Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC and Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC announced Monday they will hold hands-on, in-depth technical training sessions in Pennsylvania, Idaho, Wisconsin and Nevada.

Bendix says its Air Brake Training class covers the description, operation, and service elements for the total range of components found within dual air brake systems. Topics include fundamentals of compressed air, tactics for air system failure mode diagnosis and troubleshooting, and air brake system and foundation brake components (air compressors, valves, foundation drum brakes, and air disc brakes).

Additionally, the company says its Advanced Technology Training class – new for 2019 – picks up where the Air Brake Training course ends, covering the operation and troubleshooting of higher-level driver assistance and safety systems, as well as diagnostic software. In addition, the session includes in-depth, hands-on maintenance for Bendix air disc brakes and electrical diagnostics.

Regarding the latter course, Bendix states due to the quantity and complexity of the products covered that it highly recommends that each student complete the Bendix Air Brake Training (three-day) class, or at minimum the online brake school at, before taking the Advanced Technology Training class. Both classes include classroom lectures and practical hands-on exercises, plus visual aids to demonstrate the components and related systems. Most locations feature operational demonstration boards, the company says.

The company’s May training schedule is as follows:

Air Brake Training

  • May 14-16: Williamsport, Pa. – Pennsylvania College of Technology
  • May 14-16: Nampa, Idaho – College of Western Idaho
  • May 21-23: Appleton, Wis. – Fox Valley Technical College

Advanced Technology Training

  • May 21-22: Sparks, Nev. – Bendix West Coast Distribution Center

The company says class size for the 2019 in-person Bendix training courses is limited, and enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost for the training class, per attendee, is $400 (U.S.) for the Air Brake Training and $350 (U.S.) for the Advanced Technology Training.
