Full Description:

Diesel Exhaust fluid (DEF) has become one of the most important substances in the transport industry after diesel fuel. It is essential for the operation of some diesel vehicles and is used within the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system in modern diesel engines. This system was been developed to help reduce air pollution created by modern vehicles and to meet Euro VI emissions legislation.


This course provides the following:

  • An overall explanation of what Diesel Exhaust fluid (DEF) is.

  • How DEF reduces harmful emissions in diesel vehicles.

  • Explores what is meant by Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).

  • Provides technical knowledge and demonstrates the skills required to safely recover DEF from vehicles.

  • Explains how to identify diesel vehicles that use Selective Catalytic Reduction.

  • How to identify the DEF filler and the DEF tank.

  • How to safely transport and store this fluid.
