Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC announces the schedule for the 2012 Bendix Brake Training School, a program designed for both new and experienced technicians.
The school curriculum—conducted by ASE-certified Bendix Service, Warranty, and Training (SWAT) team experts—teaches maintenance professionals the description, operation, and service elements for all components found within foundation and air brake systems. Additional topics include Bendix brand air disc brakes, antilock braking systems (ABS), tire pressure monitoring systems, and stability technologies such as Bendix ESP full-stability system. The school includes detailed classroom lectures and operational demonstrations.
The 2012 school schedule will kick off March 20 in Owosso MI. Bendix began to offer training schools more than 50 years ago. To date, more than 250,000 people have successfully completed Bendix training, logging nearly 350,000 student training hours over the past 10 years alone.
Bendix will also conduct the training school on-site at attendee facilities. The school is part of the curriculum delivered both in person and via a number of interactive channels.
Participants will learn from a curriculum that includes the fundamentals of compressed air; tactics for air system failure mode diagnosis and troubleshooting; and air brake system and foundation brake components. The program also covers the new federal regulations for reduced stopping distance, which took effect in August 2011.
Courses are offered in more than 20 cities across the United States and Canada.
