Bendix will hold in-depth technical training sessions in Indiana, Kentucky, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Texas in the fourth quarter this year.

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).

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.

(Due to the quantity and complexity of the products covered, Bendix highly recommends that each student complete the Bendix Air Brake Training class, or at minimum the online brake school at brake-school.com, before taking the Advanced Technology Training class.)

In addition, the session includes in-depth, hands-on maintenance for Bendix air disc brakes and electrical diagnostics. Systems addressed in the course include:

  • Active Steering by Bendix
  • Antilock Braking Systems (ABS)
  • AutoVue Lane Departure Warning (LDW) System from Bendix CVS
  • Bendix ACom Diagnostics Software
  • Bendix ESP Electronic Stability Program full-stability technology
  • Bendix Wingman Advanced™ and Bendix Wingman Fusion driver assistance systems
  • SafetyDirect by Bendix CVS
