NGK/NTK, Autel collaborate to create diagnostic webinar series

The webinars are hosted by Philip Austin, Manager of Technical Training for NGK, and Mike Flink, Director of Sales and Training for Autel. 

NGK Spark Plugs (U.S.A.) and Autel U.S. have again joined forces to create diagnostic webinar sessions. The sessions, to be initially released through Autel’s live webinar series, were created over three days of recording at NGK’s Technical Center at the company’s U.S. headquarters in Wixom, Mich. 

The series consists of six 60-minute webinars that dig deep into system diagnostics of  domestic and import vehicle makes using the MaxiSYS Ultra tool to scan, scope, and test various components, including NGK ignition and NTK sensor products. The webinars are hosted by Philip Austin, Manager of Technical Training for NGK, and Mike Flink, Director of Sales and Training for Autel. 

“We are excited to continue our collaborative partnership with Autel and host them in our facility to create these webinars,” said Kirt Denman, NGK Aftermarket Director. ”Partnering to create content leveraging both companies’ technical expertise expands our reach, helping technicians to diagnose and troubleshoot repairs properly.  

“We are grateful for the opportunity to once again team up with NGK to create such valuable webinar content for professional technicians,” said Mike Flink, Director of Sales and Training Autel. “NGK/NTK products, Autel diagnostic software, and tablets complement each other and offer the technician a comprehensive, quality, efficient repair solution. In addition, these webinars offer a fantastic opportunity to spread the word about our products and provide technicians with meaningful instruction and advice.” 

When the programs live stream, all sessions will include a live Q & A. These webinars will then be uploaded to NGK’s on-demand technical training portal, which is accessible through The Shop Squad.
