Hendrickson Vehicle Suspension Institute (HVSI) has scheduled its next hands-on technical suspension training sessions for Sept. 9-10, 2014 in Edmonton, Canada at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).
Hendrickson says each full-day session includes classroom and hands-on training. The training is conducted by Hendrickson’s regional field service managers and topics include both truck and trailer suspension systems, trailer axle wheel-ends and brakes.
The HVSI program provides technicians, as well as parts and service personnel, with a basic orientation and hands-on experience for the recommended installation, service, maintenance and repair procedures for all Hendrickson suspension systems, the company says.
Hundreds of technicians from independent repair facilities, fleets, OE service dealerships and parts distributors have participated in the past sessions.
“HVSI uses a hands-on and a classroom training environment as part of the Hendrickson technical training program,” says David McCleave, marketing and aftermarket director for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems. “Feedback has been extremely positive and the training has proven to benefit participants who are working the challenges every day.
“Participants get to interact with our trainers and obtain the ability to experience real time repair procedures. We want our end users, technicians and parts specialist to have a great experience with learning about and maintaining our Hendrickson suspension systems. HVSI enables that experience.”
