What you'll learn in this electrical engineering training:

BAR Specified Diagnostic and Repair Training is intended to provide students a high level of competency in the diagnosis and repair of Smog Check failures. This training focuses on the areas of electrical/electronic systems and engine and emission control performance. Students with at least two years of engine performance repair experience and who successfully complete this training may qualify for the state licensing examination for the Smog Check Repair Technician License.

Course Objectives: By completion student should have strong knowledge of

2. Explain the causes and effects of air pollution as it relates to the automotive industry.
3. Explain the standards of practice pertaining to Smog Check licensure.
4. Locate, assess and apply vehicle service / repair information, in the process of Smog Check diagnosis and repair.
5. Employ appropriate diagnostic and repair processes based on the customer’s complaint, the cause of inspection failure, or vehicle data / information.
6. Establish a level of priority with respect to the repair of a Smog Check failure using inspection and vehicle data / information.

9. Describe and identify the types of automotive electrical circuits (series, parallel, and series/parallel).
10. Describe and identify the types of electrical and electronic components used in computer controlled automotive systems.
11. Describe theory, design and operation of automotive electrical and electronic systems.
12. Identify standard electrical and electronic symbols.
13. Demonstrate full understanding of electrical principals in detecting defects in electrical/electronic circuits, including, but not limited to, continuity tests, resistance tests, current/amperage tests, voltage drop tests.
14. Interpret electrical wiring diagrams and schematics to diagnose automotive electrical and electronic systems.
16. Employ various types of test equipment, including but not limited to a digital multi-meter (DMM) and a digital storage oscilloscope (DSO).

Engine and Emission Control Performance
17. Describe engine theory, design, and operation.
18. Describe the theory, design and operation of induction and exhaust systems.
19. Describe the theory, design and operation of fuel systems.
20. Describe the theory, design and operation of ignition systems.
21. Describe theory, purpose, design and operation of emission control systems, including, but not limited to, crankcase controls, fuel evaporative controls, air injection, exhaust gas recirculation, catalyst and other exhaust gas after treatment systems, and integrated emission control management strategies, such as spark control and variable valve timing.
22. Describe the exhaust byproducts of internal combustion and define the primary emissions resulting from this combustion process. (Oxygen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon, oxides of nitrogen, sulphur dioxide, particulate matter).
23. Explain the relationship of the air/fuel ratio to the combustion process and the resulting emissions (stoichiometric, rich, and lean).
24. Analyze exhaust gas readings to determine the best diagnostic strategy (4-5 gas analysis).
25. Employ engine and emission control diagnostic test equipment, including, but not limited to, cylinder compression gauge, cylinder leak down tester, fuel pressure gauge, ignition oscilloscope, timing light, pressure/vacuum gauge, DMM, OBD diagnostic scan tool, DSO, and exhaust gas analyzer.

29. Diagnose ignition system malfunctions or defects and determine appropriate repairs.
30. Identify root or underlying causes of engine and emission control m
alfunctions and differentiate between mechanical, electrical/electronic and fuel system problems and determine appropriate repairs.
31. Describe the theory, design and operation of computerized engine and emission control management systems, OBDI and OBD II.
32. Identify computerized engine and emissions control systems, subsystems and components.
33. Describe OBDII monitors: catalyst efficiency, misfire detection, fuel system, heated exhaust gas oxygen sensors, EGR, and comprehensive component monitors, evaporative emissions, secondary air injection, thermostat, and PCV monitor.
34. Describe the OBDII system modes of operation, modes 1-9.
35. Evaluate a vehicle’s OBD data, to determine the systems operational status and condition, including, but not limited to, supported monitors, monitor enabling criteria, monitor readiness, generic and vehicle manufacturer fault codes, freeze frame data, and fuel control.
36. Demonstrate comprehensive knowledge and ability in using an OBDII diagnostic scan tool to detect various engine and emission control malfunctions.
37. Demonstrate comprehensive knowledge and ability in using a DSO to detect various system / component malfunctions.
38. Evaluate a vehicle’s OBD data to verify proper engine / emission controls management functionality-repair verification.

You have the right to cancel the enrollment agreement you sign for a course of instruction including any equipment, such as books, materials, and supplies, or any other goods and services included in the agreement, and obtain a refund of charges paid through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later.

Cancellation shall occur when you give written notice of cancellation at the address of the School. You can do this by mail, hand delivery, or telegram. The written notice of cancellation, if sent by mail, is effective when deposited in the mail properly addressed with postage prepaid. The written notice of cancellation need not take any particular form, and, however expressed, it is effective if it shows that you no longer wish to be bound by your enrollment agreement. You will be given notice of cancellation form with this enrollment agreement and on the first day of class, but if you choose to cancel, you can use any written notice that you wish.

If the school has given you any equipment, including books or other materials, you shall return it to the school within 30 days following the date of your notice of cancellation. If you fail to return this equipment, including books, or other materials, in good condition within the 30 day period, the school may deduct its documented cost for the equipment from any refund that may be due you. Once you pay for the equipment, it is yours to keep without further obligation.

If you cancel the agreement, the school will refund any money that you paid, less any deduction for equipment not timely returned in good condition, within 45 days after your notice of cancellation is received.

The institutional refund policy for students who have completed 60 percent or less of the course of instruction shall be a pro rata refund. After the end of the cancellation period, you have a right to terminate your studies at this school at any time, and you have the right to receive a refund for the part of the course or program you have paid for and did not receive. You have the right to withdraw from the course of instruction at any time. If you withdraw from the course of instruction after the period allowed for cancellation, the school will remit a refund, less a registration fee $50.00, within 45 days following your withdrawal. You are obligated to pay only for educational services rendered and for unreturned books or equipment.

(A) Deduct a registration fee ($50) from the total tuition charge.
(B) Divide this figure by the number of days in the program.
(C) The quotient is the daily charge for the program.
(D) The amount owed by you for purposes of calculating a refund is derived by multiplying the total days attended by the daily charge for instruction.
(E) The refund would be any amount in excess of the figure derived in (D) that was paid by you.
(F) The refund amount shall be adjusted for equipment, if applicable.

If you obtain books or equipment, as specified in the enrollment agreement and return them in good condition within 10 days following the date of their withdrawal, the school shall refund the charge for the books or equipment paid by you. If you fail to return books or equipment in good condition within the 10 day period, the school may offset against the refund the documented cost for books or equipment exceeding the prorated refund amount.

Smog Tech Institute reserves (and will publish a schedule of changes that will itemize all charges.), the right to change tuition and fees, make curricular changes when necessary, and make substitutions in books and supplies as required without prior notice. Any changes in tuition or fees will not affect students who are already in attendance or enrolled. Enrollment fees are not refundable.
