Alignment Fundamentals and Vehicle Vibrations class offered at UWA

The University of West Alabama (UWA) is offering an Automotive Technology class in Alignment Fundamentals and Vehicle Vibrations on July 22 and July 29.  Sponsored by UWA’s College of Business and Technology, and the Division of Economic Development and Outreach, the Saturday class is limited to 10 students and will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Hunt Annex on the UWA campus.

Topics covered in the four-wheel alignment class include alignment theory, equipment operation and OEM adjustment methods. The class will use Hunter Engineering Company equipment.

Class learning objects include the ability to describe camber, caster, toe and thrust angle and the related effects these angles have on tire wear and vehicle handling. Students will also perform proper pre-alignment inspection of the suspension and steering systems, set up the Hunter aligner and accurately measure the adjustable angles and perform a four-wheel alignment using the most OEM adjustment methods found on today’s vehicles using SLA and strut suspension systems.

Vehicle Service Technicians are encouraged to attend the class and previous automotive experience is required.

The course fee is $400 per student.  The class is limited to 10 students, so register now to ensure your seat. 

Registration deadline is July 17, 2017.
