Students are encouraged to bring up to seven used/locked proximity keys and their SMART PRO programmers. With a handful of transponders and the insights you will glean from this course you will be knowledgeable in the integration, generation and or duplication of over 90 % of the automotive transponders on the road today. With the knowledge acquired in conjunction with the ALOA's other dynamic automotive courses gains in automotive key production profitability can easily increase 10-30% with decreased demands for inventory and increases in productivity and sales.
