This course is for technicians who want to specialise in VAG vehicles or have an interest in gaining the knowledge to maintain and repair VAG vehicles.

The course is designed to cover all relevant situations technicians encounter while working on VAG vehicles for maintenance and repair.

No previous qualifications are required, but individuals interested in taking this course must already own and be familiar with the VAG diagnostic tool.
