This one day course contains the information required to understand how an engine management system operates on a 4-stroke petrol engine. The course also includes demonstrations of fuel systems, actuators and sensors.

This course will provide you with a detailed understanding of the 4-stroke engine, how engine management systems are configured, the principles of mapping and how mapping tables are used.

The course is held in a relaxed and informal environment. We provide all course material and refreshments. This course is aimed at someone who has a basic knowledge of the operation of a
4-stroke petrol engine and wants to understand the way an engine management system should be configured and how mapping tables are used.
