This class is designed to give technicians a solid understanding of each internal component inside the AVP® machine and the accompanying theory of operation. Coursework includes explanations of the operation of all AVP® machines. Students participate in hands-on exercises to develop the skills needed to identify, isolate, and replace machine assemblies and troubleshoot machine problems on the casino floor. They learn about safety, platforms, components, AVP® electronics, displays, power distributions, software, program installation, licensing, and ported/emulated software. Information resources, machine communications, bill acceptors, printers, reel strips, and PAR sheets are also discussed.
