Workshops / Classes

We’ve currently got scheduled pre-planned training classes on hold for the time being. However, what we can do is this: If you would like to get some training, can get a few folks together (three to five) and can get everyone to a) agree on a date and time and 2) pay up front – please email us using this form so we can put something together.

Classes generally run three hours long and cost $25 per person.  We have to require payment up front because of how many times we’ve had a class prepared, materials printed, instructor waiting and had to cancel due to no-shows.  We’re also sorry that we can’t offer refunds, but we will take stand-ins if you can get someone to sub in for you in the case that you can’t make it.

Still interested?  Great!  Fill out the form at the bottom of this page and send it to us – we’ll get back to you and get something set up!


“Pilot” Women’s Basic Automotive Class

We had a great turnout for our ‘pilot’ Women’s Basic Automotive Class!  We covered things like: putting on and taking off a tire, where and how you would find the pinch points/jacking points on your car and how they vary on different vehicles, the dynamics of the brake system, what is underneath the vehicle/what those parts do, what is underneath the hood and what the various fluids are for, how to hook up a jump box in case you are stranded by a dead battery and several other things.

We actually used a portable car battery jump box and demonstrated how to use it if the battery was dead showing that another vehicle isn’t necessarily needed for the ‘jump’.  The class was about 2 hours long, we had lots of questions and even more answers.  🙂

A few of the comments we got about it:

‘Great overall!’
‘Excellent info!’
‘I’d recommend it’
‘Love the self-service idea!’
‘I think the instruction was very thorough for a basic class’
‘I thought it was great!’

We’ve got a few more class topics that we’re putting together and will be adding more as we get our hands dirty. 🙂

And a few pix of the fun!
