About

Overview

DELMAR AUTOMOTIVE TRAINING ONLINE – DIAGNOSTIC SCENARIOS is a groundbreaking online training program that creates a rich-media learning experience for students by challenging them to learn approved diagnostic and repair practices in 62 realistic scenarios that span all systems areas. By combining strong pedagogy along with real-world experiences, students will improve critical thinking and problem-solving skills through this interactive program. Each scenario addresses a simulated problem on a specific vehicle and teaches students to use an 8-step diagnostic process leading to a successful repair while coaching them with tips. DATO puts students in the role of technicians employed by “All Tech Automotive.” It employs Flash animations, a wide variety of interactive features and live-action video to create a simulated but realistic modern repair facility. Students use available tools and diagnostic equipment, animated instrument panels, and service information to diagnose and repair vehicles. This is same approach used by manufacturers to train their own technicians that has been adapted to the needs and expectations of student learners. DATO challenges students to solve real problems on real vehicles from Ford, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda and Hyundai. DATO minimizes on-screen reading and maximizes student engagement by requiring students to prove that they’ve done the critical thinking and problem-solving involved in problem diagnosis.

Additional Product Information

Features and Benefits

  • 10 realistic and highly interactive repair scenarios take the student from seeing a customer concern on a repair order to verifying the repair on a specific make/model.
  • To arrive at the correct cause and correction, learners must read and interpret OEM service information and wiring diagrams in selected DATO scenarios and students prove their understanding of wiring diagrams by isolating circuits and applying assigned color codes.
  • DATO's Learning Mode offers support with embedded Help Cues, Tips, Knowledge Checks, Diagnostic Strategy Checkpoints, and selective coaching from Norm, the Shop Foreman.
  • Challenge Mode is an extended test in which the help features are removed. Challenge Mode requires the student to work independently through the entire scenario from beginning to end, complete the repair successfully, fill in Cause and Correction on the repair order without assistance, and achieve satisfactory scores on assessments.
  • Scenarios address and thoroughly teach specific, diagnostic-oriented NATEF Tasks in each course area.
  • Closed-captioning available at the touch of a button for those hearing-impaired.
