OTC will host a free webinar for North America on Thursday, February 27, at 7 p.m. EST to answer questions and help technicians decide what level of scan tool is best for them.

OTC Product Manager Ed Lipscomb will moderate a panel featuring Technical Support Specialists Jim Wilson and Doc Watson, who will field audience questions and walk through some of the most common concerns prior to diagnostics purchases, such as:

* When to purchase an OEM scan tool.

* Quickly retrieving information needed to fix a car.

* When to add J2534 reprogramming to a diagnostic toolbox.

Viewers will be walked through a full range of diagnostics options, from code readers to fully integrated scan tools, helping better prepare them for a future scan tool purchase.

One viewer will win an OTC Encore diagnostic system valued at more than $1,800.

Technicians can register for the free webinar at http://bit.ly/OTCWebinar.
