Being a Towbar Technician is a varied, interesting and profitable career. You will be working with all types of vehicles including the latest models coming out of the showroom.

Having the correct training is absolutely essential. To be a towbar technician you must have a broad based knowledge that combines vehicle mechanics, auto-electrics, basic diagnostics and commercial bodybuilding which means understanding the different vehicle systems, working with complex vehicle trim and using the latest types of electrics. Knowing potential risk areas and the knowledge to work with them is a key skill that all towbar fitters should be armed with to save time and unnecessary costs.

This course provides a comprehensive structured framework for high standard towbar fitting and wiring disciplines. You will complete a course that addresses relevant automotive electrical theory, CANbus and bulb failure systems, vehicle management system coding, tools & equipment, best practice in towbar fitting, troubleshooting & fault analysis and the safety issues surrounding vehicle and work place preparation.
