Autel ADAS calibration equipment.

The academy’s first onsite training, scheduled for July 24-25, 2023, will offer comprehensive education and instruction on ADAS calibration. The two-day, 16-hour course will provide students with a thorough understanding of the technology and functionality of these safety systems. The training comprises classroom lectures in Autel’s 30-seat classroom with hands-on instruction on Autel products in the newly constructed 2,800-square-foot demonstration and training facility featuring the new Autel ADAS Bay Max 14K flush-mounted alignment lift. 

“ADAS calibration is the fastest-growing segment in automobile service and repair,” said George Lesniak, vice president of training for Autel. “North America has over 90,000,000 ADAS-equipped vehicles as of December 2022, with more than 15,000,000 expected to enter service this year. Today, nearly 100% of new passenger vehicles manufactured for the North American market are equipped with one or more ADAS features. With the rise in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), learning how to calibrate these systems accurately is more important than ever.”  

In the training facility, students will be shown on a range of vehicle brands how to perform multiple types of calibrations, including camera and radar for numerous safety systems, including automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist and blind spot monitoring using Autel tablets, software, calibration frame systems, and alignment and ADAS lift.  

Further, the class will review calibration space requirements, technician skill set, the importance of vehicle preconditioning, producing insurer-ready documentation and calibration troubleshooting. 

Two-day courses cost $1,295, and the one-day course is $695. Meals and hotel accommodations will be provided if needed.

Contact your authorized Autel dealer to purchase an Autel Training Academy (ATA) card at a discounted rate and register for your class online at ADAS classes are currently available once a month through December 2023. Space is limited. Please monitor the Autel Academy page as classes with additional training topics will be scheduled, including TPMS, EV diagnostics and ICE diagnostics.
