What is CTE?

What makes CTE courses different from all the rest? It is the hands on educational approach to learning-allowing the learner to focus on developing “soft” and “craft” skillsets while mastering Colorado, D51 CTE and Industry standards. CTE courses are performance based meaning the student must DEMOSTRATE continued GROWTH and MASTERY of the tasks.

Goals

Students will explore and demonstrate mastery of the following levels and topics.

Basic

Fundamental courses for all levels of technicians covering the foundational subjects specific to Briggs & Stratton products

Topics:

Four Cycle Theory

A complete program covering the fundamentals of all Four Cycle Engine operation

Compression

Ignition Systems

Program covers all Briggs & Stratton ignition systems

Fuel Systems

A robust program covering all facets of fuel systems, carburetors and gasoline

Governor Systems

An introduction to governor systems: air vane (pneumatic), mechanical, electric governors, governor droop, troubleshooting, and adjustments.

NAPA-Know How: Maintenance and Repair Lessons.

Intermediate

Intermediate level courses for all technicians covering a broad assortment of subjects specific to Briggs & Stratton products.

Topics:

Charging - Alternating Current (AC) Volts Tests

AC Volts test procedures for Briggs & Stratton alternator systems.

EFI 3 Cylinder Liquid cooled Operation and Service Videos

Charging - Direct Current (DC) Amperage Tests

DC Amps test procedures for Briggs & Stratton alternator systems.

Charging Systems

A complete program covering induction theory and alternator operation and testing

Diode and Diode Harness Testing

Test procedures for all Briggs & Stratton alternator systems which include diodes in the wiring harness.

Diagnostics

A series of videos explaining different diagnostics approaches: quick check, quick flow, compression, and carburetion diagnostics.

Intermediate Carburetion

Intermediate level carburetion, fixed jets, emulsion tubes and fuel systems

Failure Analysis

Failure Analysis can be a difficult task. This course will cover the most common failures including abrasive ingestion, insufficient lubrication, overheating, and breakage.

Advanced (Coming Soon)

Technically advanced courses for experienced technicians covering in-depth subjects specific to Briggs & Stratton products.

Topics:

3LC EFI

Propane Setup & Service

A brief explanation of everything required to properly setup and service propane fueled units.

Propane Regulator Theory

An in-depth look at how the fuel pressure regulator functions and interacts within the system.

Diesel Engine Theory

Video covering the complete operation of Diesel Engine Theory

Propane Regulator Tuning

How to properly calibrate the fuel pressure regulator for optimum performance.
