Zeus Lab Scope Operation & Data Management Certification Badge Details


The Snap-on Zeus Lab Scope Operation & Data Management Certification Certification continues to raise the bar for technical training for students entering the automotive repair industry. The course curriculum enables students to acquire TOOLS FOR LIFE they need to unlock the full potential of this sophisticated tool, and provides the insight and experience required to service computer-controlled vehicles.

Today’s vehicles require computerized diagnostics to accurately identify problems. As the leader in aftermarket automotive diagnostics, Snap-on has developed hands-on classroom training and advanced lab exercises to master this powerful diagnostic tool.
