Online Details

Online environment: You will have 30 days to complete this self-paced course, which consists of two methods of instruction: formalized training modules and a self-guided practical exercise. The class is arranged in modules, and each module is centered around an online video and some practical exercises. During the course, you will demonstrate your ability to use the GIT (Hyundai-Kia) EDR Tool and the Tesla EDR tool by collecting data from two different (one with each EDR Tool) vehicles/modules and submitting the applicable files. Once the 30-day period has ended, you may no longer have access and be required to re-enroll. Additional fees may apply.

Note for international students: The GIT (Hyundai-Kia) EDR tool and software are only available for purchase in North America and can only be used to collect data from vehicles intended to be sold in North America (USA and Canada). The Tesla EDR tool and software are only available for purchase in North America and Europe and can only be used to collect data from vehicles intended to be sold in those countries. If you are in a country where you do not have access to the equipment, you are welcome to take the class and exams but will not be eligible for a certificate if you are unable to complete the required practical applications.

This is an independent study, self-paced course. Although there are no specific times that you must be online, you will be required to complete assignments by the deadlines posted within the course. Hence, you must be committed to the course and invest the time necessary for successful completion. You should plan to dedicate approximately 8 hours to the online course instruction and 4 hours to the practical exercises.

The instructor will be available by email and help forum throughout the course.

Computer requirements You will complete the course entirely online. A dependable broadband internet connection with a Windows or Mac computer is required. You will also need a valid e-mail account and a Windows compatible laptop running Windows 10 or higher with a serial port (USB or serial). Adobe Acrobat Reader (free download) is required.
