"The Fourteen Annual TST Tech Training Big Event"
1. Tom Rayk - NAPA "Electrical World Class Diagnostics"
2. Wayne Colonna – ATSG "CVT Driveability Diagnostics"
3. Mark Warren – WorldPac "Engine & Turbocharging Diagnostics"
4. Scott Brown – iATN "Keynote Speaker"
Topic 1: "Electrical World Class Diagnostics"
This seminar covers needed electrical diagnostic techniques without the OHMS law and other formulas.
We will perform actual diagnostic tests on stage with a camera so the class can participate. Learn the
fastest way to perform VD testing and many other techniques that will speed up your electrical
diagnostics. Turn your technicians into electrical Gurus. Mastering your meter, lab scopes, amp probes and circuit
diagrams. Fix problems other shops can't.
Tom Rayk: Tom has over 37 years in the automotive industry and is a ASE Master Automotive Technician, L1 technician.
Instructor for NAPA, Ohio Adult Ed Teaching Certificate, MACS Certified, EPA Trainer Ohio Inspection program,
Curriculum developer, former Goodyear, Ford and Heavy Duty Trainer. Tom owned a repair shop for 6 years before
moving on to training.
Topic 2 "CVT Driveability Diagnostics"
Understanding how a CVT works is necessary so they can be properly diagnosed. There are several
different designs on the road today with each having their own unique principles of operation. This
session will identify them and go over their differences.
Wayne Colonna: President at Automatic Transmission Service Group, Technical Supervisor at ATSG, Author, Powertrain
Pro Publisher at Motor Age, Past Technical Editor at Transmission Digest, transmission specialist. Wayne started his
career in the transmission industry after attending the Lincoln Technical Institute in 1975. He has been a rebuilder for
franchise shops in the New Jersey and New York area, and brings to ATSG over 32 years of experience.
Topic 3: "Engine & Turbocharging Diagnostics"
Positive Aspiration/Turbocharging - Diagnostic Data Analysis. MAP is Back - Understanding Manifold
Absolute Pressure Data - PCV Design and Consideration - Valve deposits and cleaning - Calculated Load
and Absolute Load PID Analysis for Diagnostics - Fuel Economy and Turbocharging
Mark Warren: Mark is currently WorldPac Training Manager - former shop owner who has worked with many
organizations over the years including NASTF, ASA, AASP, SAE, STS, EPA, CARB, and others. Mark has a bi-monthly

Technicians Service Training
"Pressure Acquisition & Analysis, From the Inside Out"
Course objective is to take the pressure-transducer novice to a whole new level. the goal is for the technician with labscope/engine mechanical operation knowledge to gain the abillity to capture pressure waveforms (from the intake manifold/tailpipe and in-cylinder) and be able to use the information to make diagnostic decisions.
The course will cover transducer functionality with both absolute transducers as well as delta transducers. It will touch on the benefits and characteristics of both types of transducers and how they can be used to gain an edge. Diagnostic-approach will be carried out using real world examples and actual case studies from my own library. Attendees leave with confidence to invest in the tooling to perform pressure testing and analysis to improve accuracy and efficiency.
Brandon Steckler: Brandon began his career in Northampton County Community College in Bethlehem, PA. There, he was a student of GM’s Automotive Service Educational program. In 2001, he graduated top of his class and earned the GM Leadership award for his efforts. He later began working as a technician at a Saturn dealership in Reading, PA where he quickly attained Master Technician status. He later transitioned to working with Hondas where he aggressively worked to attain another Master Technician status.Always having a passion for a full-understanding of system/component functionality, he rapidly earned a reputation for deciphering strange failures at an efficient pace and became known as an information specialist amongst the staff and peers at the dealership. In search of new challenges, he once again transitioned away from the dealership and to the independent-world, where he specializes in diagnostics and drivability. Today, he is a working technician at a large facility near the NE side of Philadelphia, PA. Along with beta testing for Automotive Test Solutions, he writes for Motor Age Magazine, teaches for CarQuest Technical Institute as well as WorldPAC, INC. and develops curriculum/submits case studies for other training companies. Brandon contributes weekly to FaceBook Automotive Chat groups and truly enjoys helping others to attain a level of understanding that will serve them well throughout their careers. Brandon’s Certifications: ASE CMAT A1- A9, ASE C1 Service Consultant, ASE L1, L2, L3 Advanced Level Specialist

“Advanced Use of the Oscilloscope”
Instructor Bernie Thompson
This is an advanced class on oscilloscope use. The oscilloscope is the technician’s window into this world of waveform relationships. In order to understand electronic circuits, you must first understand the relationship between different electronic devices. This class starts with how the waveform is created, but mostly emphasizes new and practical techniques for analyzing waveforms. Afterward, the seminar focuses on the interaction of waveforms and using this information to determine where exactly the failure is located. Real world problems are explained in detail so you will be able to use this information in the service bay for faster diagnostics on modern vehicles.
Advanced Use of the Oscilloscope
Bernie Thompson of ATS teaches technicians at February 2009's TST seminar about the Oscilloscope, from the basics to its most advanced uses. This is perhaps our most advanced seminar ever presented, but attendees agree that no one is left in the dust.
**IMPORTANT NOTE: There is a case study missing at the end of this seminar. This was due to technical difficulties out of our control. We regret that this information is NOT available. We apologize for the inconvenience.Bernie Thompson
