You may be an experienced service technician with a lot of shop experience with little if any electrical training but you have learned to "get by" over the years doing electrical repairs. You are somewhat comfortable doing it "your way" even if it's not the best or right way and don't always see how electrical training will help you at this point in your career. Or, you may be just beginning your career. But, the one thing every technician needs, regardless of experience, is Electrical Troubleshooting Training.
And that is what we offer.

YOU SHOULD BE OR CAN BECOME THE "GO TO TECHNICIAN" IN THE SHOP TO QUICKLY SOLVE ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS THE RIGHT WAY THE FIRST TIME. If you want to be better at electrical troubleshooting you need to take a few minutes and read through this page and see how Veejer's training programs developed by Vince Fischelli can provide you the necessary troubleshooting training. You can come to Dallas for training or you can purchase the same training and study at home.

Our students quickly discover they are experiencing organized, thoroughly researched, well written and proven electrical troubleshooting training programs without spending too much time studying electrical theory. Veejer training prorams dramatically shortens the learning curve as technicians achieve a high level of electrical troubleshooting skill faster than they ever imagined they could.

Get results fast as you begin to apply what you learn on your very next electrical work order.

We are confident that you can learn electrical and electronic systems troubleshooting with Veejer training because our training programs focus on what you need to know to do the job rather than just fill you with a lot of electrical theory that leaves you confused trying to make sense of it.

You can troubleshoot and repair electrical problems with confidence and get it right the first time without having to change a lot of unnecessary parts, which as you already know, wastes a lot of time and money and doesn't make you look good.

What makes vehicle electrical-electronics troubleshooting training from Veejer Enterprises so different is that we focus all our efforts in vehicle electrical and electronic system troubleshooting training. This enables us to probe deeper into the essence of the subject of vehicle electrical problems and focus with unusual insight on what a service technician needs to know to successfully troubleshoot vehicle electrical problems, as well as, vehicle electronic problems. Once you begin our training you will see what we mean.

Our troubleshooting training techniques emphasize a hands-on approach to get your electrical troubleshooting skills developed quickly. Our training methods help a technician be a better hands-on electrical-electronic system troubleshooter with less training time than you would expect. It doesn't matter what make and model vehicles you repair, everyone needs more electrical troubleshooting training like this.

We show you how electrical-electronic circuits work, how circuits fail and how to quickly find the problem in a circuit - any circuit - on any vehicle.

Get started now! Don't put it off any longer.
Read on to see what we suggest to begin your electrical training to become an outstanding vehicle electrical troubleshooting specialist.

Begin with our book "SHORTCUTS" which starts at the beginning in Section 1 with a brief review of essential electrical principles you need to understand . This is followed in Section 2 by what you need to know about your DMM and Current Clamp and a tutorial in Section 3 on how electrical circuits work. Then "SHORTCUTS"moves into electrical troubleshooting you can perform on-the-vehicle with just a DMM and DC Current Clamp.

"SHORTCUTS" also provides practice worksheets to guide you through electrical testing on-the-vehicle for electrical troubleshooting practice to get it right the first time. Simply practice these troubleshooting exercises a few times and see how they guide you to the problem. "SHORTCUTS" wraps up with exercises on how to read schematic diagrams.

It's simply amazing how much electrical system troubleshooting a service technician can perform on-the-vehicle with just a DMM and a Current Clamp when he/she knows how.
"SHORTCUTS" also shows you how and when to incorporate additional electrical training programs from Veejer Enterprises into your personal electrical troubleshooting training program to continue developing your electrical troubleshooting skills. Become the "Go-To-Tech" in your shop."


 The next training program we suggest (along with "SHORTCUTS")
is our electric flip chart called -
"FIRST THINGS FIRST"
- which shows a technician how to run a quick initial test of a 14V electrical system in about 5-8 minutes. The FIRST THINGS FIRST test procedure is very important to perform
FIRST if you have one of these-

(1) an electrical problem,
(2) an on-board computer failure,
(3) or especially when you have a no-code driveability issue.

The FIRST THINGS FIRST flip-chart shows you how to perform each test and the DMM reading you should get. It then suggests what to check if you find an electrical problem becaue a DMM reading is too high or too low. Sample our vehicle electrical system troubleshooting flip-chart, FIRST THINGS FIRST used throughout the auto service industry and truck service industry to check out an auto electrical or truck electrical system. Check the battery, the cranking circuit, primary ground circuits (engine ground and accessory ground) and charging system using only a DMM and FIRST THINGS FIRST which guides a tech step-by-step.

Read about the "Hands-On" Electrical Troubleshooting Training Program below!
You don't learn how to correctly troubleshoot electrical circuits by simply reading about it or watching someone else to do it.
YOU HAVE TO DO IT YOURSELF AND PRACTICE TO GET IT RIGHT.
Our "hands-on" electrical troubleshooting training program shows you how with live Troubleshooting Trainer practice!

Continue with more hands-on
electrical troubleshooting training!

This next hands-on electrical troubleshooting training program uses specially designed live circuit board Troubleshooting Trainers to simulate actual auto and truck electrical circuits. Each trainer comes with its own training manual written expressly for home-study that guide you every step of the way to teach you how to troubleshoot auto and truck electrical circuits.

You will learn how to CORRECTLY test circuits commonly found in automobiles and trucks with a DMM to recognize good and bad voltage and resistance readings. After mastering circuit measurement skills, you, or someone you designate, will insert electrical problems on the bottom of the Troubleshooting Trainers for you to create a wide variety of open circuits, voltage drops, short circuits, shorts to ground and shorts to voltage at any point in the circuit just as these problems would occur in an actual auto or truck circuit. Then you practice troubleshooting from the top of the Troubleshooting Trainers to find the electrical circuit problem. This format is repeated to teach you electrical troubleshooting. Troubleshoot each electrical problem one at a time to develop your troubleshooting skill. Techs tell us they have so much fun learning how to troubleshoot auto electrical circuits with this hands on training program the time flies by.

Since 1988 Veejer Enterprises has been conducting electrical - electronics troubleshooting training workshops in automotive electrical system troubleshooting & repair as well as automotive electronics troubleshooting & repair. These highly rated workshops have shown auto, truck and heavy equipment service technicians how to diagnose, troubleshoot and perform electrical repairs and electronic system repairs with skill and confidence.

It's simply amazing how much vehicle electrical system troubleshooting a service technician can perform with just a DMM and a Current Clamp when he/she knows how.

Let our training programs show you how! Don't waste time and money changing parts to repair electrical problems. Learn how to troubleshoot vehicle electrical and electronic circuits and then replace only the part with the problem. That's a great way to eliminate "customer comebacks" and save time and money because the original electrical problem is corrected properly the first time.


Now, what's the real issue for professional auto/truck/heavy equipment service technicians working on electrical and electronic system problems?

When it comes to working on a vehicle's electrical system, electronic (computer) system and dealing with driveability problems - it doesn't matter how much electrical and electronics theory a technician knows - what's important is can a technician effectively translate his electrical knowledge to hands-on troubleshoot the electrical system, computer system or the driveability problem using electronic test equipment (DMM, Current Clamp, Logic Probe, Lab Scope) to determine what needs to be done.

If any technician has doubts about his/her ability to do all this (and be honest with yourself) then you will benefit from our hands-on troubleshooting training programs. The key words that set Veejer training apart are
hands-on electrical-electronics troubleshooting training.

You will have more fun and enjoy your job more if you learn how to troubleshoot vehicle electrical and electronic systems. Plus you will make a lot more money along the way. Our training programs show you how.
