SCT Certified Tuner



All, I just got off the phone with SCT and I have my fingers crossed but, looks like I am taking a vacation to florida to attend there course on Sept 26, 2008. I will be certified as a Tuner on there SCT software. I have my fingers crossed.

1000 1 day class
300 plane trip to florida
200 hotel room
100 rental car

1600 dollars later :( But, the good news is I am doing for you guys and myself ofcourse remember I going to need a new job once I retire.. And this something I like...

SCT said:
What we issue is a certificate of completion. The standard training is $1000 and is a one day class. The closest airport to us is Orlando.

Plus, as we discussed -- this training is only for our dealers, so that would have to be worked out first.


Good News is I talked to a couple of local SCT dealers here in San Diego and they all have been very helpful to me. And have given me the recommendation to attend. So SCT has given me the OK.

Only thing now is the money:) Anyone in Florida? Well guys I am hitting the books like there is no tomorrow and brushing up on my electronic skills since I am at a neutral duty were I am working out of my rate.:( Well we will see.

FORD EFI Standard Training

In-depth 1 day training from 8:00 AM until complete (usually 5:00).

This introductory program offers you the opportunity to learn and review concepts of tuning with an experienced instructor in a classroom environment. You will have the ability to ask questions imperative to your specific business and tuning needs, discuss engine combinations and get recommendations on those combinations that have been proven to work. You will be tested throughout the class. The theory learned will then be put to the test, and you will be required to tune a real vehicle on our in house dyno. Once completed there will be a final exam that you must pass before you will receive your certification.
