Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has announced its 2024 brake school training schedule. 

From March to November, Bendix will host in-person and virtual training opportunities for fleet technicians, owner-operators and others to enhance the skills necessary for keeping vehicles on the road and in safe operating condition.

“Technical training is more important than ever – at Bendix, we hear this time and again in conversations with fleets across North America,” says Al Rollison, Bendix interim senior director, fleet and aftermarket sales and service. â€śTechnicians operate in a fast-changing commercial vehicle environment, where safety components advance rapidly. The pressure is intense for carriers to maintain overall safety, performance, and uptime – while striving to lower their total cost of ownership. It’s in this landscape that Bendix maintains its decades-long dedication to providing comprehensive, convenient training.”

In-person opportunities on the 2024 calendar cover seven states. They include 11 sessions of Bendix’s three-day Air Brake Training class, beginning March 19-21 at company headquarters in Avon, Ohio. To address market demand, Bendix also states it has expanded availability of its two-day Advanced Technology Training program. Four sessions are scheduled: two in Avon and two in Sparks, Nevada, with the first taking place April 16-17 in Avon. 

Bendix has scheduled three sessions of its three-day virtual training class, with one scheduled on Eastern Time and two on Mountain Time for the convenience of attendees in western North America.

Registration is open for the complete schedule of both courses, shown below. A member of the Bendix Tech Training Team conducts every class. The training team is led by a Master-level, ASE-certified technical trainer, the company says. 

Because of the quantity and complexity of the products covered, Bendix says it highly recommends that each student complete the three-day Air Brake Training course or, at a minimum, the online air brake training at brake-school.com before taking the Advanced Technology Training class.

Per-person enrollment costs are $475 USD for Air Brake Training, $425 USD for Advanced Technology Training, and $375 USD for the virtual class. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis, and class size is limited. Registration may be completed online at bendix.comB2Bendix.com, or rhsheppard.com; by phone at 1-800-AIR-BRAKE (1-800-247-2725), option 3; by email at [email protected]; or via fax (216-651-3261).
