Bendix announced Wednesday its in-depth technical training sessions schedule for the remainder of 2022. The company says it will hold events in Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and online, covering air brake training and advanced technology training.
The 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 Advanced Technology Training class 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.
Bendix says all registrants may elect to take part in a written test administered at the close of each 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.
The Air Brake Training course will be held Nov. 29 to Dec. 1, in Hanover, Pa., and online the following week. The Advanced Technology Training course will be held Nov. 8-9, in Avon, Ohio, and Nov. 15-16, in Sparks, Nev.
