Mitchell 1, a Snap-on Company, has recently added thousands of engine component and connector photos to its Tractor-Trailer.net and Medium-Truck.net online repair programs. As featured in TruckingInfo.com.
Both programs are updated monthly with new color photos, detailed procedural information, diagnostics and wiring diagrams.
Mitchell 1’s photographers routinely visit Universal Technical Institute (UTI) facilities throughout the U.S., to enhance the online programs. UTI, a provider of technical education training, uses Mitchell 1 online programs in its curriculum and gives Mitchell 1 access to actual component parts they use in training truck technicians.
“Because we utilize Mitchell 1’s online manuals in our training programs, the pictures taken during these visits supplement existing component photos and repair methods,” said Duane Kramer, vice president of new campus operations and programs, UTI. “In addition to detailed diagrams and trouble-shooting procedures, these images help technicians using Mitchell 1 programs correctly diagnose and repair vehicle problems.”
Mitchell 1’s web-based repair programs provide 24/7 access to service information to help diagnose and repair virtually any medium- or heavy-duty truck built during the last 15 years. Tractor-Trailer.net is used in TMC Skills Competitions to test technicians on their ability to use computer-based information, which is becoming more prevalent in shops where medium- and heavy-duty trucks and trailers are serviced.
