Free Assessment Open To ALL Fleet and Service Provider Technicians Through August 18, 2018
TMC FLEET AND SERVICE PROVIDER MEMBERS ARE ASKED AND ENCOURAGED TO CIRCULATE THIS NOTICE TO THEIR TECHNICIANS
TMC’s S.1 Electrical Study Group is conducting an assessment of fleet and service provider technicians in order to evaluate electrical knowledge. The cumulative results of this assessment will be analyzed and presented at the S.1 Study Group Session during TMC's 2018 Fall Meeting in Orlando, Fla., on Wednesday, Sept. 19. The assessment is based on TMC Recommended Practice RP 1204, Mechanic's Electrical Skill Evaluation, which was developed by the S.12 On-Board Vehicle Electronics Study Group. While the assessment does not ensure that the technician has the required mechanical skills for troubleshooting truck electrical systems, it will provide a benchmark for knowledge training and reinforcement.

The new and updated questions being used in this assessment will assist in revising RP 1204 to reflect the current state of truck electrical systems, and will evaluate the technician’s knowledge in the following areas:
- Understanding of basic electrical concepts.
- Reading simple electrical wiring diagrams with electrical symbols.
- Performing circuit measurements with a volt-ohm meter.
- Solving basic circuit equations using Ohm’s Law.
- Knowledge regarding the data bus.
