Electrical training from Sullivan Training Systems (STS) is a noted electrical troubleshooting training program in the industry. STS has trained more than 4,000 technicians since 1996, and it knows what’s needed in the classroom to make the class work.
STS’s hands-on classes get the mechanic and technician involved, building circuits, testing components, and then finally completing a four-hour practical troubleshooting exercise to make the lessons stick.
One popular course,Fundamental Electrical Troubleshooting (FET), is a fully-integrated, hands-on electrical troubleshooting class designed specifically for technicians and mechanics who work on heavy trucks and heavy equipment.
This class has been taught to CAT, John Deere, Kenworth, Freightliner, VOLVO, Mack, Komatsu and other manufacturer dealers, as well as corporate trainers from CAT, John Deere, Volvo and KW.
The FET Shopbook, pictured here, is 120 pages of practical, hands-on lessons that make learning and understanding electricity easy. It’s been used at BOBCAT, CAT, KW, and more than 25 different trade schools nationwide. Written by Dan Sullivan, this “textbook for technicians” explains how relays work, what multiplexing is and how to use your digital meter like a pro. Since all techs need help with electricity — this book is written for them. Sullivan said the book is not just for those who work on heavy-duty vehicles, but for all who service electrical systems in automotive vehicles.
Sullivan explained that STS methods make it possible for techs to fully understand how electricity and electrical systems work, making them much more effective on the job. The company trains technicians of all skill and experience levels.
