If you don’t own one already, there are plenty of opportunities to either get one for free or at a highly discounted price ($150 off the regular price). AND it will include a case for the rugged shop environment.

During the course of the program, webinars and other events will allow you to gain experience about Digital Inspections and how it helps increasing ARO, technician and service advisor productivity in your shop. These events are FREE to ASCCA members.
