Training Received by Technicians in Omaha, Nebraska

June 30, 2019

When your vehicle breaks down in the Omaha, Nebraska, area, or just needs some routine service, it can make you a little nervous. Because your vehicle's so important to your life, you need to be back on the road as soon as possible — with the problem fixed right the first time.

We've been checking into some of the training our Omaha, Nebraska, technicians receive, and we're very impressed. It's amazing how much knowledge and skill goes into diagnosing and repairing a modern vehicle. So it's not like when your uncle worked on his hot rod over the weekend.

Today there are four-cylinder engines around Omaha that make more power than the V-8's in luxury cars did 20 years ago. A new V-6 Toyota Camry could beat Sonny Crocket's Ferrari in a race to 60 mph/97 kph.

Our engines are more and more powerful. And they're so reliable. This is all due to engineering. But the benefits come to Omaha drivers at the price of simplicity. Modern cars are so much more complex from a mechanical standpoint that it makes your head spin.

Then there are the electronics. Some vehicles on Nebraska roads have several networked computers controlling most of the engine functions and many other vehicle functions as well. Omaha drivers take all of this sophistication for granted – but somebody has to fix it when it breaks.

It's a real challenge for the pros at Tuffy Omaha (Evans St) and other Omaha auto service centers to keep up. It requires a high level of commitment on the part of the auto technician and the service center. In addition to the training, there's the financial commitment to purchase the diagnostic and repair tools as well.

So where do Omaha technicians go for training? There are many sources. It's usually a combination of formal classroom training, training provided in the service center by auto parts and equipment manufacturers, online courses and home study courses. There are many independent certifications available all the way up to Master Technician.

Service centers in Omaha, Nebraska, have a lot of other resources available.  No one can know everything, so service centers like Tuffy Omaha (Evans St) subscribe to data services, technical libraries and even online communities that can help them when they run into a difficult problem.

It's like those medical diagnosis shows on TV. Here are the symptoms. What's the diagnosis and treatment? Diagnosis is every bit as much an art as a science. Omaha drivers want everything to be simple, straightforward and cheap – and sometimes it just isn't.

So, be more relaxed next time you take your vehicle in. You can trust the professionals at Tuffy Omaha (Evans St). You're in good hands. The more you know, the more comfortable you can be with your automotive service decisions at Tuffy Omaha (Evans St).
