Technicians involved in the inspection of vehicle suspension and steering systems require specialist knowledge to identify the appropriate adjustments and where component replacement is necessary. Incorrect steering geometry or wheel alignment can affect the vehicle’s stability and cause uneven tyre wear. The principles of steering geometry, the operation of alignment equipment and the interpretation of measurements are covered in this course, enabling technicians to correctly diagnose faults and propose the appropriate corrective action. This course is not suitable for technicians without access to wheel alignment test equipment in their workplace.

This course is delivered by Bosch and upon successful completion qualifies for IMI Awards Quality Assured Programme (QAP) certification.
