Training is essential for beginners as well as for those who want to enhance their technical expertise with Alientech. Every tuner should update and broaden his skills and competences in order to ensure a high-quality business.
That’s why at Alientech we have developed a complete, modular training program, offering basic information for the aspiring chiptuners as well as more advanced knowledge for professional car tuners.
Through an efficient combination of mechanics, electronics and automotive information technology, our courses will give you all the know-how needed to map an engine immediately and optimally. The training will be taught by our highly qualified and constantly updated staff, in order to guarantee you the best possible support and clarify any doubts.
A certificate of participation will be provided for each course, to certify your new level of knowledge and increase the confidence of your customers.
