Bendix will hold in-depth technical training sessions in California, Kentucky and Nevada, as well as a virtual class, in August. 

Bendix's 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), the company says.

All registrants may elect to take part in a written test administered at the close of the class. Bendix will grade the exam, and registrants earning a passing grade will receive a Tested and Passed Certificate. Those who take the exam and don’t pass will receive a Certificate of Completion, as will registrants who elect not to participate in the optional testing. In-person Bendix training and the optional test are not affiliated with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and this does not take the place of any instruction or certification exam administered by the DOT. 

Bendix adds all in-person training adheres to the latest safety, health, and sanitization protection protocols, as applicable, including social distancing and other safety guidelines. All federal, state, local, and Bendix-specific restrictions apply.

The cost for the training is $450 per attendee.
