CAN bus Troubleshooting Training

The CAN bus Troubleshooting Training is an online course intended to give technical professionals working with Controller Area Network (CAN) based systems the skills they need to diagnose and repair CAN related issues and restore the system to its original working function.

This course gives a high-level overview of the CAN technology and dives deep into troubleshooting procedures and techniques to diagnose CAN.

Course Objective: After completing this training, individuals will be better prepared to:

What you will learn

  • Use a Digital Multimeter to diagnose and repair issues with CAN wiring.
  • Help technicians decide a new Electronic Control Unit (ECU)/electronic components is needed.
  • Create and execute a plan of action to troubleshoot complex CAN systems

Benefits of the CAN bus training:

  • Engineers & Technicians: improving your skills and being able to better diagnose and repair CAN bus issues can improve your job performance and lead to better career growth and opportunities. The typical electrical training courses only briefly, if at all, explain the techniques to troubleshoot CAN. This course provides detailed actionable steps so you can get the job done!
  • Managers: our online course ensure consistent training for the entire team of engineers and technicians. As you know a well-trained team can reduce repair time, reduce unnecessary component replacements due to bad diagnostic.  Your customers will be happier with your faster and better service and reduced repair time, which in turn may translate into more repeat customers and more profits for the business. Consider adding our online course to your company’s education curriculum!

Here’s a testimonial about this course. Why I would recommend to someone!

Austin, TX (December 15, 2014) — General Dynamics, the world’s fifth-largest defense contractor, has chosen CANbus Academy to provide them with a 3-day training on CAN protocol, ECU Design and CAN systems integration.

Training took place at the General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems facility in Herndon, VA from December 8 through December 10, where a group of 10 engineers and scientists, experts in developing advanced information systems for defense applications, expanded their knowledge in CAN-technology.

“CAN” stands for Controller Area Network and is a networking protocol widely used in automotive, marine, machinery, rail, industrial and medical applications.

“ECU” stands for Electronic Control Unit and is a generic term for any embedded system that controls one or more of the electrical systems or subsystems in a motor vehicle.

The Course Project, the highpoint of the training, provided the students with an exciting challenge and a way to demonstrate the concepts they had learned. Their assignment was to build a Battle Tank. The class successfully delivered 8 ECUs interconnected with CAN network to perform the tank’s propulsion and weapons systems.

If your company plans to excel at CAN and vehicle technologies, let CANbus Academy provide the CAN protocol training and specialized knowledge you need. Our programs can be customized to suit your company’s learning objectives.  Our project consultation services accelerate your product market time.
