Hey Moses, I didn’t go to college or am I AES certified. But I was thinking about trying to get ASE certified just to say I am. My uncle had his own shop. And My dad was a Mechanic as well. And now I have my own little shop. I have worked on a few hybrids and a couple 2020 vehicles. And I just started using a scope and looked in to Paul’s ( Scanner Danner’s ) class and I do believe it’s going to help me work on everything! I’m always trying to get better and Paul has impressed me so far. I’m not saying don’t look in to more training that’s always smart.

Man I can tell you the best tool set I have ever seen was A Metwrinch set i think my favorite is a 72 piece Patent No. 5,219,392 and a Solus Edge or one of the Snap on scanners. then you can get a cheap scope. now that i started using a scope i love it

Wow, I hardly ever hear anyone mention "Metrinch" tools. I've had the 62 piece set since the 90's. Actually it was like 48 pieces but I bought the bit driver pieces when they became available. I later bought the big 76 piece set.

I love these tools and use them about 98% of the time.

Lol yeah they are Mechanic’s secret. I have the 72 piece and I got the 1/2” drive set about a year ago. My uncle got me my first set when I was working in his shop in the late 90’s. And I have been in love every sense. When my dad used them he hated them for a while. He thought they where junk until he got to where he could trust they wouldn’t bust his knuckles then he got him a set too. To this day if I go under a vehicle to fix something my set goes with me

I'm not ASE certified. I only have my 609 cert.
Here is the best thing about scannerdanner premium. He is 1 teaching you the fundamentals, and he's also teaching you how to think. Those fundamentals and the strategies for problem solving are applicable to anything when it comes to electrical. I don't think theres anything that covers hybrids which I'm starting to see from time to time but I've done a very little bit of training on virtually.

I use launch x431, Autel maxisys, forscan, a cheap handheld autel (419 I think), autel maxiscope, a borescope, a thermal imager, and a whole bunch of scope tools. I carry a very basic set of tools as I don't do much wrenching and some specialty tools in a few bins until I get a van.

Take a look at the sticky threads in the diag tools and techniques threads on diag tools. That should get you started.

will this training in the premium section suffice for all newer car models 2020 and newer? 2) will this training be good for hybrid or electric cars as well or should i seek special training for that?


One thing is for sure, we're at the precipice of change. I don't know how anyone could answer that question.

I lived and worked through all the big changes. I was there when electronic ignition was new and scary. I had OBD2 training back in 1994 and it changed the game. More is coming for sure!

That said, what you get with what Paul is offering is solid reasoning with what is current. Some things will transfer to the future and some will not. That goes for what everyone is offering.

I have spent time researching and developing training material for gas, diesel, and hybrid systems. There is a heck of a lot to cover and I'm 7 years from retirement. I'm not going to finish. Paul is offering valuable information, much of it will transfer to other technology.

I don't know where you would go for hybrid or EV training. Most of what the industry offers is garbage. The biggest problem in the automotive training industry is that almost no one understands, or considers, how people learn and how to transfer knowledge. IMHO, Paul is doing a great job.

So... if you're asking if you should subscribe, I'd say yes.
